Want to install a projection room in the basement of your home?

In Edmonton, basements are often used as storage rooms for all the stuff we no longer use. Certain people, however, understand that their basements have a lot of potential and can be put to better use. For example, you can transform it into an extra bedroom, a gym, a game room or even a home theatre. The possibilities are practically endless and only limited to your imagination!

If you’re unsure which option you should choose, Smart Reno’s recommended experts can help. They can offer advice on the best way to renovate your basement according to your needs. Our main goal is to make sure your project is a total success.

Things to consider for basement renovations in Edmonton

There are many options for basement renovation. If the job is well thought out and properly executed, a project of this size can significantly increase your property value. In order to have a job well done, however, it's important to choose the right person to guide you.

Smart Reno has already partnered on many projects and has recommended several basement renovation experts in Edmonton. The feedback we get from customers continues to validate the work we’ve been doing. To give you some ideas, here are four things to consider before planning your basement renovation.

Check ceiling height

In many houses, water pipes and ducts take up a decent amount of space in the ceiling. It’s therefore important, especially if you’re considering a floor renovation, to measure the height and plan your basement with the available space taken into account.

Check ground leveling

Before buying new furniture or settling on an idea, it’s important to make sure the floor is level. If this is not the case, have an expert fix the issue.

Check the moisture level

Humidity level should be checked before starting a renovation. You wouldn’t want to plan a bedroom if the space is poorly insulated. You might prefer to use the space for something else or to improve the insulation before investing in renovations.

Provide enough lighting

Home basements are often quite dark and Edmonton houses are no exception. Unless you can install windows, it’s important to provide enough lighting so the room is pleasant to live in and to avoid it not being used often.
