Three Basement Remodeling Tips

Home Improvement

Do you have a basement that needs to be remodeled or finished so that you can enjoy the space more? If your basement is damp and dirty and not a very usable space, it might be time to remodel. Three aspects you need to consider when remodeling include finishing the space, staging the space, and taking care of any moisture issues. This may mean finding a company to help with dehumidification in Minneapolis, MN, or more simply, purchasing a dehumidifier.

Finishing the basement space typically involves making the walls, floor, and ceiling look like any other room of your house. If your basement walls are concrete blocks, then adding the framework and drywall will provide a canvas for you to paint. The same will need to be done to the ceiling, to hide any wiring, pipes, or air ducts that may be visible. A contractor can complete this job for you and make the entire process relatively simple.

To choose the type of floor for your basement you need to decide whether you want carpet, tile, laminate, or hardwood. Each has its benefits and how you plan on using the space will help to determine which flooring will serve your needs the best.

When choosing paint and flooring colors, be sure to choose lighter colors if you do not have very much natural light coming in. Lighter colors can make a darker space seem brighter and can likewise make a smaller space seem larger. You do not need to choose white, but keep in mind that the darker the colors, the darker and smaller the space will appear.

Once your basement space is finished, you will need to decide how to stage it. Staging refers to the arrangement of furniture and decorative items. There are many uses for a basement, including workout space, family room, game room, and home office. You need to first determine the priority use of the space and then decorate and arrange the space accordingly. Hanging mirrors on the wall can help create the appearance of a larger space.

If your basement tends to be humid, or feel damp, you will need to address this issue to prevent mold from developing. Mold prefers to grow in warm, damp environments and does not need sunlight to thrive. If your basement has a strange sort of damp or dingy smell, you may already have mold and need to have that issue addressed promptly. If, in the process of having your basement finished, the contractor found mold, you may have already addressed the issue. Now you need to prevent the mold from returning by managing the source of the moisture.

One option for addressing the humidity levels in your basement is with a basic dehumidifier. Ensure that you purchase one that will work for the size of the space you have, and that you remember to empty the water regularly. An air exchange system that cycles the air between each floor of the home can help address air flow and temperature issues, but you may still need a dehumidifier in the basement if the upstairs air is very humid.

To achieve the proper atmosphere in your basement, you will need to make sure you address the humidity level in the air, ensure that there is no standing moisture on any surfaces, create proper air flow, and address any temperature differences that are severe enough to create moisture. There are companies you can use that will provide this thorough level of dehumidification in Minneapolis, MN. Once you’ve addressed any moisture issues, finished the space, and furnished it, you will have a comfortable and usable space for years to come.
