Basement Renovation FAQs

How long do basement renovations take?

There are several factors that affect the duration of renovating a basement. It includes the size, finishing, etc. We can give you a better and more accurate answer when you provide us with a free estimate for your basement renovation.

How much do basement renovations cost?

Basement renovations cost in 2023 range from $30 to over $75 per square foot. For example, a 1,000-square-foot basement would cost about $30,000 to over $75,000 to finish. Actual pricing depends on the materials and layout selected. We recommend getting you a Free Estimate. It’s better to get current cost estimates for your project.

Is basement renovations worth it?

A renovated basement will increase the space, and the square footage of your home also will increase the value of your house. It helps you create more space and also use it as a rental property. Since the pandemic, the demand for rentals has gone up a lot. As of 2023 vacancy rates are low and there is more demand for rental units. A worthwhile investment to finish your basement.

What is basement underpinning?

Basement underpinning is a process many homeowners undergo to add height to their low-ceiling basements. 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 close by. 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 to rent out to prospective tenants for generating rental income. 

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 molding, painting the ceiling the same color 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. You can rent your legally finished basement to tenants very easily in 2023 because in this market the demand for rental is quite high with a significant increase in population across Canada especially in Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area. A property with rental income from the basement rental has a higher value that helps to pay for the mortgage payments and generates extra income for you.

Basement Finishing and Basement Renovations Ideas for 2023 and Beyond

When it comes to our basements, we usually see these rooms as drab and we don’t always know what to do with them. Thankfully there are numerous ways to decorate your basement and you can choose from the most outlandish to the most sophisticated design scheme. Many families use the finished basement as a home theater room or games room while others have created beautiful bedrooms in the basements.

If you’re stuck on ideas, talk to us or took through interior design magazines and talk to those who are experienced in decorating to get suggestions. Here are some basement finishing ideas to start with.

Finished Basement As Your Child’s Playground

If your child’s bedroom is small, you can provide another room for the child to hang out in by turning the basement into a playroom. Install soft and stylish carpeting in the basement and you can put a few boxes of your child’s favorite toys in the basement. If you want your child to not depend on video games for entertainment you can put jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, and craft materials in the playroom for the kids to enjoy. Paint the basement walls in fun and gender-neutral colors such as tan, blue, yellow, green, red, and orange.

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 a 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.
