Sometimes we like to look at the mega-luxury home listings. It’s fun to imagine what your house would look like if you had practically unlimited funds to spend on it. One feature recently caught our eye: the basement renovation on a Michigan mansion included a full kitchen, one and a half bedrooms and a second laundry room. That is a serious finished basement, with lots of high end features and amenities.
While most people who are contemplating a Boston basement renovation aren’t in a position to pour that type of cash into the endeavor, there’s no doubt that finished basements are becoming more and more luxurious spaces. Whether you’re creating a home office, private theater, a library/study, or even a mini-apartment in your basement, you know have increasingly upscale options for flooring, lighting, and other basement finishing essentials. Basements are no longer places where homeowners are willing to make do; instead, the projects we’ve been working on are spaces anyone would be proud to show off.
What makes a basement renovation impressive? There are several key elements common to high end finished basements. Smart lighting is a big one; enhancing any available natural light with carefully chosen fixtures is a critical component of your renovation. Your Boston basement finishing company will work closely with you to design a basement layout that meets your family’s needs in the most beautiful way possible.
Some features of a luxury finished basement aren’t immediately apparent to the eye, but they make enjoying the renovated space much nicer. Sound proofing, wi fi connectivity and other tech features all have a role in making your basement truly impressive.
