A great addition to any home is a finished basement. The best way to crown your basement remodeling is to ensure you’ve done the following correctly.
- Basement lighting
If you’re doing a basement finishing, the right lighting can do wonders to your space. With the help of a professional, you’ll be able to determine the type of light that suits your needs. Here are the three types of lighting you can consider for your basement;
- Ambient lighting
If you are going for lighting that lights your entire space, then this is the one to go for. It is usually achieved by the use of recessed lights
- Task lighting
This is more budget-friendly lighting that is an alternative to recessed lights. Common examples are pendant lights, chandeliers, and hanging fixture lights
- Indirect lighting
This type is all about setting a mood, examples are fixture lights hanging over a piece of art or rope lights behind a bar or inside a shelving unit.
- Heating your basement
To keep a finished basement warm, there are many options you can consider for heating your basement, for example, you can extend your existing HVAC system, adding a fireplace which can either be ventless or gas, a radiant heater or space heaters in case you’re going for a budget-friendly option. But first, ensure to consult an experienced heating contract.
The basement is one place in a house that is prone to mold, moisture, and humidity. To help with these problems, proper ventilation is key. Natural ventilation is a great option for reducing moisture while conserving energy, another option is the installation of exhaust fans. A dehumidifier is also an additional option to keep the basement adequately ventilated.
