Not so long ago the basement was ignored – it was where we deposited the things we didn’t know what to do with, and where odd pieces of furniture accumulated over time. The idea of a basement being a functional room was never considered.

Today, it’s a different story – basements have become part of our living space in their own right. As much thought goes into their decoration as in other parts of the house; they offer extra storage space and can be turned into useful, pleasant rooms, often designed with a special purpose in mind, where all the family can get together.

What’s more, finishing the basement is a good investment that increases the value of your home as well as giving you many more square feet of living space.
