If you have ever wondered if it’s possible to transform an unfinished basement, full of boxes and hanging wires, into a glamorous retreat from the world, the answer is a resounding “yes!”
In one of our latest remodels, Atlanta Curb Appeal transformed a lowly basement into a gorgeous downstairs that not only has multiple rooms but also features an attractive pool-side entrance!
This East Cobb family’s entire bottom level had become ‘the place where everything just got tossed.’ Over time, it had filled up and had become frankly unusable.
In their search for someone to bid on the project, they received a recommendation from their next-door neighbors, who were happy ACA customers.
Honestly, the renovation took a lot of creativity and vision. Before the project, the room was simply an enormous open space full of hanging pipes, exposed HVAC ducts, and loose wires. Like many families’ basements, it had become their default storage location. On the plus side, it was a very broad space with the potential to add a lot of square footage to the home.
Because the basement was so immense, ACA was able to add a new kitchenette, laundry room, bathroom, and bedroom. In order to do that, they had to relocate a substantial amount of plumbing. They also had to move the electrical wiring and the HVAC ducts. In the process, they created vaulted ceilings to give the rooms a more airy feel in what is typically a low-ceiling space.
As with most basement remodels, ACA does not recommend hardwood or composite flooring. This advice was especially true for this home because their basement was created for pool-side access. Instead, they used luxury vinyl plank or LVP. This high-quality vinyl can withstand the normal moisture of a basement plus the added ‘wet foot’ traffic from the pool.
Atlanta Curb Appeal made the transformation for this family in just two months! The family was truly amazed that ACA completed the project in such a short amount of time. They were also happy that ACA created a large additional living space out of an area that was not really used in the house before the renovation.
