Basement Remodeling – Westchester Home Improvement
Basement remodeling or finishing is one of the quickest ways to add a new room to your home without the higher expense of building a room addition. Most basements are unfinished and only used for storage on all things forgotten. Call Westchester Home Improvement for remodeling ideas.
Basement finishing adds quality living space to your home without losing valuable square feet from the rest of your property. When you’re pressed for room, there’s no better way to expand your home. Basements already have the foundation for a great remodel.

Basement Window & Door Installation
Basements are often stuffy and feel closed in. Ventilation is important for basements in order to make them a livable area. Basement windows and doors play a big part in ventilation; just because they may not let much usable light in, they provide another valuable service.
Basement windows and doors can help circulate air, and provide a portal for the entrance in and exit out of air that is being circulated. Without this ventilation, many people would find their basements depressing and confining, and their use would be inadequate.
Advantages of adding basement windows and doors to your remodel:
- Adds value to home
- Proper ventilation
- Custom designed
Because of their function, there are certain specifications that must be met when selecting basement windows and doors. For one, basement windows are not like the other windows in your home, so do not be fooled into thinking you can just get the same windows for every space in your home.
Flooring Ideas for Basements
Flooring is one of the most important but often overlooked aspects of a basement. Usually relegated to naked concrete and nothing more, the floors can actually be modified to accommodate your lifestyle. The only thing you need to concern yourself with is deciding what type of flooring you should use for the basement.
Types of basement flooring:
- Ceramic – A great alternative to concrete, ceramic tile isn’t an option for basements that see a lot of hard, heavy stuff hauled to and from it on a regular basis. It’s made for enjoyment and sheer looks.
- Hardwood Laminate – Ideal flooring for basements that have been converted into another floor of the house. More often than not, this means that instead of a storage space, the basement has been turned into a game room, function room or library.
- Carpeting – This is the easiest way to spruce up a basement. Thick carpeting is not a good idea if the basement usually sees people hauling and dragging heavy objects across its surface all the time, but great for spending cozy moments with loved ones.
