BASEMENT FURNACE“We want to do a finished basement project, but we’re wondering what to do about the furnace that’s always a real eyesore. Is there anything you do in your basement remodel projects to make that part of the basement more appealing?”

Believe it or not, the concept of a finished basement isn’t that old. For many years, homes were built in a style in which the basement wasn’t intended to be finished. As a result, what you’d be left with a very rough and unfinished look. There was little care for concealing a furnace back then.

Times have changed. The furnace is not really meant to be seen, so at Skor Construction, we always try to hide the furnace, water heater, laundry sink and anything else that’s not very pleasing to the eye. At the same time, we want to allow for easy access if the furnace needs to be replaced.

Above all, our goal is to make the utility space of your basement look finished, visually appealing, or, if possible, move certain elements away from the rest of the finished basement to make the main space as large as possible.

If you’re located in the northwest suburbs of Chicago (Mount Prospect, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Des Plaines) and seeking to transform your basement into the most beautiful new space in the home, talk to Skor Construction today. We’re happy to meet with you to hear about your vision, answer your questions, walk through your current basement space and deliver an estimate you can live with toward building a basement you’ll be excited to live in.
