Get the Most Out of Unused Space
If you don’t want to build an addition but need more space in your home in Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Bethesda, or a surrounding area in Maryland, Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia, you need basement remodeling from the award-winning team at Wentworth, Inc.
Basement finishing and/or remodeling is a smart way to reap the benefits of existing space in your home. Basements, particularly cramped and dreary ones, can be put to better use as:
- Home offices
- Guest rooms
- Exercise studios
- In-law suites
- And more
In older DC metropolitan area homes, where space is at a premium, turning underutilized basements into livable space is a great way to add function.
Most basement renovation projects involve creating an informal living space with a bathroom and possibly a guest room. When it comes to such remodels, the Wentworth design/build team has seen and done it all—we have worked with homeowners in Silver Spring, Bethesda, and surrounding areas to design basement:
- Laundry closets
- Full-blown laundry rooms
- Home theaters
- Wet bars
- Kitchenettes for entertaining
- And more
More Room for You
A basement is the perfect place to carve out extra space for a personal hobby or passion, and we have helped homeowners incorporate their needs, ranging from hobby rooms (for painting, photography, etc.) to exercise rooms. Homeowners often request that a basement be turned into a space designed for entertaining and relaxation, with defined areas for a bar, media, and sometimes even a pool table. The extra space found in an unused basement is ideal for letting creativity flow!
Basements, while not necessarily the least expensive rooms to remodel, are still a cost-effective way to add livable space to your home. If you want your new basement to reflect the style and quality of the rest of your home, a basement remodeling project will require the expertise of a design/build firm well-versed in the difficulties of remodeling interior space below ground.
If the perimeter walls and the roof are in good condition, creative design solutions can save money during a basement remodel. In certain homes, we have designed basements with open exposed ceiling joists and painted masonry walls—a design decision that is cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing. You should never have to sacrifice good design to save money!
