Ideas for Finishing Your Basement
One of the best things about a basement is that the space can be whatever you want and need. The possibilities are endless, and the stakes are high. Basements are notorious for flooding, ruining treasured items and all the work that went into creating a finished basement.
Because of the risk of flooding, it’s important to take steps to ensure that water is not an issue. Make sure a basement is waterproofed, and additional measures (such as sub pumps) are taken to prevent future floods. Once the basement is dry (and is going to remain that way), hire an experienced contractor to finish the basement into a dream room.

Custom basement remodeling that's designed for YOU.
If you want to add a bit of the pub to your basement, or want a place to hang out with your friends, consider adding a bar to your basement. When planning your bar layout, look at your basement layout, the amount of people you want hanging out on stools, and what features you want (fridge, keg, etc.) in your bar. For more suggestions, ask an experienced contractor who can help you plan the perfect basement bar.
Wisconsin winter days and nights get cold; adding a fireplace to your basement can be the perfect way to warm up after a day out in the snow or for just hanging out watching a movie or reading a book. For a warm look (and not just a warm glow), add stone or a decorative mantle to finish off the fireplace.
Creative storage & displays
If your basement is a play space for the youngest or “most experienced” in your family, hire a contractor to add creative storage for all the kid’s toys. For a more experienced family member’s prized collection, ask your contractor for suggestions for creative display cabinets or shelving. Either addition to your basement would be the perfect finishing touch for a long winter indoors.
