6 High-Quality Basement Finishing Ideas for Your Home

Basements were considered the unwanted rooms in any house in Toronto. Most people had them packed with old and unwanted items in the past. That has changed, and more people are looking for high-quality basement finishing for their homes.

Many homeowners have realized the added value a well-finished basement can provide. Choosing not to remodel and utilize the basement space is a waste of space, and that is why many are looking for ideas to remodel. In the past, the options for remodeling were limited, and that is why many basements were used for storing away items.

Now, there are plenty of remodeling ideas that you can implement. As a professional renovation company, we have compiled some renovation ideas you can consider for your basement.

High-Quality Basement Finishing Ideas to Consider

1. Open Concept

A more commonly adopted style is the open concept design. In this style, the room is kept open, no walls or dividers of any kind. Many people love this style because it allows them to use the space as they wish. It is easy to change the area often and thus; the room can have multiple purposes. The open concept style is a high-quality basement finishing that is quite popular.

The best part is the concept can work on both small and large basements. Think of it as having an open canvas that allows you to mix and match styles to fit your desires.

2. Multi-purpose Design

A complete opposite to the open concept, the multi-purpose design is meant to divide the room for different purposes. You can use your basement for more than one scope. By doing this, you make it an extension of your home.

For instance, the basement can be a small library that also serves as an office and much more. You maximize the space available with this high-quality basement finishing idea.

3. Gym vs. Spa

Another popular idea is to turn your basement into a gym. It’s the perfect space for it. We can design it to look like a gym using the right construction materials. We can even go a step further and add a spa in your basement at your request. The size of the gym or spa will depend on the space you have and want to use for this purpose.

4. Theater room

We can tell you from experience there are many things involved when making a high-end theater room. You also need a big basement to make it work properly. As a professional renovation company in Toronto, we have done high-quality basement finishing projects like this and provided the full immersive experience for homeowners.

The theater room requires reclining chairs, surround sound, projection screen and more. Thus, it’s essential to have a budget to keep the cost of setting this up to a minimum. A more popular and highly affordable option is to have an open TV space as it’s cost effective and simpler to set up. However, it won’t provide the same experience as a theatre room.

5. An Extra Suite

One high-quality basement finishing idea is adding a suite in the basement. You have a professional renovation company like ours create a full guest suite. Of course, the complexity and size will depend on your budget.

You can create something as simple as a bedroom with a kitchenette. This is a great idea for families with in-laws or relatives that often visit or stay for extended periods of time. With this style, everyone gets their space and privacy.

6. Walkout Basement

Another high-quality basement finishing idea is an exit from your basement (walkout). A well-finished walkout basement will raise the value of your home in the long run when you want to sell. We can tell you from experience that this is easier to do when the basement is not submerged as in many traditional houses in Toronto.

However, it is still possible to make a walkout basement with a traditional submerged basement. Some permits and proper planning is required, but that’s why we offer our clients project management as one of our services.
