Home theatre, games room, wet bar, office space, mancave. These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to basement renovation ideas. This is why basement renovations are one of our favourites, here at Quay Construction.
Basement renovations are both a rewarding and costly undertaking. Average basement renovation in Vancouver can cost in range of $120 - $250 per sf. In other words an average 1000 sf basement renovation costs range between $120,000 - $250,000. This being the case, careful planning and consideration are required prior to starting a basement renovation.
During our consultation, we will discuss topics to start formulating an initial concept for your project. First and foremost, what is your ultimate goal from your renovation project? Are you renovating for recreational use or do you intend on renovating to increase property value or possibly create a separate suite for rent or other family members? If your response is the former, then we will delve further into what you aim to achieve from your recreational space and assess your basement to determine whether we can add extra bonus fun areas to your basement. If you are renovating to increase value, then we will discuss cost effective solutions in terms of layouts for creating a basement suite.
We will also review any items that you may not currently be satisfied with. These may include insufficient ventilation or natural light. You may also prefer having an additional bathroom or a second kitchen bar. You may want to increase lighting or insulation in the basement.
We will take the time to go over and understand your goals and any inconveniences with your existing basement. We will review some design inspirations with you to start brainstorming about what you may want in your new basement. Once we have come up with some preliminary ideas, we will start the designing your project.

Quite often basement renovations are triggered with a goal to change the usage of the space. Whether you are planning to create a home office, an entertainment den or a basement suite, it is likely that you will need to change the layout to achieve the end result you wish to have.
A renovation and a remodel differ in the sense that, a renovation is essentially restoring the elements of an existing space, whereas a remodel is changing the space and creating something new. If you are considering a basement remodel, this increases the number of possibilities. You may want to increase the width of your entry way, increase the size of the bathroom, add another bathroom, add another kitchen, add or remove walls to change the layout, etc.
Although remodelling projects are more costly than renovations, there are several options when planning your basement remodel to help you offset the cost of construction by increasing the value of your property. We will walk you through all the options throughout the design stages to ensure you are getting the basement that is right for you.
