5 Basement Remodel Before & Afters
If your favorite part of watching HGTV’s Fixer Upper was waiting for the final reveal when Chip and Joanna would roll aside the gigantic-sized “Before” shot of the house to expose the stark contrast of the newly renovated home, then you’ll love to see how we’ve transformed some of these basements from drab to fab! Check out these before and after shots for inspiration.
We had a lot of space to work with in this basement–2,641 sq. ft. to be exact. We finished approximately 2,300 sq. ft. of that space into three-bedroom, two-bath apartment with its own kitchen, laundry, and family room. The bigger windows give the space lots of light, and we still left the homeowner with a good-sized unfinished storage room.
This spacious walk-out, though not quite as large as the basement above, still had room for a large rec room with game area and wet bar, a bedroom with adjacent sitting area, and a 3/4 bathroom. It’s way more inviting for entertaining and relaxing now than it was before!
You’d be amazed by what we can fit into 825 sq. ft. This basement went from a dreary workout area to 15’x12′ rec room, a bedroom and bathroom, and a theater room with adjacent storage.
And, speaking of theaters, how about this awesome transformation? Not only is this theater beautiful on the outside, but there are many unseen features that make it an ideal viewing space–namely several types of insulation in the walls and ceiling, and state-of-the art wiring. Pop some corn, pass the drinks, and settle in for an evening of at-home entertainment!
White cabinetry and EVP flooring were the right choice to transform this basement. We used 930 sq. ft. to best advantage by finishing two bedrooms, a large rec room with a wet bar, and a 3/4 bath.
