Finishing our basement wasn’t something I thought we would ever do. With the exception of all of out fitness equipment, it remained a big empty space. As our son has grown older, we have started to feel that creating a fun area, might be a good thing for us and so, we started thinking about adding on a theater area, gym area and rec area…..what better place than the unused basement!
Ending with my favorite overall design. From the front arched entrance with white classical columns to the room addition that houses a dining room addition with more the flair of a sun room with the large eyebrow window for added sunlight. Imagine the interior dining room with cathedral ceilings, crystal chandelier and the natural light from the eyebrow window. An amazing design idea that readily allows for the formal chandelier that is fitting for this classical colonial home.
Freshly poured concrete should be sufficiently cured, a minimum of thirty days before the concrete floor acid stain application. If score patterns are desired, a diamond blade grinder may be used to score various patterns, borders or designs onto the surface prior to, or after concrete acid stain application. If light colored grout lines are desired score after staining process is complete.
I have a unfinished basement of approximately 1200 sq ft with roughing. I want to put the Standing Shower and kitchen/bar with sink and dishwasher and knee wall on one side with open entrance to make a open room and few recess lights. Make a room for heating and ac unit. No rooms at all. !! I got an estimate of $16,000 just for the labor and i have to buy the material. Your comments please. Thank You !!
