Basement Finishing Ideas

Atlanta Basement Design was established in 2000 and has been renovating basements in Atlanta for over 20 years. All our licensed professionals have 20+ years experience in their respective fields.

Basement remodeling involves the design of basement bars, basement bathrooms, home theaters, and the basic floor plan of your entire finished basement design within the budget the homeowner presents.

We have tried to include as many before, after and progress pictures of our basements to lend authenticity to our site because so much of what is on other basement websites are stock photos bought off the internet.

Our client videos were taken over the last 20 years and some of the prices the homeowners are talking about in videos taken 15-20 years ago are no longer relevant but the money they saved over their other estimates is still very much relevant.

Basement Finishing FAQs in Atlanta

What Is Usually the Most Expensive Part of Remodeling a Basement in Atlanta?

The most expensive parts of remodeling a basement typically include plumbing, electrical work, HVAC upgrade or buildout, and egress window installation.

In addition, any structural changes if needed, such as removing walls to open the basement up require the services of a licensed engineer and the installation of structural support beams.

Is a Finished Basement in Atlanta Worth the Investment?

A finished basement significantly boosts your home’s market value and can get you a higher ROI when you sell it. 

In Atlanta, finishing a basement can provide a return of 70% to 80% of your investment. But don’t just do it for the investment. 

Do it for the extra room and added living space that a finished basement provides. 

Whether you need a home office, gym, media room, or just extra room for entertaining a finished basement is a versatile solution that can adapt to your changing needs.

Imagine transforming that dark, underutilized space into a cozy retreat, complete with plush carpeting, recessed lighting, and built-in shelving. 

Or, if you prefer an open concept, you could create a spacious family room with a wet bar and game area.

Can I Put a Bedroom in the Basement in Atlanta?

Building a bedroom in the basement is permitted in Atlanta, provided you adhere to specific building codes and safety requirements.  

Here are a few things you must know: 

  • Atlanta building codes mandate proper emergency exits, which may include the installation of windows to serve as safe escape routes. 
  • Basement bedrooms must have good ventilation and a heating system to ensure proper air circulation. All necessary measures must be taken to prevent condensation and mold growth.  
  • Compliance with International Residential Code (IRC) requirements is mandatory while adding a bedroom to your basement. 
  • Smoke alarms must be installed near the sleeping area.

How Long Does it Take to Finish My Basement?

Typically, it takes about 6 to 8 weeks, but it depends on the size of the basement, the customization you need and how long the city or county with jurisdiction for your address takes to issue the necessary permit or permits. 

Smaller basements with simpler designs can be finished quickly. However, it would take longer if you’re planning an elaborate home theater, a full bathroom addition, or intricate built-ins. The more complex the project, the more time it will require.

We always provide an expected timeline and regularly follow up with you so you always know what’s going on. 

Contact us for a free estimate, design and timeline.

What Features Should I Consider in a Basement Renovation?

There is no shortage of options, but some of the features that Atlanta residents usually prefer include built-in shelving, a home bar, a wine cellar, a home gym, a gaming room, a family room, a guest bedroom, a bathroom, a home theater, and home office. 

Feel free to reach out to us for more specific ideas and recommendations.

Is Finishing the Basement a Good Investment in Atlanta?

A well-designed basement can boost your property’s market value.  

Even if you don’t want to sell your home, you can monetize the space by transforming it into a bedroom and renting it out to earn passive income. 

Or you can customize your basement to suit your lifestyle needs, such as a home office, gym, play zone or entertainment area for kids, storage room, art studio, yoga studio, basement bar, etc. 

A finished basement will provide you with some extra livable space to dedicate to your hobbies by setting up a cozy reading corner, a photography studio, or a music room.
