Hello everyone,

I am getting a contractor to finish my basement.

I would appreciate useful features, ideas, photographs or anything special you did in your basement.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Basment finishing ideas

What do you plan to use it for (living space, media room, office, workshop, etc.)? Is it a walkout basement or underground? How large is it? How much headroom do you have? Does it stay reliably dry? How will you heat it?

You'll find that (unless you have an unlimited budget), what you can do will depend largely on existing obstructions and support columns, the placement of windows, doors, stairway, plumbing, and mechanicals, and the building code in effect. But the main design factor will be your budget.

Find the link from My Page and locate the basement file. Many of the photos have information provided below them. Ours was DIY but may give ideas. Good luck.
