Hanover County, VA Basement Remodeling Permits

Minimalism is taking over basement remodeling in 2019. A basement with a minimalist touch will still look warm and cozy when done properly. Use these basement design ideas and pictures to tastefully incorporate minimalism into your next luxury basement renovation.

Minimalist Furniture

Minimalism does not mean getting rid of all of the furniture. In fact, oversized furniture with soft and round edges is the ideal minimalist basement design. Chairs and couches with an angled pitch are in vogue; straight-back furniture, not so much. Coffee tables and basement entertaintment centers are still in-style, though they are condensed and no longer the centerpiece of the room.

Natural Colors

Minimalism emphasizes texture over color. A natural palette consisting primarily of white, beige and brown will make subtle textural design choices more noticeable from up-close and at a distance. LVT flooring can show off earthy minimalist tones; rugs will add texture.

Pros of installing a walkout entrance

Better lighting

Perhaps the most essential feature of a walkout is its ability to boost the natural light in your basement. Natural light often has an understandably difficult time reaching a regular basement space, making the basement feel closed off and dungeon-esque. Adding a door (or double door) walkout provides the light the opportunity to flood into the basement. Not only is the additional light aesthetically pleasing, but air will also flow with much greater ease through the basement, helping with mold prevention.


This is a rather obvious feature—an additional entrance means easier access. Walkouts are perfect if you have people living or staying in your basement. Family, guests, teens with their friends, renters, and so on can keep odd hours without waking the rest of the house. It’s really the best way to keep the night owls and the morning people in your home from disturbing each other. Additionally, the new entrance is also useful for emergency situations, such as a fire!

Increase property value

Another noticeable advantage of putting in a walkout basement is the increase in property value that comes with it! A lovely new walkout will increase the resale value of your home.
