Home Remodeling with Space in Mind? Tips for Converting a Basement into a Playroom | Washington DC
Families with young children often struggle with having enough space for them to play comfortably. In order for you to have the space you need without spending a lot of money on expanding, you should convert the basement into a play area. In order for the home remodeling project to go smoothly, you should consider what features are essential for the perfect playroom.
Many homeowners associate basements with damp and uncomfortable spaces that become either too hot or cold, depending on the season. In order for the basement to be comfortable for your children, you’ll need to get the walls and ceiling properly insulated.
Air Conditioning and Heating
Another important thing you’ll need to do to improve the comfort of the basement is getting air conditioning and heating installed. Focusing on these two elements will help the basement turned playroom feel like an extension of your home and make it easy to regulate the temperature.
New Flooring and Paint
Basement floors are often cement and can be dangerous for your child if they fall while playing. This is why it’s a good idea to spend your money on replacing the floors with carpeting. A fresh coat of paint on the walls can also help brighten up the room and get it ready for furnishing.
