Finishing your basement is one of the smartest upgrades for your property. It increases your house value and expands living space at the same time.
Finishing a basement is a fruitful investment. You can transform it into that extra space you need for a guest bedroom, larger family room, home office, or simply an apartment to rent out. Think of this transformation as an opportunity to finally have the dream house you have always wanted.
Now you can run your business out of your home office, rent out a legal second suite, or teach yoga in your very own at-home studio! For more ideas, check out our previous basement finishing projects.
Basement Finishing Ideas
With the basement finishing ideas available right now, designing your dream basement is an exciting process. You get to create a completely new space whether you are remodeling your basement or starting from scratch. Some basement makeover options include:
Finished Basement as Multifunctional Space
We can help you create one space where you can entertain your guests, enjoy a glass of red wine and a good book near the fireplace, or even accommodate guests on a fold-out couch or murphy bed if they need to stay over.
Finished Basement Office
If you work from home, you certainly need a quiet, organised area that you can use as an office. The wonderful thing about an office basement is that it can be finished exactly to meet your business needs. Your basement office can have a boardroom, media room, or a studio for video presentations.
Finished Basement Studio
Do you enjoy organising art or craft masterclasses, teach kids music, or offer yoga classes? Need a space for sewing, felting, knitting workshops? We can create a great layout for your studio so that you maximise on the basement space you have.
Finished Basement as a Legal Second Suite
Adding a second suite in your basement can be a great business venture. You can rent out your finished basement as long as all elements follow the Ontario safety and building codes. With Harmony Basements, you do not have to worry because our work always aligns with safety requirements.
Finished Basement as a Personal Gym
Finishing your basement into an at-home gym is a practical way to make use of it. You do not have to share your gym equipment with others and you can work out from the comfort of your own home. Plus, you will no longer need to pay for a gym membership. For these reasons, finishing a basement into a gym is always advantageous.
Basement Finishing Costs
Basement finishing fees will depend on the basement’s original condition, finishes, and design elements of your choice. The total costs usually range between $30,000 to $100,000. However, with the right financing program, your monthly payment can be as low as $300 per month. So if you are on a tight budget, we will do our best to accommodate you.
