Basement

Get the Most Out of Unused Space

basement remodeling

If you don’t want to build an addition but need more space in your home in Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Bethesda, or a surrounding area in Maryland, Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia, you need basement remodeling from the award-winning team at Moretti Construction.

Basement finishing and/or remodeling is a smart way to reap the benefits of existing space in your home. Basements, particularly cramped and dreary ones, can be put to better use as:

  • Playrooms
  • Home offices
  • Guest rooms
  • Exercise studios
  • And more

In older DC metropolitan area homes, where space is at a premium, turning underutilized basements into livable space is a great way to add function.

Most basement renovation projects involve creating an informal living space with a bathroom and possibly a guest room. When it comes to such remodels, the Moretti Construction design/build team has seen and done it all—we have worked with homeowners in Montgomery County, Baltimore, Washington DC and surrounding areas to design basement:

  • Laundry closets
  • Full-blown laundry rooms
  • Home theaters
  • Wet bars
  • Kitchenettes for entertaining
  • And more

More Room for You

A basement is the perfect place to carve out extra space for a personal hobby or passion, and we have helped homeowners incorporate their needs, ranging from hobby rooms (for painting, photography, etc.) to exercise rooms. Homeowners often request that a basement be turned into a space designed for entertaining and relaxation, with defined areas for a bar, media, and sometimes even a pool table. The extra space found in an unused basement is ideal for letting creativity flow!

Cost-Effective Creativity

Basements, while not necessarily the least expensive rooms to remodel, are still a cost-effective way to add livable space to your home. If you want your new basement to reflect the style and quality of the rest of your home, a basement remodeling project will require the expertise of a design/build firm well-versed in the difficulties of remodeling interior space below ground.

If the perimeter walls and the roof are in good condition, creative design solutions can save money during a basement remodel. In certain homes, we have designed basements with open exposed ceiling joists and painted masonry walls—a design decision that is cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing. You should never have to sacrifice good design to save money!
