Is it finally time to take care of that cellar and convert it into a place you actually want to be? Do you no longer want your cellar to be a castle for spiders? Then it's time to take control over lower storeys and create an environment for people to thrive in.
Many of us remember our teenage room in the cellar. It was there that you could play your music and hang out with your friends without disturbing everyone else too much. For others, it was the perfect TV room where the sun never reflected in the screen. But for many, it's been one big storage area – possibly outfitted with a washing machine and the old boiler.
Transform with basic means
By just freshening up the walls with new paint and laying a floor, you get an entirely new environment. If the room doesn't have too many angles and nooks, you can easily lay the floor in a day. Both parquet and laminate flooring can be installed with Pergo's handy click function. You don't have to worry about nails, screws and glue and don't need any advanced tools.
The subfloor is often made of concrete. If so, remember to lay a moisture barrier before you lay the flooring. If the subfloor has small unevennesses here and there, a liner is enough to even them out. Regardless of whether you choose parquet or laminate you can readily combine it with floor heating.
