Basement Remodeling in Maryland, DC & Northern Virginia
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 town 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.

Basement Remodeling IDeas
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 the surrounding areas to design basement elements such as:
- 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!
Cost-Effective Basement Remodels
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.
Wondering about the average cost to remodel a basement? It depends what your existing basement is like. A 1000-square-foot basement renovation could range by over $20,000, depending on the starting condition of the space and the design. Labor is the bulk of the cost, followed by plumbing/electrical (if needed), then personal finishes.
If the perimeter walls and the roof are in good condition, creative design solutions can save money during a basement remodel. In certain homes, our basement remodeling contractors 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!
What about the best flooring options for a basement? Traditional hardwoods are out since they’re so sensitive to moisture. Floor tiles are your best bet, particularly floating ones: ceramic, carpet, engineered hardwood, laminate, and more.
