Ceiling
After you have made sure that the plan for the essential works for your basement renovation are taken care of, it is just the right time to start discussing what type of ceiling you need to install.

Lighting
Light is one of the biggest considerations that you need to pay attention to when renovating your basement. As a rule, basement spaces do not have a lot of natural light because of their underground location. This means that you will have to interchange natural light with artificial possibilities. Experts advise to first of all use light and pastel tones for walls and furniture in order to make lighter visual appearance of the room. And as for the light itself, you should opt for ceiling options and also for pot lights, that will add coziness and style to your project.


Storage
Storage is always a great idea for the basement space, no matter what room function you want to have in the end. Think about creating built-in storages that are always of great use and undoubtedly look very sophisticated. It will create a place to store some stuff, and at the same time it will be hidden from other people’s eyes. When planning your basement storage place, experts advise to take as much space as you can without influencing on the functionality of the room, because there is always not enough storage space when it comes to useless things.


Flooring
