Basement Renovation FAQs

How long do basement renovations take?

Usually, a basement renovation project will take about 10 to 14 days with an experienced contractor.

How much do basement renovations cost?

Basement renovations range from $30 to $75 per square foot. For example, a 1,000-square-foot basement would cost about $30,000 to $75,000 to finish, depending on the materials and layout selected.

Is basement renovation worth it?

A renovated basement will increase the square footage of your home and will increase the value of your house.

What is basement underpinning?

Basement underpinning is a process many homeowners undergo to add height to their low-ceiling basement. This process includes excavation underneath the foundation of the property and building a new deeper foundation.

Can I renovate my basement into a kitchen?

For newer homes that have a basement with plenty of headroom, adding a kitchen in the basement is a fantastic idea, especially since the plumbing and drain lines are closeby. This makes the process of setting up water-consuming appliances such as a dishwasher or a sink much easier and inexpensive. If you’re short on space, you can opt for a basement kitchenette.

What is a legal basement?

A legal basement is one that complies with local building codes and zoning bylaws and is thus registered with the municipality as a livable space that can be rented out to prospective tenants.

What is the best type of flooring for basements?

The most popular choices for basement flooring are laminate and vinyl planks, seeing as they’re durable and moisture-resistant. These two basement flooring options are great for a basement living room, playroom, or bedroom. However, for a basement kitchen or bathroom, ceramic or porcelain tiles make the best flooring option.

How can I add height to my basement?

You can add height to a low-ceiling basement by either underpinning it or benching it. You can also use some interior design elements that give the illusion of a higher basement such as recessed lighting instead of hanging lights, avoiding crown moulding, painting the ceiling the same colour as the walls, and using a high-gloss finish on the ceiling.

Does renovating my basement add market value to my basement?

Renovating your basement adds plenty of market value to your home because a renovated basement is built to serve a specific purpose, whether it be a bathroom basement, at-home office, or game room, which is an extremely appealing feature in the real estate world.

Upgraded Finished Basement Gym

For those who hate to go to the gym, why not take your workout home with you and turn the basement into a home gym? Purchase a treadmill, free weights, barbells, a trampoline and other exercise equipment to put in the basement. Install central air conditioning in the basement to cool you off after workouts and you can put a stereo system in the basement to have workout music. Install a walk-in shower with a door and why not a nice jacuzzi too?

Create A Second Dining Room

Another option is to create a second dining room in the basement if you entertain guests a lot. Repaint the walls with a neutral tone such as off-white or a light grey and either use contemporary or a more elegant dining room set for the basement. You can install dark or light hardwood floors in the basement dining room and put some pretty seasonal flowers on the dining room table. Some bold coloured wall decals would also look nice.

In conclusion, these ideas will turn your basement from drab to fabulous within days or weeks. Plan out the design before doing the renovations and choose quality over affordability when buying the materials for the project.
