Basement Renovations in Ottawa

Designing and Planning Basement Renovations
When you're renovating a basement, the key to success is having a clear and solid plan from the very beginning, before any of the work starts. Our renovation contractors will with you to plan out and design every aspect of these renovations, and there are a few things that you should consider during this process:
Parts of your basement will need to rely completely on electric light, but other areas may be near window egresses, so they'll be able to depend on natural light throughout the day. Any social parts of your finished basement should be kept near natural light sources, while other parts (like a television area) should be kept away from it.
Planning the layout of your renovated basement before you begin any of the construction will help you get the most satisfaction out of the space after the project is complete.
- If you plan to include a food storage area, you should position it so that traveling to it won't require passing in front of the television viewing area.
- If you're adding a bedroom, you should keep that space close to the perimeter of the basement so that it's close to any window egresses.
Once we begin constructing the renovations, this careful planning will pay off and ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible. Our remodeling contractors will help you create a design that is perfect for your home and family, and we always guarantee your total satisfaction with the work that we provide.
