Etobicoke was built to be the very picture of suburbia. While Toronto saw a massive growth in high-rises, urban developments and ultra-modern businesses, Etobicoke was and has always been a place that people can comfortably call home. Throughout the years, Etobicoke has been combined with the Greater Toronto Area and has seen a massive growth in urbanisation and population. Growth shows in the changing architecture of homes and houses and the amount of industrial areas in and around Etobicoke. Etobicoke feels more and more like a bridge between metropolitan lifestyles and quieter, calmer suburbia.

Some residents have welcomed these changes and decided to stay; others seek to move either into the city or further away from it. However, moving away comes with its own difficulties. It may require selling a home, and subsequently buying or renting a new one. Moving to another area also demands some time for adjustment. More and more people are realizing that moving down to basements is better than moving away. A finished Etobicoke basement can address your need for a change of pace, a new space or a bigger living area.

Etobicoke Basements

Residents of the Etobicoke area may find initial difficulties to moving down to their own basements. Etobicoke is a low-lying area which can cause significant basement flooding in the rainier months and during snowmelts in the spring. Basements have to be sealed properly and thusly maintained, and in older houses, this might be difficult to do, especially since basements are often one of the most neglected floors in a household. They are often used for storage, or simply an area used to house heating, plumbing and household necessities. During floods, these objects and fittings can be damaged, along with the basement itself, which sustains water damage over time. Older structures may also have cracked foundations, as well as persisting problems relating to wiring, piping and plumbing that are only temporarily addressed.

At the moment, the number of living spaces are increasing in demand as the GTA continues to expand and grow. This demand is mostly driven by a need to accommodate prospective tenants or a growing family. Tenants can come as newcomers, long-term residents looking to move into a new place, or students studying at University of Guelph-Humber, Humber College and Albion College. These tenants can come from all walks of life and have budgets of their own, but all are looking to reside in a liveable space that covers all their needs. Usually, most residential basements should aim to have most of the living amenities, comforts and necessities of a home. Kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms are one of the most important elements of a renovated residential basement. Bathrooms can be fully renovated or partly renovated to include indoor spas and space-saving layouts.

Additionally, basements can also be used as entertainment areas for the family and for guests to enjoy. This can entail an indoor home theatre or games room. The ceiling can be sound proofed to ensure that the residents of the house above ground are not disturbed. Some homeowners may even want to include a gym in their basement or increase its storage capabilities as well.
