I have waited so long to make this post, and even though we are not done yet, I just have to share our progress.

Do put furring on your walls: the floor isn’t the only place where moisture can seep into the basement. Apart from ensuring that there won’t be any water issues with your floor, install furring strips on the wall. This should give you about a half inch space between the moisture on the outside of the wall and the interior wall.

Om, you make me laugh! Those poor little laundry rooms. They probably would have an extreme inferiority complex! And I appreciate your nice comments! Hi. this is a great hub! I find that clever use of wall cabinets can do wonders to space use of your bathroom. I use the ones with mirror on them. The walls in here are painted more of a greenish-blue, a sort of sea-glass color. I found the mirrors on clearance at Lowe’s for only $9 each! This bathroom is eclectic. I believe the dresser is Spanish style and the light fixture is Victorian.

Benefits of carpet include the variety of colors and styles available, its sound-muffling qualities and many pricing options. Drawbacks include wear in traffic areas, increased maintenance in comparison to hard flooring options and it’s inability to survive a flooding event. This basement media room/family room combination provides the perfect spot to gather with family and friends. The decor is natural and pleasing to the eye.

Energy savings. Many unfinished basements have too many air leaks and too little insulation. Adding insulation and energy-efficient windows in the basement will improve your home’s comfort while saving money on heating and cooling costs. Hi Martie! Thanks so much for your comments. Sometimes just replacing a curtain or shower curtain in a bathroom makes the whole room look new.
