Why Its Important to Keep Your Basement Dry Many homeowners choose to renovate their basement to make it a usable space. It might become a childs playroom, a spare bedroom, a home office, or a game room. Other homeowners, however, do not need or use their basement, and prefer keeping it as a storage space or simply a part of the house that one simply passes through from time to time. Whether your basement is fully-functional or completely empty, its important to keep it dry at all times. Why For starters, proper sealing helps to protect against possible flooding. Its also important to keep a basement dry because any wetness, dampness, or moisture in a basement can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can cause such health issues as asthma and allergies (as well as more serious concerns).
Would you be happier if they were a different color, shape, texture Think about it, this is an easy little tidbit that can have a whole lot of influence on the vibe of your basement. Your basement needs these support beams, so why not find a contractor who can help transform your beams to look more chic And theyre made out of long-lasting and durable materials too. Crown Molding A lot has to go into choosing the right design for your basement walls. You have to consider what paint to use, if you want to use a wall paper border, sponge paint, or if you want to use crown molding. Molding isnt just the pretty edging that you see, but it replaces the aluminum trim that some contractors would have used or you already see. Also, molding covers the seams that so easily can make a basement appear older and even unfinished. So the goal of properly designed crown molding is to not only disguise the seams, but to also provide your basement with an attractive and sophisticated design.
Basement Air Is your basement fully-finished and beautiful, but theres a funky smell a-lurking Odds are there may be some mold in your basement. Although your basement may be finished, do you know if your contractor used all waterproof materials Yes, from your ceiling tiles to your floor tiles, you can have a fully and permanently waterproof basement. That means mold-free. So, if you think you have a mold-free basement, and theres still some smells or pet dander that you just want to get rid of, then you should invest in a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier can be hidden in an unfinished part of your basement and best of all, it will add to the overall enjoyment of the space. If someone walks into a room and gets greeted with an alarmingly pungent smell; odds are youre going to lose your guest. So, if your biggest concern is the air quality and maintaining clean and clear airflow, then consider asking your trusted contractor for the best air dehumidifier around. You deserve the best, so make sure you ask.
Remodeling Plans The efficiency of your basement design depends on how well you have converted your basement into an inhabitable area. You can create a recreational room for the family, home theater, wine cellar, teenage room, childrens playroom, spa, exercise gym or any other utility room of your choice with your basement. The actual plans and designs for your basement can be different depending on what you want to do with it. If you design your basement as a part of living space, you should also consider adding a basic bathroom to the basement to prevent frequent trips up the stairs. Preliminary Repairs Before starting with the basement remodeling, you should first take care of problems in your basement.
