These days a basement can be anything – a gym, bedroom, home office, family, or anything else you wish. To go about renovating your basement you must begin with a plan. Unlike other rooms, the home basement is where the mechanical systems, plumbing and electrical wiring are often found. It is a good idea to get basement professionals for the job. The things you must consider are your ceiling, lighting, storage, flooring, trim and moulding. If you have a low ceiling (less than eight ft.) you can finish it with painted sheetrock. Just make sure that you have access panels to your pipes, wires and plumbing. If you have a tall ceiling (more than eight ft.) you can consider a beautiful suspended ceiling that will hang over the existing ceiling and provide beautiful covering in a range of colors and designed strips.
