4 Modern Basement Designs

Whether you basement is completely unfinished, or looks extremely outdated, a modern basement design will provide your family with a much needed living space. Ottawa general contractors have many modern basement ideas to help you create a welcome retreat for family and friends including:

Customized Bar

If you fancy yourself a bit of a craft beer expert, or wine connoisseur, and enjoy entertaining in modern living spaces, the basement is the perfect place to create a bar. A unique open design concept with an eye catching bar centre piece is the perfect place to retire after a lovely dinner party where people can gather and enjoy drinks and conversation. A built in wet bar provides you with the perfect entertaining base where you can go all out with a wine fridge, beer on tap and all the spirits you need to mix up some signature cocktails. You can even add a toaster oven for heating up appetizers.

Office Space

The modern basement design often incorporates an office space where the workaholic in you has a place to work quietly. The modern lifestyle often includes an element of telecommuting that many people prefer over travelling to the office every day. Ottawa general contractors can provide luxuries such as a built in desk and storage as well as the proper configuration for electrical outlets to keep you functioning effectively when working from home. It is also a great space for kids to do homework, or for you to pay bills, catch up on emails or surf the web.

Laundry Room

You have a number of options for the modern laundry room including the addition of storage space, counter tops for folding and a built in ironing board. You can also consider moving the laundry room upstairs for convenience and then using the existing plumbing to build a spa bathroom as the perfect retreat at the end of the day.


The home theatre is not just about a big screen TV and a sofa any more. The modern basement renovation includes the latest in built in sound systems, automatic screens and even customized seating. In smaller basements you can opt to combine your media room/living room/theatre by using large comfy sofas ideal for gaming and conversation with a retractable big screen and hidden projectors for the best of both worlds.

Ottawa general contractors can make your basement modern, comfortable and functional incorporating your needs and your wants perfectly.
