Riverside Basement Remodeling: From Basement To Bedroom

Many families are realizing that Riverside home remodeling is a better financial move than buying an entirely new home. A simple way to add more space to your home is through a Riverside Basement Remodeling project. Your basement does not have to be a dungeon for storage and lost items. You can renovate that dark, damp space into a warm, live-able guest bedroom, family room, or bedroom for your kids.

The first thing you’ll want to do is outline your budget and your needs. Will the entire basement be converted into a bedroom? Or will only part of it be sectioned of into the new room. Do you also want to install a bathroom down there? Can you do the building and wiring by yourself?

Walls will be the first step toward finishing your brand new bedroom. Most basements are just walled in by the foundation. This makes it inhabitable, because it will be cold, dark, and damp. Therefore, start putting up walls --or find a contractor to do it for you. You’ll then probably want to paint them a very light color, since any dark color will make the already dark basement even darker.

Look up! Do you see exposed plumbing and wiring? Not only is this unsightly, but it could be a potential hazard to your occupant. You’ll want to install some kind of ceiling to hide it away. Consider sound proof ceiling tiles if this room is for your noisy teenager. While doing the ceiling, you’ll probably want to start on the lighting.

After setting your floor, all that’s left is furnishing the place. Many of these steps can be completed on your own. However, you must realize that this Riverside home remodeling project is going to take a lot of time and a lot of resources --consult a professional if you’re not up for it!
