As a full kitchen can take up a big part of the basement renovation budget it is important to focus on your final vision. We offer a wide range of options in design from budget to extravagant to make it perfect for you.
There is nothing like playing the family games, or cuddling by the fireplace on a cold winter evening. Real or gas, the fire provides you with the coziness and warmth that is hard to put a price tag on. Moreover, it helps to infuse the functional and uninspired place with the feeling of joy and add a personal touch.
The variety of options and designs for fireplaces will leave you pleasantly surprised with the choices of styles from modern to traditional, as well as finishing materials. In terms of the room layout, it is always convenient to use as a focal point – to bring the entire room design together.
Family Space Planning
Most basement remodeling projects have the creation of ideal family space at their heart. A place where the whole family will come together, for quiet evenings, celebrations, watching tv and playing games!. It will be easier to plan an ideal place for your family once you answer these questions:
