Ron Nanberg | Tue, Feb 5, 2013 | Basement Remodeling

Thought remodeling the basement meant some new drywall, carpet, and a fresh coat of paint? Think again. KBU has been doing basement and general home remodeling in Chicago for years. And, when it comes to the family’s lowest level, we bring our expertise in cabinetry to serve a number of classic basement features:

Home Bar Cabinetry

If you’re developing an entertainment space in your basement, then a home bar could be the perfect hub of action. Our custom cabinetry can give your home bar a unique design that works within your space.

Speaking of home bars, why not take things one step further with a kitchenette? Whether you want a basic sink, microwave, and dishwasher setup or a full kitchen, we can work to exceed your expectations.

Entertainment Units

A lot of our home remodeling projects in Chicago require custom-built entertainment centers. Whether you know exactly what your vision is or are open to suggestions, one of our designers will be happy to build an entertainment center that’s forward-thinking and visually stunning.

Built-in Bookcases

Built-in bookcases are great space savers and add texture and interest to otherwise bland basement walls. Have special items you’d like displayed? We can build custom cabinets to showcase any collection or library.



Storage Benches

Any basement can be made a little cozier when you add a storage bench or two. These hinged benches raise to reveal storage room for blankets, games, movie collections, and more.

Recessed Desks

Plan on using your basement as a workspace? Why not build a desk into the wall? Another great space-saving idea that can add character to your basement.

Hidden Toy Storage

Families who do home remodeling in Chicago have to always be thinking about the kids, too. If your basement is going to be a play area for the kids, why not build in some hidden toy storage space?
