As you spend more and more time at home, you might be starting to think about ways you can make your home more comfortable, or expand your current usable space. Your home, even though you may not use it all, is full of potential space. A lot of focus for usable space is put on the main floor, but putting emphasis on improving the basement has many benefits. There’s no need to go all out as simple updates can have a huge impact. Take a look at basement projects that homeowners in Toronto did to make their space more comfortable.
Basement Carpet Project for $4,500 in Toronto
Victorious Carpet Installation & Repair Services installed carpet in the entire basement for this family. These homeowners have a great size basement, including a lounging space with a fireplace as well as another room. While carpet is not practical in every room of your home, the basement is a perfect fit.
Concrete or other flooring materials, such as hardwood can become quite cold in the basement, not making for a cozy environment. Carpets help to emphasize the coziness of the space while also keeping you warm. Plus, with your new WFH setup in the living room, a carpeted basement can give your kids a safe space to play without interrupting your afternoon meetings.

Basement TV & Fireplace Project for $12,000 in Richmond Hill
Max and his family hired Capable Group – Basement Renovation & Finishing Company to install a brand new fireplace wall and TV set-up. Even though they had a finished basement, they knew that they could make more use of the space. The beautiful accented fireplace wall helps to brighten up the space and draws attention to it. The living room TV might not always be an option to sit back and relax. Whether people are on calls or sleeping upstairs, the basement can provide the perfect getaway to enjoy a movie or in Max’s case, the Super Bowl! With this new addition, Max’s family now has a reason to and can enjoy hanging out in the basement.
Investing money into your basement not only expands your livable space, but it also adds value to your home. With all the time being spent at home, making use of every square-foot counts. If your basement isn’t finished, look into adding a playroom for the kids, a spare bedroom, office, or even a kitchenette to entertain. Little projects, like adding carpet or a fireplace to the room can make the space more practical and more enjoyable to use. Talk to a pro about sprucing up your basement today.
