A basement conversion can increase the size of your home dramatically. Whether you excavate to create it, or remodel to turn an existing one into usable space, it’s a great choice for many homeowners. Basement conversions are becoming increasingly popular in the Denver home improvement industry. If you’re thinking about Denver basement conversion, here are a few things to note.
Before You Start
You might choose to remodel and finish a basement on a budget. It’s a great way to expand your livable space without breaking the bank. Digging out a brand new basement instead? Be aware that the following factors can make yours a more complicated – and costly – project. These include:
- If you need to divert drains beneath your house.
- If your home has solid concrete rather than timber subfloors.
- If your house is sited on difficult ground conditions (clay, made-up ground, sand or marsh).
- If the local water table is high, necessitating constant pumping.
- If access to the site is poor.
Gather Ideas for Your Basement Conversion
And if you’re considering a basement bedroom, you’ll likely want to provide a bathroom for guests or family members along with the sleep space, which will make the fit-out a bigger project. Make sure this is something you clear with your Denver contractor beforehand.
Thinking about making the most of your new space by creating an office? Playroom? Media room? These are all fantastic options to explore. Work with your experienced contractor and project manager to gather ideas and tips for your unique new space.
