Freestylin Design – Home Remodel with specialists who know a thing or two about design and remodeling.
Freestylin Design Remodeling can collaborate with you to optimize your basement design plan. If you’re interested in finishing off the basement and adding living space, then we can help you with a design to make this project a huge success. Here are few factors to consider in the design phase.
The Basement Plan. A basement can be transformed into a multi-purpose room. The design phase allows us to go from the many options and to narrow them by looking at the function that you are looking for, the style and the budget. Whether we are creating an exercise room or a home theater, we can create the perfect plan in place to make that occur.
Lighting is an important element of the basement design. Due to where basements are located they generally do not have much access to outside light, so more attention needs to be paid on how to adequately light the space. We can use a combination of natural light, central lighting, and ambient light and possibly employ dimmers
Before the renovations can start, we’ll want to make sure that we have the appropriate plumbing in place and that we can cover unsightly pipes and ducts. However, if the function of the basement is for storage or exercise than there can be more tolerance for some of the pipes and duct work being exposed.
Choosing a color pallet for the Basement is also an important element of the design. At Freestylin Design Remodeling our design team works with you to determine which colors work best in the basement space. Depending on purpose and function will determine whether you have lighter or darker color. We will help with recommendation on high quality paint and will help you bring some pop to those basement walls.
A critical part of basement remodeling is waterproofing. Many times basements can have water related challenges so we want to make sure that we are waterproofing the basement. During the design plan we are going to recommend options that will keep the basement dry. Water threats can come from leaks, high water tables seeping in, humidity and moisture build up which can wreak havoc on basement walls, paint and flooring. That is why we take extra time in the planning phase so we can address potential threats, develop solutions and execute the plan in confidence.
