Stress-Free Basement Design and Remodeling in Chicagoland

Schedule a Consultation

The Possibilities Are Virtually Endless

Do you love your home, but feel like you could use more living space? Wish you could give your expanding family a little more room, but don’t want to go through the inconvenience and cost of a full-blown addition? Sounds like you are an ideal candidate for basement remodeling with Synergy Builders!

While additions are a great way to add more space, often people forget to view their basement as unfished space to work with before exploring an addition as an option. A lower-level renovation allows you to enhance the space that you already have, and a basement remodeling can offer the ideal solution and ultimate convenience.

When you’re ready to begin your Chicagoland basement remodel, schedule a consultation with Synergy Builders. Working with our professional Chicagoland basement remodeling team offers a virtually endless list of renovation options.

Things to Consider When Undergoing a Basement Remodel

As an experienced finished basement company, we will help you narrow down your options, but thinking about and trying to articulate answers to the following questions are helpful first steps. We will review the questions and your responses with you.

  • How long do you plan to stay in your home? Do you anticipate lifestyle changes, like the need for an in-law apartment or dedicated space for young adults?
  • Who will be using the space? Children, teenagers and/or adults?
  • How will the new space be used? Extra storage, a living area, recreation or entertainment? How often do you entertain?
  • What is your lifestyle? Are you active, a homebody, a hobby enthusiast, a fitness buff? Do you entertain often?
  • What is your design style? Generally, you want your basement to feel like an extension of the upstairs, unless you opt for a specially themed room.
  • Is there a bathroom now, or do you plan to add one? Are you considering a functional bathroom or a luxury, spa-like room? Where would you place the bathroom?
  • Do you think structural modification will be required for what you have in mind? Do you need to knock down walls? Build walls or other dividers?
  • What are your storage needs? Would you like a place to properly store your wine collection? Do you need to store extra household items year-round or outdoor furnishings during the winter?
  • What kind of connecting spaces will require remodeling or refinishing? Stairways, hallways, access to other areas or rooms?

Budgeting for Your Chicagoland Basement Design and Remodeling

Basement renovations are big jobs that may involve structural elements, built-ins and extensive floor, wall and window finishing, as well as adding the furniture and equipment to meet your functional requirements. Because the project will be costly, obtaining and comparing at least three estimates before hiring your contractor is wise. Your goal is to determine what can be accomplished within your budget.

How much does a typical basement remodel cost? Of course, a lot depends on the size of your basement, structural alterations, electrical and plumbing changes, and what you plan to do with your space. Remodeling Magazine’s Cost Vs Value report found on average the midrange price for a basement remodel is $71,115.*
