Want your basement remodel to look like this?

One major reason why some real estate agents/homeowners can’t sell off some properties is because of the bad state of the basements of the properties.

While the other parts of the house might be in perfect shape;  there is every possibility that the basement might be undergoing some structural  anomalies, such as exuding mold odor and damp air, deteriorating woods, tiles, or carpets, stained, cracked and peeling walls, water seepage, and leakages, and other basement problems.

No matter how good looking the other parts of the home may look, once you have a deteriorating basement, it scares away potential home buyers. This is why most homeowners try to renovate their basements before putting up their homes for sale.

If your basement is in this damp and unsavory state, there is no cause for alarm as there are plans you can put in place to turn your basement into a delight, either for your personal use or for your potential buyers.

Plans To Remodel Your Basement

Figure out what type of basement you have. The first step to take is to find out the type of basement construction you have in your home. There are three basic types of basement constructions namely: Masonry wall, Poured Concrete, and Precast panels.

Masonry wall

These types of basements walls are constructed with cinder blocks held together with cement or lime mortar.

Poured Concrete

This is the most preferred and strongest basement construction of all. This is constructed by pouring footing as the foundation of the basement, after which the poured concrete is held in place by forms to enable quick drying.

Precast Panels

These types of basement walls are constructed by making concrete into moveable forms which can be transported from place to another for final fittings.

Knowing your basement walls will help you figure out the problems of the basement, the causes, and how to rectify it.

Outline the changes you want in your basement

The walls are basically the topmost problems of basements, and once that has been figured out, the next thing is to outline the changes you want in your basements. This should cover electric outlets, lightings, dust collection, ventilation, flooring, and ceilings.

Draw a basement remodel plan

If you want to DIY the plans for the new basement, you can do that. All you need to do is get the aggregate measurements of the initial basement space, then start allocating the changes.

You start by drawing the walls, then you add the furniture, insert the electrical switches and outlets, don’t forget the plumbing attachments such as toilet, sink and jacuzzi, you can add electronic gadgets. Just add anything you want to your basement plan.

If you don’t want to go through that stress, you can hire the services of a basement planner.

Contact a professional basement remodeling company 

This is the point where all your changes are brought to life.  it is not advisable that you try to renovate your basement yourself. Rather, hand the job over to professionals, and give them your plan to work with.

Trying to remodel your basement yourself can be disastrous as there are so many intricacies attached to it that you can’t pull through all by yourself, such as walls removal, mold removal, windows and door installation, electric workings, and plumbing renovations.

So, you need to hire the services of experienced personnel to get these jobs done.

10 WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR HOME VALUE THIS YEAR USING PAINT Improving the appearance of your home is one of the easiest ways to increase its value on the market and make it more appealing. Potential buyers will mostly judge your building on face value and they will make a decision based on how it looks to them. One of the best ways to do this is by using paint. Painting is a relatively cheap way to add value to your home and here are 10 ways you can do just that. • Repaint Your External Walls The exterior of your home is the first thing people see when they look at it. Broken surfaces and faded paint will make your house look much older than it really is. Give it a facelift by repainting the surface in a color that blends well with the surrounding landscape and your house will look as good as new. • Add some color to your bathroom A lot of people like to spend time in the bathroom and it is often one of the first places buyers check out in a home they are looking to buy. Paint the bathroom in bright colors that breathe new life into the place, glaze your tub to make it sparkle again and touch up the floor if necessary. • Paint your cabinets Brushing up the cabinets in your kitchen, basement and other places is a good way to make everything look new without replacing it. • Paint the areas around your home The value of your home depends on the area in which it is sitting. A well-painted house in a drab, dusty neighborhood looks both odd and out of place and is unlikely to make anyone pay more for it. Paint the curbs and walls close to you in cool well-blended colors to make it even more beautiful • Spray your doors The entrance to your home makes a lasting first impression. It is cheaper to spray your front door to make it stand out than replacing it entirely. A well-painted door could make all the difference to a potential buyer • Splash some paint on your living room The living room is a very important space in your home. It is usually the first room anyone comes into so painting every surface in matching colors can get your house some more money on the market. • Give your vinyl sliding a makeover Your vinyl sliding is an important part of the exterior of your home. Replacing it entirely might be out of the question depending on your budget but you can apply the right color of paint to make it look a lot better along with the rest of your building. • Apply an extra coat on all internal walls Repaint the walls in all rooms within your house to make it more presentable. A dull interior completely negates your bright exterior and will leave your buyers disappointed. • Repaint your ceilings where possible It is easy to forget that upper surfaces too need to be painted. Throw a dash of paint on your ceiling surfaces to make sure that it all looks tidy. Most of the time, a mixture of cream and white along with shades of other colors bring the best out of your home. Finding this balance will improve the aesthetic and financial value of your home.
