The Benefits of Bundling Your Basement and Laundry Renovation

Why is it Beneficial to Bundle Your Basement and Laundry Renovation Together?

When you’re planning on staying in your home for years to come, there’s no reason to compromise on any detail. Two of the most overlooked areas of the home are the laundry and basement. Both are rooms that families use frequently, but are not typically prioritized when it comes to renovating. Given their frequent use, each holds enormous potential for enhancing your quality of life by improving their accessibility and functionality. If you’ve been putting off your basement or laundry upgrade, now is the ideal time to start exploring how to makeover both of these areas simultaneously. Let’s take a look at some examples of how this might work for your forever home in Toronto or Vaughan, ON.

First-Floor Living

According to Houzz, builders originally placed laundry rooms in the basement to conserve space in the living area on the main floor. What they failed to realize was that placing the laundry in the basement would make doing laundry problematic for older homeowners who tend to develop mobility issues that make ascending and descending stairs a challenge.

Fortunately, with a design-build company like Sosna at your disposal, your first floor layout can be completely revamped to accommodate a fully equipped laundry. Some homeowners opt to put an addition off their primary suite, while others add a laundry room by extending it to the adjacent room. Even if your  current layout has many limitations, our designers are experts at identifying ways to reconfigure your layout to create the space you need. In addition to the design, we also manage ordering materials, demolition, and construction all in one. If you have an idea of laundry features you would like to include, from utility sinks to folding tables, Linen closets to dog wash stations, our team will work with you to bring your vision to life. Many homeowners choose to combine laundry and mudroom, and say that this is the most used room in the house!

Guest Suite Accommodations

Turning your basement into a full guest suite can make your home the base for holiday gatherings, family reunions, and more. By moving the laundry out of the basement during this process, it will give you the opportunity to create a place where your guests will have a private and comfortable space to enjoy their stay.

A functional basement renovation can include a kitchenette, full bath, and a separate bedroom. This way, guests can feel at ease and don’t have to go upstairs to get a glass of water in the middle of the night or bathe in the morning. Extra living space is a great way to replace your former cleaning and folding laundry rooms. This home reno is one that you and your guests will appreciate.

A Recreation Revamp

Your basement can also be transformed into a recreational space. Whether you want to turn it into your kid’s playroom or get creative with a media or hobby room, your entire family can utilize it all year long. With amenities like this at home, you and your family will have the space to spend more time together, or separate noisy activities from the main and upper floors.

You can even create a game room where you can have tournaments with your kids, grandkids, or extended family. An at-home theatre is also a home reno that many homeowners love. It can make you feel like you’re at the movies without having to go out.
