Finishing your Daylit Basement

A daylit basement in Mangêt that's unfinished and ready for your personal design style

In select Brock Built communities all across Metro Atlanta, such as Mangêt, we’ve built homes with beautifully daylit basements. With an unfinished basement, you’re literally sitting on a world of design possibilities. Taming that opportunity, though, can take some time and effort. That’s why today we’re offering guidance on how you can turn your daylit basement into a dream space.

Wall-to-Wall

The first step will be getting your space walled up the way you want it. Install insulation where necessary, hang up drywall, and add doors and baseboards. Then comes the fun part – it’s time to paint. Pick colors that will create a bright, welcoming atmosphere to match the gorgeous light streaming through the windows.

Floor It

You have so many options when it comes to the floor in your new basement. You could coat it in concrete floor sealer to create a sturdy, shiny workshop space. Paint it for a pop of color and a fun vibe. Lay down a workout mat and convert that space into a gym. Or, just roll out the area rugs and create a simple, cozy hangout.

To the Rafters

And finally, the ceiling provides plenty of opportunity for fun customization. For an industrial look and a chic feel, leave the beams exposed and paint them. Pendant lights throughout are a great chance to get the lighting just right. You could go with a convenient drop-tile ceiling, but a more creative option would be to install a fun and airy canvas above.
