Tips for Organizing Your Home after a Basement Remodel
Take a minute to picture your ideal basement. What does it look like?
Do you envision the basement as a gathering place for friends and family?
Do you want your basement to be an in-law suite for guests, or a playroom for the kids?
Whether you use your basement for storage or to increase your home’s square footage and turn it into a living space, the space in your basement is full of hidden potential!
Increase Storage, Decrease Stress
After your remodel, it can be tough to get your home back to normal. Going through a basement remodel is always a challenge, but when the project is complete and you need to begin the process of putting all your belongings back in place, you’ll appreciate the flexibility that furniture with built-in storage will give you.
Consider your needs before and after you begin the renovation process and choose pieces that allow you to utilize the space you have. Come up with new ways to make up for space you don’t. Modern furniture not only keeps you organized but can be stylish and sleek as well.
Some fun choices for furniture with storage are:
- Built-in bookcases
- Coffee tables with built-in storage
- Open shelving
- Built-in cabinets
- Cubby systems
Keep Things Organized and Accessible
You can choose storage options that are attractive and useful that also turn your basement into the entertainment space you need for your family, or as the extra bedroom you’ve wanted for guests to enjoy.

Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!

We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI,
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
