Thinking about remodeling your basement? Here are some tips:

  1. Think about the future use of the room and keep it flexible to accommodate your changing needs.
  2. Maximize storage in the basement with built-ins and closet space that can be found in small areas.
  3. If possible, have an open stairwell – it keeps the lower level connected to the rest of the house.
  4. Let in the light wherever possible – windows, sliding doors, stairwells.
  5. If you can add a full bath, do so – minimally have a lower level powder room.
