Your basement has the perfect amount of space that can be transformed into an entertainment area with a kitchenette, wet bar, a home theater, a workout room, a guest suite, or even a hideaway for a child’s play area. Abbey Design Center is here to give you the basement remodel design of your dreams and to show you functional space is only a staircase away.


Things To Consider In Your Basement Remodel Design:

Transforming your basement into a brilliant hideaway is a good investment for homeowners in the Northern Virginia area, considering the current housing market is a seller’s market. If you’re thinking of moving in the near future and have an unfinished or uninviting basement, remodeling your space into something beautiful can be one of the best ways to earn a boost in home equity.

Built Ins

Basements are generally open spaces but can feel smaller than they actually are by nature. It can sometimes be hard to tastefully fill the room with furniture and decorations, especially with bulky furniture. One of the best ways to maximize valuable space and enhance the flow of the room is built-ins. Bookshelves are a simple way to improve your basement’s aesthetic. You can also create space for a powerful flat screen television set or a built-in fireplace, giving your basement a focal point and turning it into an entertainment area. Built-in additions to your basement are a simple way to maximize space while creating attractive storage for the den.

Beautiful Basement Hardwood Flooring


Another factor to consider for your basement remodeling project is the flooring option. A well-designed floor can give your hideaway that cozy charm you’ve always wanted, or perhaps an elegant vintage touch. The difference between themes and basement stylings varies with your flooring material. While finishing your basement, the choice between hardwood and carpet can be a tough decision. If your basement receives a lot of light and is naturally warm and charming, then hardwood flooring or tile is the way to go. However, basements that are mostly walled-in underground benefit from carpet because of its insulating properties and breathability. The soft carpet in conjunction with proper décor and built-ins can create that pleasant and inviting space you’ve always wanted.
