Are you considering turning your basement into a home gym? The team at Home Improvements Unlimited LLC can remodel your basement into an amazing home fitness center you’ll want to use every day. Learn more about how we can expertly do this by following the four steps below.
1. Waterproof Your Basement
Before you even begin to set up your new home fitness center, you need to make sure your basement is free of water leaks. Any water damage can cause costly destruction to this newly constructed space. At Home Improvement, our team can seal all leaks and make any other repairs as necessary. If not done right the first time, it can lead to expensive repairs in the future.
2. Update Wall & Floor Coverings
The degree of updating will depend on how much construction has been done in your basement. If need be, we can completely gut out the floors and walls and start from scratch, or we can simply add a fresh coat of paint or lay down new linoleum or carpet. If you plan on using weights and heavy equipment, you’ll want to choose the flooring that works best with these items. Carpeting and rubber flooring are both ideal options for a home gym.
3. Upgrade Ventilation & Lighting
Consider upgrading the ventilation and the lighting for this new basement space. Recessed lighting will work great here, as it will help make the room seem more bright and airy. Because you’ll be working up a sweat in your new home fitness center, you’ll want the ability to control the temperature as well as the air circulation. We can install a separate HVAC system in the basement specifically for this purpose.
4. Choose Your Gym Equipment
Once you’ve got the space set up the way you’d like, it’s time to choose and install your gym equipment. Of course, this all depends on what you’d like to do. There are treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines, free weights, and dumbbells. You may also want a TV, speaker system, water cooler, shelf for towels, and any other accessories you think would be helpful for your workouts.
