Basements are no longer just disregarded storage spaces. Homeowners want to utilize the room and turn it into a productive space. There are many ways to turn a basement into something fun and usable. At Lavergne Home Improvements and Renovations in Ottawa, we have worked on several basement renovation projects over the years and understand what clients need.
Basement Home Improvements in Ottawa – What We Do
Basements are often underutilized and have a lot of potential. However, they also need to be handled carefully. Most of this room is under the ground and has limited natural lighting. The space can easily become gloomy and uncomfortable, especially if you live in colder climates. We take great care to make sure the basements we design are comfortable and look great. Here’s a look at what we do:
- Plan Based on Client Requirements – Different clients want to use the basement for different purposes. Some want to convert it to an entertainment room, some want an additional guest room or bedroom, while others want to make it a man cave. Regardless of what you need, we can help. We take all of your preferences into account during planning.
- Waterproofing – No one wants a damp and cold basement. This room is most vulnerable to leaks and flooding because of things like poor drainage, hydrostatic pressure from the soil around, and other such factors. Great waterproofing is always the first step in a basement renovation project.
- Lighting – Basements are often dark and dim because they have relatively small windows that let in natural light. Good lighting is important for a great basement atmosphere. Bright lights will ensure the space is cheerful, safe, and comfortable. We install a combination of soft and focused light to ensure your basement is ready for regular use.
- Design – The design of the basement should be planned based on the basement architecture and environment. It is important to ensure the fixtures are installed in the right locations and the area looks bright. We choose everything from wall colors to furniture design carefully to ensure it looks welcoming.
