BASEMENT RENOVATIONS NORTH YORK
North York is known for being a multicultural hub. The region lies on either side of Yonge Street and beyond it and has multiple shopping centres, cultural centres, restaurants and other metropolitan amenities of downtown Toronto and without downtown’s cramped streets. Being a part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), uptown is accessible by both public and private transportation, and has its fair share of must-see attractions and popular retail attractions, such as Yorkdale Shopping Centre, the Ontario Science Centre, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, Mel Lastman Square, and so much more. Major universities like York University, Glendon College and Seneca College are also located in this area. North York never runs short of its natural landscapes, either, as it is home to the Cedar Trail and Highland Trail. According to the latest 2016 consensus, the eclectic North York area is also home to nearly 700,000 residents, making it one of the largest and most populated districts in the GTA. This diversity and ease of access to various locations have increased the price of housing and accommodation in North York. A vast majority of the population either rent apartments units and condominiums, own apartment units, or own houses that date back to the area’s founding in the 1920s. Like its environment, residential apartments and condominiums are also mixed: they can be in one of many new high-rises, old buildings and basement apartments. Both large-scale condominium developers and individual homeowners have taken advantage of the demand for accommodation, transforming neglected and underused spaces into ones that truly match the domestic landscape of this inclusive and multifaceted region.
North York Basements
Renovated and finished North York basements can be a great form of extra income for many homeowners. Basements, no matter how small, dark or cramped, can become livable so long as they follow the regulations set in the Ontario Building Code and have basic amenities, such as a kitchen, washroom and bedroom. Washing machines, dryers, heating units, power boxes and plumbing can also stay in the basement while the rest of the space is renovated for residential purposes. This includes adding the appropriate windows and vital elements like insulation and lighting. Depending on the size of your basement, you can even have multiple
bedrooms, a living room, a gym, and so much more. These living spaces do not necessarily have to be for new, prospective tenants, either; they can help accommodate a growing family as well.
North York basement renovations can also be done purely for enjoyment and relaxation. It can be a ‘man cave’, for example, or a game room. It can even hold a home theatre, gym or an entertainment area for guests. Basements can cover all of these possibilities, as long as the right materials and the right amount of work is put into the area. This means soundproofing the basement, if necessary, or creating more storage and connecting more wiring to the house. However, the problem lies in taking the first steps to renovate their North York basement.
This seems like a daunting task that requires extensive planning for time, resources and space. Factors like plumbing, piping and wiring have to be considered, especially since these domestic necessities are usually kept underground and out of sight, along with unwanted or forgotten storage items that simply gather dust in your basement. Cracked foundations may also be discovered during an inspection of your basement to see whether you should renovate or not.
Smaller basements may seem particularly difficult to renovate as the space is limited.
Consequently, the different rooms and the design elements that go into the potential North York basement renovation can be equally restricted. Thankfully, Finished Basement has the experience and construction expertise to realise potential ideas for North York basement renovations.
