When looking for residential properties in Concord, most tenants and potential homeowners usually look to Vaughan or Thornhill due to its close proximity to these areas. Concord is a major industrial area in Ontario due to the large empty spaces to its southern end. It has roots in farming and being a postal community, and later, due to the rise of technology and urbanisation, has very much turned into a business district. It is home to multinational businesses and headquarters.

Much of its population actually live in the neighbouring areas, but that is not to say that Concord runs short of its own residential spaces. High-rises, for example, offer a great view of Ontario. Houses and homes in this community have more room to work with in terms of horizontal space, but also, vertical, in terms of basement spaces. Renovated Concord basements are in increasingly high demand as more and more residents want to be closer to their work, to be farther away from the growing populations of Vaughan and Thornhill, or to simply have a change of pace. Finished Concord basements are also the perfect way to attract new people to the area by inviting people over to enjoyable, relaxing spaces. A finished Concord basement can provide a refuge far from the cramped and claustrophobic work environments in the GTA.

Concord Basement Renovation Ideas

Think of your basement as another floor in your home, giving you more space to use for improvement and growth. Use it as a space to expand the possibilities of your interior or diversify it.

If your home has an older interior and you want to transform the basement into a contemporary space, changing the ceiling, walls and floor can do wonders, even without the other fittings that go in a basement. The shapes and colours of spaces with modern design aesthetics are usually sleek, clean and highlighted by bursts of carefully chosen colour that accentuate the neutral tones even more. Consider accessories, seating or furniture with bright colours, for example, set against a neutral, basic backdrop. Colour blocking is a rising trend in basement renovation interior design, as well. Lines are also important in these kinds of designs. Strong, visible lines – be it curved, horizontal, vertical or slanted – are usually found in the architectural details. Geometric shapes, wall art, sculpture, and even the shape of your furniture go into this as well.

You may also want to consider using modern construction materials, such as stretch ceilings. These ceilings are perfect for finished Concord basements, as they offer a wide variety of benefits by being resistant to humidity and being sound absorbent. These ceilings can also be backlit or made into a starry sky ceiling for an indoor home theatre, truly giving you the feeling of watching your favourite films and TV shows outdoors.

Lighting is equally important to the overall layout and construction of your Concord basement renovation. Recessed lighting and backlit lighting can ensure that you don’t lose any of the ceiling height. A well-lit space also gives the illusion of having more space than there actually is. Lighting can also come in more innovative and experimental forms, such as lights underneath the cabinetry to light up the bar and counter, or LED lighting around the cabinetry and underneath the counter surface.

Utilising the basement walls and basement layout to their fullest potential can further give the perception of space and openness to your underground level area. Concord basement finishes need to consider the amount of storage available to you by creating a separate storage room, helping you find the right place to put any storage furniture, or using your wall itself as storage by installing recessed cabinetry in the walls itself. All of this is to improve the storage capabilities of your basement, so you do not have to completely lose a storage space in the process of having a Concord basement renovation.

Overall, the goal is to make the basement space an inviting space, but also a liveable one. Concord basement finishes should also consider where to put the plumbing, wiring and piping, not just for the basement, but for the house as a whole. Windows, too, have to be installed according to Ontario Building Codes to ensure that the basement is not too stuffy and gets the proper ventilation it needs. Other structural aspects include paying attention to the foundations of the house and the walls of the basement. The entire space – including its existing contents, fittings and the overall structure – need to be assessed first, instead of simply measuring the area from one corner to the other.
