Are you thinking of doing a basement renovation in Victoria BC but unsure what to turn the space into? A basement is what you make of it. You could choose to use it as a standard storage place, or you could instead do something more interesting. Here are six basement spaces to consider.
If staying fit is a goal of yours, adding an exercise room into your home will make a difference. One thing that you must take into account when designing this space is whether your exercise equipment will fit, especially when taking into consideration your ceilings and the doorway’s size. The procedure will be easiest if your equipment can be taken apart to be moved into your basement. You should also measure how high your ceiling needs to be in order for you to stand or sit comfortably on your equipment.
Whether you’re a big sports fan or into all things to do with the 80s, you can design your dream space. All you need is a vision, and the right renovations contractor can help you come up with a plan that could work with your budget and space.
A basement suite is a great way to get some extra income. The trickiest part is that you’ll need to follow your municipality’s regulations when it comes to multi-family dwellings. If you’re in the Greater Victoria area, Toolbox Renovations can get you informed.
A great way to entertain friends and family, a cellar can be as simple or complex as your budget allows. You could get only cabinets and a fridge installed, or you could go full out. If your budget is limited, determine what you most want and go from there.
A home office does not have to be plain and dark--you can make the space light by using french doors and developing a design that will keep you motivated.
This is a great way to use your basement, as long as you keep in mind that any bedroom in your home may be subject to municipal regulations. For example, the window in your basement may have to be a certain height away from the floor and be large enough to provide a safe exit (egress) in the event of fire.
