Running out of gift ideas? Why not think outside of the box and give your family the gift of a new recreation room this holiday season?
Ready… Set… HALT.
Before you start your rec room renovation, make sure you are thoroughly prepared with Northern Craft Construction.
Be Renovation Ready
Check for water damage
Water damage can be a serious issue and cause major problems to the infrastructure of your house. Not only will water damage put a complete hold on your rec room renovation, it could also affect your entire house’s frame.
Know the objective for renovating you interior space
The more clearly you define your renovation objective the more likely Northern Craft Construction will be able to achieve and create your vision. If your objective for your recreation room is to create more space for guests you may want a guest room and second family room. If your objective is to create a place to host parties with friends it might make sense to create a bar area. Get your ideas together so Northern Craft Construction can plan the recreation room of your dreams. There are so many possibilities depending on your families’ interests – a movie theater, family room, or second office.
Plan the layout
Know the layout of your rec room before you move forward with your renovation. You want to make sure that your renovation will not overwhelm your current space or affect the overall perception of your home. Considering your layout will also help limit many unpleasant surprises and frustrations along the way.
Increase the value of your home
Not all renovations are equal when it comes to increasing the resale value of your home. Although most home improvement projects will not add a significant value to your home, an additional bathroom or installing wooden floors may be the difference between a positive cash flow.
It is important to be as prepared as possible for your basement renovation so that the process goes quickly and smoothly.
