Basement Finishing Design
Before you begin your New jersey basement finishing project, it’s important to make sure that you have a clear design and layout in order for the project to be successful. Before any of the work begins, you’ll want to have the layout and design decided on, and here are a few of the things you’ll want to consider:
The lighting, both natural and electric, of any space you’re designing effects the way that it will be used and how comfortable it can be. So, for instance, you’ll want to leave the television area away from any natural light sources, but keep any more social areas closer to natural light.
Planning the layout of your finished basement before you begin any construction will help you get the most satisfaction out of the space once it’s complete.
- If you plan to include a food storage area, put it in an area that people won’t have to walk in front of the television area to get to.
- If you’re adding a bedroom, keep that space nearer to the perimeter of the basement so that it’s close to any window egresses.
