The basements in new homes aren’t just made to become storage spaces anymore but have the potential to become something more. Having a finished basement can create the perfect atmosphere for additional living space. It can increase the return on investment of the house since the area can be used for various purposes, depending on what kind of space the homeowner wants.
A good idea for transforming your basement space is a game room or entertainment den to minimize the noise level in the higher floors. Natural insulation is provided by the earth, which makes the basement cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This makes the basement an ideal space for spending a lot of time in. Another idea is to use it as a laundry room to free up space above the basement for something else.
The earthy tones of stained basement floors give the space a natural, yet sophisticated-looking design. They can create warm-looking spaces to upgrade the room into a living space. Your floor can become a striking feature of the room, which will automatically make the room more inviting.
Covering up concrete in the basement using a carpet can be a bad idea, especially in humid areas, where moisture can accumulate under the carpet. This may not be visible, but it is enough to promote mold growth. Staining and sealing basement floors reduce the moisture content that may add to the formation of mold and other contaminants, which can become a source of allergens.
Staining concrete can hide minor cracks that are not caused by structural problems and can create a vintage feel. Small cracks can be left exposed, if desired, since they can add a texture and rustic charm.
