Basement Redesign and Reno Project: From Dark and Dingy to Bright and Cheerful!

This renovation project has quickly become one of my favourite designs of all time. As a basement of a bungalow, the new owner of this home wanted it to feel as much as it was a living space as it was upstairs.

Much of the the huge 1700 sq. ft. space was wasted as it was a poorly designed layout. Everything about the dark, dingy, and patchy space seemed like an afterthought or a bargain shop purchase.
With the help of our construction crew and some wise design choices, the space has now a crowd favourite and has already hosted many gatherings to the delight of the home owner!
The basement stairs now: solid stained oak with iron pickets. A grand entrance to the large, white bright space! The star of the show is definitely this new Torly’s saw cut Lexington white laminate.
One of my favourite features of this basement is this custom kitchenette and bar area we built complete with white Corian countertops to ward off any stains from wine or juice from parties.
The laundry room before
The laundry room now: double doors open to reveal a brand new pair of washer and dryer (we can get you excellent deals on appliances if you renovate with us)
Another photo of what the rooms looked like before
We constructed 3 generous sized bedrooms with plenty of room for the main area to spare.
Another bedroom gets a cheery outlook for hosting grandkids


The rec room has been designed with many versatility in mind. The rooms are able to host card games, ball hockey games, video game tournaments (with a mounted large screen tv), and sophisticated parties. We try our best to give you the best out of every inch!
The future 2nd washroom
A brand new washroom was installed compete with custom tiling in the shower stall.
