There are endless possibilities of what to do with a basement space, and this is where a basement designer comes in. A basement designer will crucially assess the vacant basement space while initialising plans. As a general rule, there is also a consideration of the basement size, lighting, air circulation and amount of construction work in need.

To begin with, the designer will draft a floor plan, multiple design options with a cost estimate. At this point, the homeowners will have ideas of their basement requirements together with their affordability which is equally important. Another important responsibility of designer’s job, in particular, is to assess the suitability of the basement. In the event that a designer or architect is absent, issues such as “rotting wood, bad beams and weak framework” are difficult to locate. A specialist basement designer will utilize natural light in the house while knowing the placement of bathrooms in order to maximize space.
