Basement Trends 2021
A basement doesn’t have to be cold and dark. Choose yellows, reds, and oranges for your walls and you’ll notice an obvious change in warmth in the room!
Spruce up your walls; they deserve it! If the colours of your walls set the tone, adding textures like a little wallpaper will give it the extra push it needs to make your decor truly daring!
Natural materials such as quality wood for your furniture are forever in style. Choosing to have them as decorative elements will make your basement seem trendy every season! You can’t go wrong with wood essence!

Frequently asked questions
Does a closed room in the basement need to have a window? If so, what should the dimensions be?
It is now mandatory to have a window large enough to serve as an emergency exit in any closed room in the basement. The minimum dimensions required are 52 x 30 inches.
Do I need a subfloor in my basement?
If your floor (concrete slab) is level, you may not need to add a subfloor, but keep in mind that your floor will always be cold. The main purpose of a subfloor is to ensure that your floor is level and to make it warmer.
How do I go about making a separate entrance for a basement?
This calls for plans and an engineer. You’ll also need to check with the city to find out if it’s permitted and specify the reason for wanting an additional entry. Then you’ll have to dig, create formwork, pour the concrete, and make the new opening in the existing foundation.
