Some things to consider before renovating your basement
Renovating a basement can be quite different compared to renovating other rooms in your house :
Do you have sufficient height. Remember that water and heating pipes will lower the available height. In addition, installing the floor will also take away a few inches.
Conceal joists and pipes. One option is to install a suspended ceiling, which will conceal and soundproof the basement a little. Otherwise you have to think how to hide all these elements by installing drywall and paint.
If the ground floor is not leveled or humid, you should resolve the problem before installing a floor too close to the ground. If you opt for plywood, leave a space between it and the concrete to facilitate air circulation.
You must think about the type of lighting to be installed, considering the fact that daylight in basements is usually more limited.
