Your Dream Basement

Function

Think of basement remodeling like a blank canvass. With our knowledge, in addition to our design skills, your basement can be transformed into any type of space you want. First of all, the most important step will be to decide how you want the space to function. You could install a game room for you and your friends to relax in after a long day of work, or you could also install a wine cellar to store your imported delights the proper way. Home gyms, home offices, guest rooms are also all great options!

The function of your basement remodeling project will probably affect the type of flooring, lighting, and other major components that will complete the basement. If the purpose of your basement remodeling is to entertain, then you probably want the space to be more open. If your basement will be a multi-functional room, then you should maybe make it easy to shift back and forth between the different uses will be a priority. Abbey designers will make sure your basement is redesigned to function accordingly to your desires.

The Design

Style

Just like other spaces in your house, a basement remodeling can have its own unique style and personality. There are no “rules” on how a basement has to look. It’s all about finding out what elements you like, and incorporating them into the design. It can get difficult to describe your style as modern, industrial, rustic, traditional, etc. Sometimes, a picture says a thousand words. Instead of trying to classify your style with design terms, let’s look over some different pictures and see what elements appeal to you the most. You’ll probably start to see that no one specific style describes you. Instead, your basement can become an eclectic mix of different themes and statements! After we get an idea of your style, we’ll put together a design plan to give you an idea of what your new basement will look like.

The Finishing Touch

Finish

Now we need to tie your new basement design together. Design choices like the type of flooring and fixtures you use will complete the look of your basement and add flavor. Our designers help select finishes that fit the overall style of the basement while keeping function in mind.

In conclusion, turning your basement into usable space is a great decision. At Abbey Design Center, we offer a great experience for all of our customers, with quality at the center of everything we do.

The Abbey Design Process

  1. CONCEPT:

    First, let’s meet and talk about what you have in mind. Call or email us and we’ll set up a time to come to your home, take measurements and photos, and understand the scope of your project. Every basement is different, and the way you use yours will depend on your specific needs. We offer a FREE consultation to tell us about your dream basement.

  2. BUDGETING:

    After an initial consultation we’ll be able to provide you with an estimate for your project based on your initial requests. You can’t find a better price with the quality and dedication of the Abbey team!

  3. DESIGN:

    Once we’ve gathered in the same budget ballpark, we’ll start the design process. Abbey will collect a design fee for design work, but this fee is credited back to you at contract initiation. While we’re designing the layout, we’re also helping you select all the products and finishes for your complete basement remodel. Once we’ve put it all together, you’ll have a ready contract detailing the complete project for your approval.

  4. PREPARATION:

    Once you’ve approved the design plan, we’ll start ordering all those great products we’ve just selected. We’ll procure necessary permits and begin to schedule the tradesman for your project. We’ll keep you informed on the arrival of all major components, and let you know the date the project will start so you can get the basement cleared out and ready to go. We will introduce our installers to you so you can discuss the necessary details of your home operations, i.e., don’t let the cat out.

  5. INSTALLATION:

    The day you’ve waited for has finally arrived. Oh, wait, that’s the completion date. But, nonetheless we will have to make a little dust and noise to achieve your dream basement. The tradesman will be hard at work crafting the basement according to your design plan. You will find Abbey’s craftsman to be conscientious, personable, and respectful of your home and time. You can expect daily clean up and/or cover up to protect your home. An average basement demolition and installation takes 4-6 weeks. We’ll do a walk through with you several times to make sure everything on the punch list has been completed to your satisfaction.

  6. COMPLETION:

    So we’ve checked the last item off the punch list and you’re ready to put your new basement to use! We hope we exceeded your expectations and you’ll finally be able to enjoy your basement or a higher home value if you’re looking to move on. Whichever the case, please take a couple of pictures of your dazzling new basement and share it with us on Facebook! We always appreciate our satisfied customers sharing photos of their new basements on social media!
