Many of us have unused and unfinished spaces in our home. Most often it is the basement. It’s time to rediscover your home’s potential and the possibilities for the basement are endless. We are seeing all kinds of interior home renovations in Montana. Everything from playrooms to man caves, now is the time to create a space that will last a lifetime.
In 2019, the hottest trends for basements are as follows:
1. Maintaining color schemes used throughout the home.
In a previous article, we discussed the rich jewel tones and metallics that are coming into the kitchen. The basement is no exception. In 2019, you will see these colors come into the basement as well. With small kitchenettes or wet bars in the basement, the colors from the kitchens are flowing into the basement areas creating an even flow though out the home.
2. Utilization of spaces to create real solutions.
There are many ways to utilize the space of the basement. A hot trend for 2019 is to bring the open floor plan to the basement. An open floor plan basement is very desirable for a number of reasons. This creates a space for entertaining lots of guests or provides enough space for parents to enjoy time with the children while completing other tasks.
3. Guest rooms
Guest rooms are another great way to utilize the space of a basement. Adding a guest room provides private spaces for frequent guests. Providing an addon bathroom gives guests all they need while staying with you. Another trend is to rent out areas of your home. Having a private guest room with bath is a great rental feature if this is what you are looking for.
4. Home theaters
Private viewing in a home theaters in Montana provides great opportunities to enjoy your favorite movies. Installing theater seating gives the home theater a movie theater feel with luxury seating. Sit back and enjoy the show with your favorite beverage and of course, popcorn.
5. Custom storage areas
Custom storage creates spaces that allow you to store all of your precious memories and decorations in a climate-controlled environment. From food storage to custom gun vaults the possibilities of what you can store are endless.
6. Man caves or craft rooms
Man caves or craft rooms are another great option for providing some private spaces where creativity can flow. Most often used as a retreat space from the daily grind of life, these spaces allow one to center and recharge. They are a highly popular feature in basement finishes and remodels and don’t seem to be leaving any time soon.
7. Modern flooring
Flooring such as tile or rapid lock flooring are hot trends for basements. This is because they are moisture proof and look like wood flooring. Installing this kind of flooring will eliminate the worry of a potential leak. You can even add radiant flooring to keep heat in the floor and eliminate the cool feel from the floor.
The costs for each of these trends vary and are only subject to the amount of customization of the project. With a project of this magnitude you will want to make sure you have a general contractor involved, as finishing the basement can include various trades that require specialized licenses such as plumbing and HVAC. Working with a general contractor will also save you time, money, and headache.
