Your Experienced Basement Remodeling Northern VA Contractors

We Offer Basement Remodeling and Renovations

Remodeling or renovating a basement is a large investment, but it can add both an increased resale value and much needed square footage to your home. Whether you’re looking to install a game room or home theater, gym or bar, your best first step is to think about your family’s needs and plan accordingly.

At Foley, we believe a great basement remodel starts with a great design. Our goal is to help Northern VA homeowners create the space they’ve always dreamed of – one that blends seamlessly with the rest of the existing home and isn’t just a basement with some design elements thrown in. That means creating a functional layout that takes into consideration what the room will be used for. Most original basements do not make the most efficient use of their square footage and our job is to explore with homeowners all the available options so that the remodeled basement reaches its full potential.

Falls Church: Traditional Custom Country Home

Every family has its own unique lifestyle, so when deciding what your remodeled basement will look like, think about how your family most often spends its time and design accordingly. If you love hosting parties, think about a home bar; for a kid-friendly space, maybe a massive family room with home theater is best. Here are a just a few of the interesting ways you can use that extra space:
  • Game Room. You may literally be sitting on a gold mine when it comes to finding space in your home for a game room. An unfinished, or partially finished, dry basement is perfect for pool tables and gaming centers.
  • Home Theater. Our home theater designs take family entertainment to a whole new level. From basic surround sound to state-of-the-art equipment and soundproofing, we will transform your basement into a cinephile’s delight.
  • Home Gym. Experience the joy and convenience of exercising at home by installing a home workout space. We’ll design an exercise area that will help you achieve your fitness goals in the comfort of your own home.
  • Home Bar. From Old-English pub to casual lounge style, our custom home bar designs let you make the most of your basement space by adding an entertainment element that is not only perfect for hosting parties, but as a relaxing at-home retreat. Home bars are often included in other designs such as home theaters or game rooms.

As Northern VA’s premiere remodeling firm, we know what it takes to maximize and best utilize your basement’s footprint with a design that perfectly matches your family’s lifestyle. No matter which remodeling plan you choose, you can count on us to design a room that fits seamlessly into your existing architectural style and features top-quality craftsmanship we’re known for.

What to Consider

Before deciding which direction to go with a basement remodel or renovation, we advise homeowners to think about the following considerations:

  • Dampness in a basement can create a host of problems, so it should be addressed first. The mold and mildew that often accompany dampness can present health concerns for your family, so we always recommend that this issue be taken care of before any remolding or renovation work begins.
  • Ceiling height and visible ductwork will have an impact on your design plans. They can either be incorporated into your design or, if possible, reconfigured to better fit in with your needs and wishes.
  • Concrete floors can be cold and uncomfortable, not to mention hard on your legs and back, especially if you plan to install a home gym. We’ll help you decide if installing another flooring option, such as ceramic tile or carpeting, will be the best choice for providing warmth and comfort.
  • Lighting requirements will depend on how you intend to use the room, as well as whether you have what is known as a “sunlight basement,” meaning one where at least one wall is above ground and has windows that let in natural light.
  • Built-ins are a popular choice for basement remodels. They help clarify room divisions and are perfect for storing gear and organizing supplies. Some ideas include a custom entertainment center with shelves and cabinets for electronics; space for a microwave and wine fridge in a wet bar; or built in benches with storage underneath for games rooms.

The options for built-ins are endless and our design team will help you discover what works best for your basement.
