home remodels

It’s nearly summer, and remodel season is in full swing. When it comes to home remodels, people often think of redoing the kitchen or a bathroom or maybe even building an addition. But what about finishing your basement? Our team at Corriveau Contracting can turn your dark and dreary basement into the room in your house that you never want to leave. But what kind of space do you want to transform your basement into?

Here are a few ideas to inspire you while you think about home remodels and how to finish your basement.


Extra Bedroom

There are many reasons why you might want an extra bedroom in your home. Kids get older and want their own rooms. Relatives and friends come to stay. If you want your basement room to be multifunctional, you can build beds or bunk beds into the wall. Then you will still have most of your basement to turn into something else plus a fun place for the kids to sleep when they have friends over or they need to give up their room for a guest.


Second Living Room

Having one family room is great, but what about two? Sometimes your family just needs more than one room to relax in. As much as you love spending time with your entire family, it’s still nice to have more than one space. the whole family can’t agree on what movie to watch? Pick two and send some down to the basement. One of the kids having some friends over and they want a place to hang out? Down to the basement they go.


Home Theater

TVs are pretty fancy these days, and with so many things that you can watch from home, many people are installing home theater setups. Basements are great for home theaters because there is not as much light that you need to block out. They are also usually a regular shape which makes it easy to position speakers for surround sound.


Basement Bar

Sometimes you need a place the adults can hang out. And where better to do it than a basement bar? You can go as simple or as fancy as you like, depending on you like to prepare your drinks. Put in shelves, lighting, a bar, and a bar sink, and impress your friends when you display your cocktail mixing skills. Bring your basement a step up from the place you keep your beer fridge.
