If you’ve got a basement in your home, then chances are good you’re thinking about heading down there to escape the cold during these chilly winter months. If the space isn’t already fitted for human habitation though, then you’re going to need more than a throw rug and an old catch to enjoy being down there while trying to get warm! At New Era Epoxy Flooring, our team has been working with communities throughout Texas including the DFW Metroplex to take advantage of the benefits of epoxy flooring solutions for years.

As an industry leader in high-quality, durable, and aesthetically pleasing epoxy flooring, we know what it takes to turn a decent space into an incredible living space. As more and more homeowners throughout Texas hunker down for the winter and spend time thinking of ways to stay warm, we decided it was a great time to share some ideas on how your basement could be the new area of choice for passing away time comfortably.

Start by Sealing Up the Walls

If your basement space is cold, smells musty, or the air just doesn’t “feel” right to you, then chances are good that you need to seal up your walls properly before going any further. With unsealed walls, water could seep through the materials in your home and create ideal conditions for mildew or mold to grow. There are quite a few options for sealing your walls thanks to modern technology though, and a quick inspection by a trained professional is the fastest, most effective way to get a good understanding of the steps you’ll need to take to make sure your basement area is safe for other renovations.

Don’t forget that part of this step is also making sure that your basement has proper ventilation too because even after your walls are sealed up, you’ll want to be confident that the air you’re breathing down in the basement is being freshly circulated to avoid further concerns down the road.

Epoxy Flooring Can Make All the Difference

The benefits of a layer of epoxy in your basement don’t stop at having a new, aesthetically pleasing floor. In addition to being highly durable and scratch-resistant, epoxy floors are also resistant to all forms of liquid. Recent studies suggest that 78% of all basements across the country experience some type of water damage, and a great way to protect yourself against this kind of problem is with epoxy flooring! The waterproof properties of this flooring option can help your basement smell better while reducing overall moisture buildup and keeping the things you own safe.

A professionally applied layer of epoxy also offers a variety of other benefits for your basement including slip resistance, increased resale value, and a long-lasting aesthetic finish. Most people think that epoxy flooring options are slippery, or that they’re hard to apply and even harder to deal with. The reality is though, nothing could be further from the truth. A professionally applied epoxy floor for your basement takes very little time, and once the curing process has finished, you can get started designing the space of your dreams right away.

Don’t Forget About Good Lighting

When people think of a basement, one of the first things that can come to mind is a scary staircase leading to a light bulb with a string. If you’re going to turn your basement into a place to relax though, then it’s important to remember to add enough light for the area. Natural lighting probably won’t be much of an option, so it’s important to plan when designing the space, and give yourself enough light to see everything, and ways to control the lights so you can turn them down when you want to watch a movie.
