BASEMENT RENOVATIONS MAPLE
Maple was founded as a postal town, then as an agricultural one. Like most communities in Ontario, Maple experienced massive growth over the years and has since been an area with a lot of potential for growth, both in population and use of space. The most notable use of the massive amounts of space afforded to the residents of Maple is Canada’s Wonderland: an iconic theme park for all ages, visited by people from all over Canada. True to its name, Maple is home to this very Canadian landmark and was named after the maple trees that lined its streets.
The residential properties in Maple tend to make use of the spacious area away from the busier, urban cities around it. There are many homes with multiple storeys, and the brick-and-stone facades often indicate more modern interiors. As such, there has been an increasing need to modernise the floor underneath the house, as well. Maple basements are being used as either separate residential spaces, entertainment spaces, and for many other uses that suit the needs of each family and homeowner. By having a Maple basement renovation with Finished Basement, residents can feel rest assured in the renovation project, with the team’s years of experience and a dedication to quality and efficiency.
Maple Basement Renovation Ideas
The most common additions to basements are usually kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens, in particular, take a lot of work, as this does not only consider the appliances. It also has to take into consideration counter space, the space for other appliances like refrigerators, lighting, and the sink. Extra wiring, piping and plumbing work may be required. Basement bathrooms and washrooms, on the other hand, can take up as much space as you want. You may only have a small, enclosed space, which demands an innovative and space-saving bathroom layout, or a larger space that can fit an indoor spa and sauna.
You may also want to convert the basement into a games and entertainment room. It can be the perfect space to lie back, relax and gather friends and family to enjoy your favourite movie, play your favourite games, or otherwise entertain them. You may opt for a smaller bar counter space instead of a full kitchen. A renovated ceiling could make it seem as if you’re watching a movie under a starry night sky in the comforts of your finished Maple basement.
Some homeowners have varying ideas for the use of this basement space. It can be another area of residence, with a bedroom and with all living amenities an apartment would have. Others may want to include a home gym, for example. It can also be a home office, away from the distractions of the home, or it may be renovated and finished to have a dedicated storage space, and even more storage with recessed cabinetry and shelving.
Maple Basement Renovation Upkeep
Most Maple basements are more expansive than you may think. Initial measurements – and, alongside them, initial quotes – can be misguided and can even under- or over-estimate the space available to you. Every basement is different, every home is unique, and every project aims to build something new from an existing area. No matter the amount of space available, however, there are a near-infinite amount of possibilities that you can do with your Maple basement renovation project.
On one hand, this is extremely exciting for many, and can even provide extra income for some, if they choose to rent the underground space. On the other hand, having a renovated and finished basement space does not entirely remove the need to manage the basement space.
While every basement is distinct, they also share common qualities: they are underground, do not get a lot of light, may have limited circulation and may be a breeding ground for microorganisms that thrive in these conditions. Basements are also typically spaces reserved for piping, wiring and plumbing that homeowners don’t want to be exposed anywhere in the house, or otherwise used as a storage space. This can discourage people from going into an unfinished basement because the area can be dark, damp and unpleasant to clean. As a result, issues can arise, such as cracked foundations or other persisting problems that are difficult to pinpoint in a seemingly cramped space.
Maple basement renovations draw attention to these lingering basement issues and may even help fix them permanently. Basement renovations open up space and highlight the areas that need improvements before more aesthetic and functional choices could be made to liven up the space.
Homeowners and basement renovators have to be careful of the growth of mold, mildew and fungi in the basement, even after Maple basement finishes. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to increase or contribute to the humidity in an enclosed, typically dark space. The right window sizes and scope can help alleviate these concerns, as well as proper attention and maintenance. Pipes can also freeze in the basement, specifically in the winter, and for this, residents need to provide enough circulation in the basement itself by opening doors, windows and cabinetry. Additionally, some basements may have lower ceilings, resulting in louder noises. Unwanted noises could be minimized with the right ceiling materials and overall basement design that considers these factors.
