Have the Perfect Basement

At I strive to be your one stop shop when it comes to all things Basement design. There's lots to know when it comes to designing your basement. Simply doing a search for basement pictures won’t cut it.

Photos are great for getting ideas, and deciding on finishes or looks. However, pictures won’t help when it comes to the actual layout of the space.

How do you make your ideas work within the confines of your available space? 

This is something YOU need to know - even more so if you’re hiring a contractor. Many contractors don't finish a lot of basements. Chances are they'll be looking to you for design cues.

Thoroughly planning the basement's layout prior to any work being done can save you from making costly mistakes - both in time and money. For starters, just imagine your disgust at erecting a wall only to find out that after it was constructed—you didn’t like it.  Know too, that these kind of mistakes can pile up from not doing the necessary planning, or having the experience to do the necessary planning. Why not make it easy on yourself and get some expert help?  I'm happy to lend a hand.
