Tackle That Basement Project

Posted in: Basements

A FINISHED BASEMENT

One of our very favorite blog posts shares about the benefit of transforming a basement that has drop ceilings simply by adding curtain tracks and curtains. Overall, finishing a basement is two to three times more cost efficient in adding space and value to your home than an actual addition because the overall cost is much less significant. This means refinishing a basement is an affordable way to add living space and value to your home. Added home value aside, finishing a basement so your family will actually spend time in it, can be priceless.



DROP IT!

If you already have a drop ceiling, you are well on your way. Now you need to decide where you would like to add your curtain tracks and the purpose the curtains will serve (room divider to create bedroom space?) Using our 6155 Clamp eliminates having to drill holes in the ceiling grid and our 6151 cartridge allows the carriers and hooks to connect to the clamp. The beauty about a drop ceiling is it allows for easy attachment to the metal parts of the drop ceiling and eventual changes in design. Our 6100 flexible curtain track is a sensible choice for a basement project as it can be easily bent by hand if needed to conform to any odd angles.

Once you have your curtain track and accessories in place, you can add curtains that serve to divide a room (i.e. work-out room or craft room?), conceal a storage area or hot water tank, cover windows to create energy efficiency, or they can even cover a whole wall to create a softer, cozy feel to the room. We have a wide variety of curtains to choose from including our Allegro Fabric Curtains which have a slight sheen and a subtle pattern of irregular circles running throughout. These curtains are so durable, hospitals even use them because they are anti-bacterial, machine washable, and 100% flame retardant.

SO MANY USES

Once your project is complete, just think of the things your family can do in this brand new space:

  • Slumber Parties
  • Game Nights
  • Movie Nights
  • Football Parties
  • Craft and Scrapbook Parties
  • Work-Out Space
