Looking for more space in your home? If so, you’re not alone. Many homeowners would like more space for additional living areas, extra storage, or a new spot to decorate. A basement can provide valuable space, but renovations can be expensive. Get ready to make use of your basement by learning how to budget for a basement development.
Develop a Realistic Budget with a Calgary Contractor
Begin the process of transforming your basement by developing a realistic budget. Figure out what you can afford to spend, then talk with a Calgary contractor about renovation options. They can help you determine what’s realistic with your available funds.
Set Aside Additional Funds for Basement Development
Renovation projects often meet with unexpected expenses. Once construction begins, the Calgary contractor may discover moisture problems, faulty wiring, or other issues that you weren’t aware of. Give your budget a cushion to cover these additional costs so that you can complete the renovations within your budget.
Reduce Costs for a Custom Renovation
There are many ways to enjoy the benefits of a custom renovation in your basement without the hefty price tag. Consider renovating a section of the basement instead of the whole area. Or partially finish the basement but leave certain things unfinished. For example, you can create an industrial-style living room without breaking the bank by leaving the ceiling exposed, limiting the use of drywall, and using white to give the illusion of additional height and light.
Establish Priorities for Basement Renovations
An unlimited budget is a luxury most homeowners don’t have for finishing a basement. Make the most of your custom renovation budget by determining your top priorities. Focus resources on the things that matter to you and spend less on the areas that don’t.
