3 Creative Ideas for Your Basement Remodel

A finished basement with table tennis, a couch, exercise equipment, and carpeting.

Thinking about finally remodeling your basement but not sure where to start? Finished basements are great for entertaining, give you more space in your home, and increase the final selling price of your home if you decide to move. Here are some creative ideas that will help you unlock the full value of your space during your remodel!

  • Turn it into a small bedroom. Do you have a teen who’s sick of sharing his or her bedroom with a sibling? Are you planning the arrival of a new baby? Have you always wanted a guest room in your home? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, consider turning your basement into another bedroom! A basement bedroom is cool in the summer and warm in the winter and offers an intimate and secluded space. Just remember to leave enough room for bathroom installations!
  • Step into a home gym. Love to work out but hate driving back and forth to the gym? Treat yourself to the convenience of a home gym, right in your basement! Start by calling your local basement waterproofing contractor in Bucks County to protect the flooring, then consider which machines you’d like to install. A treadmill/elliptical and set of dumbbells is a great place to start if you’re on a budget!
  • Design a dream playroom. If you have small children in your home, you’re probably familiar with the struggle of picking up toys spread all over the house. Give your little ones a place to call their own with a basement playroom! For added fun, allow children to help in the planning process by allowing them to choose the paint color or pick a new toy to celebrate the remodel.

No matter how you decide to use your basement, a basement waterproofing company in Philadelphia, PA like Rightway Waterproofing can help you protect your investment. Give us a call today at 866-741-6190 to learn more or get started!

John and Barbara Vicich

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

-Debbie, Berwyn

Doug Smith, Glenside

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
