Basements Are Different From Other Levels
Your unfinished basement is a bonus space. It's a space that you'd build an uncommon room. You'd build a room here that you wouldn't necessarily build anywhere else in the house.
There are a lot of considerations for basement design ideas .
It's not the same space as the other levels of your home because of moisture, air flow and ventilation.
It's also where you house the utilities of your home. So it does require different treatment.
When hiring a contractor to remodel the basement, find out if he has experience with basement remodeling. Don't be afraid to ask to see some of his work. Instead of thinking of this space as a 'basement', reconsider it as an addition. It's an addition that doesn't require adding foundation, walls and ceilings.
