Finishing a Basement
Maximize the Space You Already Have
Ah, the basement. For many homeowners, it’s that sprawling, cob-web infested medieval dungeon lurking just beneath the surface of an otherwise cozy and habitable home.
If the thought of your basement calls to mind images from a 1920s Bela Lugosi film, or even if you just find yourself casually referring to it as “the cellar,” perhaps it’s time to seriously consider providing this room with a five-star makeover.
