How Will You Use Your Finished Basement Space?
We’ve created many basement spaces that look nothing alike because the homeowners had different purposes in mind. How you plan to use your basement space will help determine the detailed basement design plan.
Basement Bar Ideas
Whether you are looking to enjoy a man cave style bar or even a cigar lounge, we have many build and remodel ideas for the recreational basement bar! Put together your basement bar ideas and we’ll help you create a new basement design. You can entertain with a full size “U”-shaped bar, a dance floor, an area built to host an array of billiards and game tables, a smaller “L”-shaped walk- up bar, or even a gaming system fit for a king! You’ll be the envy of every man on the block!
Entertainment Room/TV Area
Let us create the ultimate entertainment area with a custom built-in entertainment center to host all of your TV, components, and gaming consoles, while hiding all those messy wires! Our cabinetry adds a stylish touch that creates class and even increases the resale value of your home. Your entertainment system can be wired traditionally for sound, or you can up the entertainment value by wiring your system for gaming. We can also design a Sound Room or Movie Room!
Do you have children? A child’s play area is a great way to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy your time downstairs. We’d love to create a special space in your new basement area just for the little ones in your family to play.
Living Space Concepts for Your Basement
When considering what to do with your basement area, why not consider all the options for design and concept?
Let’s add a kitchen and a bathroom to make the area more functional. Whether you’re entertaining guests or family, this option adds incredible versatility and a great amount of value to your home. Granite countertops, custom built-in cabinetry, walk-up bar, TV area…we’ve got you covered!
With a kitchen and a bathroom remodel or addition to complete the basement, you’ve created an accessible, versatile area that everyone will love. By creating a fully equipped space, your guests are sure to feel at home when given all the convenient homey staples, like a bathroom and a kitchen, that a normal home would have on the main floor! This also adds a great living quarters option for your high school/college student, a roommate, or even your mother-in-law.
Need to Add a Bathroom in Your Basement?
Here at Reliance, we pride ourselves in knowing a thing or two about adding up-to-date plumbing and accessible bathroom areas to your basement! Our team’s remodels leave you many options to choose from when looking at new designs or styles. Are you interested in a half bath with a simple sink and toilet, or would a three-quarter bath with a shower be more fitting to your home’s needs? With Reliance, you have the option to build an entire full bath complete with custom sinks, walk-in showers, a Jacuzzi tub, or even a sauna or steam room!
No Plumbing? Poor Plumbing? No Problem!
A bathroom remodel/addition to your basement brings tremendous value to your home, but only if the plumbing is done right! Keep in mind, if the plumbing wasn’t done properly, it has the potential to cause you incredible difficulty over time. A bathroom remodel allows for not only a fresh new basement design, but also the opportunity to either improve upon previous plumbing in the area or implement an entirely new and custom plumbing system. Our team is certified and excited to recreate your bathroom space, or even start from scratch and completely relocate it to anywhere you see fit in the basement area. Let’s get started today!
Natural and Safety-Conscious Lighting with Egress Windows
While Egress windows provide a natural lighting option in any basement room, they also provide a IRC approved emergency exit. These windows can start at $5,500 per opening but add a great deal of resale value to the now functional basement area in your home!
Maintaining the Footprint
Keeping the original essence and footprint of your home is important. We recommend you keep the same style flooring and paint throughout the house and we can do that! We can match your paint and flooring to make the basement area feel like a fluid extension of the rest of your home. Using these ideas to finish your basement will lead you to the dream basement you’ve been waiting for! What will you create with your basement?
