10 Basement Remodeling Tips

So you’ve got a basement and have decided that it’s time to turn that space into some kind of livable arrangement. Whatever it was that brought you to that decision is certainly going to drive you into what type of room you are trying to create. Whether it’s a workout room, a bedroom or possibly a new entertaining space that you want to use, you’re going to have to at some point think about the flooring that your going to lay down to make that space useable.

Sharkye11, Thank you. 2 foot square isn’t a lot of room for a vanity and finding one that small high enough will be a problem but I’m sure it is out there somewhere. Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate it. Sorry I’m so late anwsering my comments. I have been working on hubs when I have been on to try to get some traffic back but I have now gave up.

Homeowners in search of a warm, professional look for their basements often turn to drywall. Drywall ceilings help the basement look as good as upstairs living areas. Drywall can be treated with a variety of textures that are applied by roller or spray applicator. One difficulty associated with drywall ceilings is the necessity of framing in duct work.

The obvious first choice is a new coat of paint; about the most inexpensive thing possible and yet something that can change the look of a bedroom radically. Most people will prefer a light pastel color for a bedroom, but don’t limit yourself too far here. An accent wall can add a great deal to the appearance; one wall that is painted in a complimentary color or a different shade of the same basic color. A pastel green room, for instance, might have one wall painted maroon or a much darker green. Trim (baseboard, window and door moldings) might be the same; either painted a darker shade or a complimentary color. Ceilings are commonly white, but off white is also popular.
