Basement Finish | Longmont CO
Here’s some ideas for your basement: we often start by drawing lines for the unfinished area, also known as Storage room or Mechanical. Then we lay out partitions for rooms as needed, but keep in mind that the windows add natural light and egress where needed, so give this priority for bright natural light which is a premium in a basement. Then choose “focal points” for rooms with specific function, for example extra lighting or built-in cabinetry, also any furniture arrangements preferred.
Lighted Niche | Longmont CO
There is a variety of techniques for these which can make your space more interesting and useful. If you need to display special art or prints, etc., consider adding extra lighting here. Most of our clients enjoy adding niches in long basement walls; some say the bigger, the better here.
Basement Entrance | Longmont CO
Consider options here for your specific needs or for children’s space, regarding openness & quick accessibility, or separation for privacy or sound attenuation. Often we will open up the stairwell where possible to bring the spaces (& family) together.
TV Media Room | Longmont CO
Basements & theater rooms go together. Normally your TV screen works better away from the windows, making the best contrast for viewing movies, etc. Also, we are doing a lost of surround sound setups, which can be made fairly simple using a few speaker locations. This makes the basement more fun for most.
Library or Office | Longmont CO
There are options for these too, computer desks & file storage, craft tables, maybe storage for books, music, or collectables. A built-in sewing room is also a popular option.
Wet bar or Wine room | Longmont CO
Wet bars are fun for all, refreshing & attractive, fun to create and excellent for resale value. Consider a bar that may have a work space with bar sink or add seating with barstools or bistro setup. Uniqueness is a good key here for fun, “No two wet bars the same”. Accessories for these may include a mini refrigerator or wine coolers.
Fireplace | Longmont CO
Many basements need a secondary heat source. A gas log fireplace may be the best option since they produce instant heat as well as the bonus of ambience to the family room. There are other options which work well here, but a cozy fireplace can add a nice focal point for your living space.
