Things to consider before starting your Basement renovation project

Do you want it to be one big room, or is it better with smaller spaces for different functions? Would it be easy to add a bathroom? These are the types of questions you need to ask yourself before you begin.


The main concern for basement layouts is the space. Firstly, space in the basement is often limited, and can also be dark. Therefore you must think big – go for open spaces. Consequently, this lets natural light filter into the whole area creating an impression of spaciousness. As the additional decor idea, we offer Japanese shoji style custom window covers to give your basement privacy and very stylish look.


If the rooms are designed for activities that require quiet and concentration –home office or privacy of guest room then you could opt for our custom built doors that let the natural light through. On the other hand, consider a more open layout for a game or entertainment room.

Existing structure: 

Basements often have structural constraints that you’ll have to incorporate or find a way around. For instance, there are probably low ceilings, pipes or technical equipment may be visible. Consequently, you need to be aware of these constraints before starting work. However, even that kind of unsightly obstacles can be covered with a dynamic and consistent design to give your basement stylish look.

Permanent vs. Flexible layout and basement design

If you want to have your basement finished without permanent layout, Doc4Home has an option for you. Consider sliding doors with transparent or opaque glass panels as temporary divides. As a result, our unique design will give you the flexibility of rearranging your basement accordingly to whatever is your need to use it for. Subsequently, you can even transform two smaller spaces into a big room with a sliding wall of three doors. For example, a guest room and office into one big movie theater.

On the other hand, if your goal is to build more traditional design Doc4Home has the expertise and the skills to transfer your idea into a functional and attractive living space where the whole family can get together.

In either scenario we say, don’t just think about it, just do it! And we’ll help every step of the way with great advice, great design, and excellent project management to ensure your basement not only meets your expectations but exceeds them.
