Finishing a basement can be one of the best ways to improve property value as well as create usable space for many applications. Using the space for a game room for children and adults is the most common. In-law suites or full lower level apartments are popular as well. There are many different ways to design and finish a basement. Depending on your specific wants and needs, changes can be made to the structure to accommodate the new design so you can achieve the finished product you are looking for. By knowing what the space will be used for, we design rooms, move walls or create openings to allow the rooms to flow properly. We can also compartmentalize the area as to create more privacy for bedrooms, offices, living areas and bathrooms, etc. The proper design is very important to achieving your ultimate goals. It’s common to have a basement finished the way the original builder left the structure and wall layout. Whereas this can sometimes be less expensive, you do not always end up with the finished product you are seeking. You are not always given a choice on how our upstairs living areas are finished when you buy a home. So, when we finish your basement for you it is important to have the project done to your specifications. This can be an excellent way to personalize your living area.

Building bars in basements is a very common practice. This is usually a part of the project that gives the personal style that many people seek. The bar can be designed to fit your personal needs and budget. It is common to have bars look like bars and act like kitchens. By concealing microwaves and trash cans inside of the cabinetry we create the bar look and a functional kitchenette. Cabinet style and wood species is very important in how a bar will look when it’s finished. Countertops play a large part in the look of the finished product, as well. Many bars finish with granite on the back bar and wood with a rolled bar rail on the front bar. The wood front bar is not as durable as granite, but it creates a pub style feel. Light fixtures, plumbing fixtures and hardware can have a positive impact on how the finished bar will look, also. Oil rubbed bronze is very popular right now and it gives and old world look to your bar. We have taken useless hallways and closets and turned them into beautiful bars for many satisfied customers.
