Basement Finishing Winfield, ILFor many homeowners, exploring various basement floor plans is the most exciting part of the basement remodeling experience. You may have long wanted to upgrade your basement, and when the time has finally come to install the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™, it can be a lot of fun determining how you want to remodel this new living space in your home. So where do you start?

The beauty of basement remodeling is that you can create just about any type of living space imaginable, from a playroom for the little ones to a basement suite for your aging parents or grandparents. One of the best parts about the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ is the flexibility that the basement floor plans offer the homeowner once it has been installed. For instance, many people use Owens Corning basements as:

  • Home theaters – One of the reasons installing a home theater in your newly remodeled basement makes sense is that this basement remodeling method is sound absorbent and can even improve the overall acoustics of the basement. As a result, you don’t have to worry quite as much about sound from your entertainment center disturbing the rest of your home.
  • Spare bedrooms – The Basement Finishing System™ is also unlike many other basement renovation methods in that it comes standard with built-in thermal insulation. This insulation helps limit the transfer of heat into and out of the home, and may even lead to cost savings on monthly energy bills*.
  • Personal gyms – By selecting the right basement flooring, hanging a mirror, and investing in the exercise equipment you prefer, you can turn your basement into a gorgeous and practical home gym. One of the advantages of using the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ is that the walls of the basement remodel are breathable and do not support the growth of mold or mildew**. This is important in gym environments where moisture can lead to issues in the long-run, which is why this is a popular basement floor plan amongst homeowners.

No matter how you configure your basement floor plan, the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ could provide the solution to your basement renovation needs. That’s because the Basement Finishing System™ has been designed and engineered specifically for the basement and provides easy access to the home’s foundation, plumbing, and wiring, thanks to its removable walls and trim components. This means you won’t have to worry about patching, sanding, and repainting should these components need repair.
