• Great customer service. Cabinets arrived quickly and were very easy to assemble. I could not find similar quality RTA Kitchen Cabinets at lower price anywhere else.

  • I was skeptical about buying kitchen cabinets online but after speaking with Eugene and receiving cabinet samples I decided to buy Cream Maple rta cabinets from Craftsmen Network. I enjoyed the high end features that these cabinets offer. Total price was about 30% lower than big box store quotes.

  • Free shipping made all the difference. Cabinets are great and assembly was easy. I can't wait when we finish our kitchen renovation.

For those who have a basement it is well known that remodeling a basement is one of the greatest ways to add living space to your home. Many people have unfinished basements that are little more than dark and damp storage areas. By using a basement remodeling calculator you can determine what features you can afford and which ones you cannot.

If your basement is not finished out into a livable space then you are not utilizing the space of your home to the best of your ability. There is no need for using the basement for storage only when it can be made into a livable area that the whole family can enjoy. You can go online and find a calculator that will keep up with the renovations you wish to make and the calculator will provide you with a running total at all times.

The first thing you want to do to your basement is to seal it so that it is waterproof. This is a fairly simple process and can be done by anyone who can use a paint roller and paint brush. It is also a fairly inexpensive project so you might want to do this project before you begin adding things to your calculator. Sealers can be applied to the block walls that prevent moisture from seeping through the blocks. Most people will prefer to paint over the sealer to get a finished look. Others may even consider coving the sealed blocks with paneling or drywall.

Once your basement is sealed it is then time to determine what it is you want to do with the space. This is where the calculator will come in handy because it will help you determine what you can afford. Many companies also provide you with free tips and suggestions. This is a great way for you to get ideas about how you want your finished basement to look.

Because your basement is usually below ground you will want to consider heating and cooling costs and ways to heat and cool the space once it is finished. Cooling the area is usually not a big deal since basements rarely get very hot. Heating is the biggest concern because the basement is always the coolest part of the house. When you are figuring your costs with your calculator you should look for suggestions to heat the area efficiently. With the cost of electricity and gas on the rise you might want to do some research and find the most efficient ways to keep the area comfortable. This may be an added expense upfront but will pay off later.

There are so many ways to remodel a basement that only you can decide how you want to use the space. Perhaps you would want to use the basement for day sleeping or for entertaining. The sky is usually the limit when it comes to basement remodeling ideas. By using your calculator you will be able to determine what will fit into your budget and this may help you determine how you want to complete the space.

A basement remodeling calculator is a great tool to help you determine your remodeling costs and it will help you determine which features you can afford and which ones you cannot. Using the calculator is a great way to help you stay within your budget.
