If your basement is not a cold concrete abyss filled with boxes it is typically not finished to the same level as the main level of the home. As your family grows and more space is needed or you are simply seeking to add equity to your home it may be time to focus on the basement. Your basement may have the potential to become a favorite retreat and the most popular place in the home. In the photo above you can see a redefined space that has been brought to life using modern materials and design while incorporating the existing fireplace with the addition of an efficient gas fire. The concrete was stained and finished to provide a modern look and a low maintenance flooring option. Updated lighting and faux beams were added to add contrast, elegance as well as break up this large space.
At Crossbeam Builders, we want your basement remodel to be an efficient and functional use of space that is often overlooked or an afterthought for the original structure. Turning dead space into living space can sometimes require structural ingenuity and design elements to make space come alive as you can see in the next photo.
The original wall in the photo above was removed and replaced with a beam that still required a column. To dress up the column it was covered with a cherry wood finish trim. The custom stainless railing was designed to accent and integrate into the space to give the room a more open feel. The luxury vinyl planking on the floor provides an economical and durable option for flooring. And the picture immediately following this section shows the room from a different perspective.
In the pictures that follow, you will find another classic basement challenge. A basement bathroom remodeling project. In the first, you will see a typical 5’x8’ bathroom layout that was transformed from a dingy underutilized bath to a bright and beautiful modern space. In the second you will notice the use of a traditional tub, toilet and vanity layout that is common in a tight basement space that is brought to life with creative use of tile and design.
