Walkout Basements


If you own a split level house, you have a great advantage of enjoying extra walkout basement space. In fact, many people look for the potential for a walkout basement at the stage of shopping for the right house. And it is easy to see why!

It opens a lot of possibilities, as it simply adds the whole floor of usable space to your house. Moreover, it does feel like a ground floor, light airy, and with direct walkout access to your backyard.

In your walkout basement you can create:

  • Independent apartment for extra income, or your family members
  • Space for home-based business: daycare, hairdressers, beauticians or nail salon
  • A yoga studio, or in-home gym
  • Cozy family room
  • Great play space for your kids
  • Great party room with direct access to backyard

Indeed, it can accommodate any ideas for a lot of extra space!

Getting the maximum potential of your walkout basement

When you are planning to finish or renovate this fabulous extra space you have to have your family needs and lifestyle in mind. The longer you lived in the house – the faster you will be able to formulate the concept for the space.

To start working on planning your basement renovation focus on the following questions:

  • What areas and rooms are missing in your house?
  • Do you work from home a lot?
  • Do you need extra income from an in-law apartment?
  • Would you prefer your kids play and sports area in one place, rather than deal with all the toys all over the house?
  • Do you entertain often?
  • What hobbies do you have?
  • Do you want to splurge on an expanded entertainment area complete with home theater, bar, and pool table?
