Basement Remodeling in VA

Need more living space to your home, but not a whole addition?

Finishing your basement is an ideal way to increase your living space without major disruption of your everyday life—and it is typically less expensive than adding an addition onto your existing house.

Hambleton Construction can help you turn idle space into a place to relax and rejuvenate. We can rearrange walls, cut out new windows, install recessed lighting, and add an extra bedroom or bathroom.

Finished Basement Ideas

The first step to realizing your basement’s potential is to decide how you want to use the space.

Of course, you don’t have to choose just one option!

We can remodel your Virginia basement into one or any combination of these spaces:


Family room or recreation room

Imagine a spacious, yet cozy and comfortable room (or suite of rooms!) where the family can relax, play games, watch movies, or otherwise just spend quality time together.

Home theater or media/entertainment space

A finished basement is perfect for relegating video game consoles and other media, so that those who want to use them can do so without disrupting the rest of the household. And of course, movie nights are a lot more fun in a home theater complete with comfy chairs, a big screen, and a popcorn machine!


When kids’ toys start taking over your décor, it’s time to build a playroom! Give the little ones their own space to play and imagine, while keeping the upper level tidy. When your kids get older, the room can be repurposed.


Guest quarters

Impress your guests with a well-appointed suite. We can build extra bedrooms and baths in your finished basement, along with a mini-kitchen and other amenities, to indulge guests or long-term visitors. The bonus here is that you will no longer have to disrupt your routine to make room for company.


Home gym or studio space for dance or exercise

Save time and effort by getting your blood pumping at home! A finished basement can be a perfect spot for a home gym (with ellipticals, treadmills, stationary bikes, etc.), weight room, yoga space, or other exercise options.


Craft or hobby space

Let’s face it; it’s a pain to have to clear space on the dining room table or living room floor to indulge your creative side. We can custom-build space for your most beloved hobbies: crafting, sewing, painting, sculpting, scrapbooking and card making, model train building, collecting, and more. Imagine having easily accessible storage for all your tools and materials! We can make it happen.

Home office or workspace

If you work from home, you know that in order to be productive, it’s crucial to have a workspace that is clearly delineated from your “home space.” Heading downstairs to your basement office might be the most effective way to create that line!


Entertainment space

A bar, a mini-kitchen, and comfortable seating are just the start. We can customize your finished basement for game nights, big family get-togethers, informal wine-and-cheese parties—or whatever you wish!

How Long Does a Basement Remodel Take?

The length of a basement finishing project depends on several factors, including scope of the job, current state of the basement, availability of materials, and other variables.

When we give you your estimate, we will also give you an accurate range of when you can expect the basement to be completed.
