Stор thinking about уоur basement аѕ just a ѕtоrаgе аrеа. With the right vіѕіоn and professional advice, you саn turn уоur basement into an entirely new space that is better suited to your needs.
It's time to contact us to schedule a free in-home consultation.
During your free consultation, we will discuss and work with you to develop a plan for your basement remodelling that incorporates all your needs and suits your lifestyle and your budget.
No matter what type of basement finishing or renovation you need, we first will ensure that your basement structure is sound. We will check if it is watertight, waterproofed, properly insulated and suitable for a renovation. If we find that your basement is damp or has mildew, we will repair it to ensure optimum air circulation and humidity levels, transforming your basement into a warm, dry and healthy place for you and your family to enjoy for many years to come.
If you are not sure what do you want to do with your basement, here are a few basement renovations concepts to consider:
Transforming a basement into a home entertainment and home theatre is one of the most popular remodelling solutions we have encountered. This room can be enjoyed by the whole family, not only to watch movies and play video games, but also to listen to music or just read and relax.
Converting your basement into a home gym could help you transform your health too. A private gym in your own home will give you the opportunity to work out whenever you want. You won't need to give up your lunch hour or your evening for your exercise routine. Workout whenever you like in your brand new gym!
If you work at home and need time away from your kids, a basement home office could be a good solution. You will be able to focus on the task at-hand, away from the television and everyday household noises.
Traditionally wine cellars were cold and dark places where wine was allowed to mature. Today it is easy to recreate those same conditions with modern custom wine fridges designed to keep your wine bottles at a perfect temperature.
Saunas and steam rooms don’t take up much space, and so are the perfect addition to a home gym. Both steam rooms and saunas are excellent for your health. They can help alleviate arthritis, bone pains, and allergies.
Small children have a lot of toys and games that need a good size room and a large storage space. If you want to avoid having their toys all over your living room, a basement playroom is your best solutions. A basement playroom is a place where you can spend quality time with your children while they learn while playing in a safe environment.
Transforming a basement into an in-law suite is the most popular basement renovations. It is ideal for older parents, teenagers, grown children still living at home, visiting friends and family, or even to rent out for some extra income.
My parents are always coming over. Unfortunately our house doesn't have enough rooms, so they always have to sleep on the fold out couch. My husband decided that it would be a good idea to create a bedroom and bathroom in the basement. I contacted Lucas Richard, since a friend told me they did his basement. It was a great decision. Not only did he and his team create a gorgeous basement suite, they stayed on budget. Now my parents have a place to stay, and their backs don't hurt!

Before going ahead with your renovation, it is extremely important to make sure that the basement floor and walls are dry and isolated to prevent any humidity or leakage. Sometimes, special heating systems are needed in areas with high humidity. There are many flooring options to give your floors a warm and inviting feeling such as engineered wood, rubber, and laminate flooring made with moisture-resistant plywood.
When finishing a basement there are always pipes, ducts, and wires to be concealed. You may need to drop the ceiling in some areas. Consolidating the obstructions to one area and creating a space with a lower ceiling is a good compromise.
If your basement is poorly lit, there are two options. Either expand the window sizes to accommodate more light or upgrade the electric wiring to set up more lighting fixtures.
When real windows are not an option, you can easily install virtual windows. They can make a room feel larger, create different moods and the right atmosphere for your room.

Lucas Richard did an excellent job on my kitchen. It is hard to find companies that you can rely on. They also made sure that the kitchen met my expectations before they finished the project. The quality of work is amazing!
