Orren Pickell is a top-rated Western Springs basement remodeling company.
In the past, basements were considered “catch-all” spaces that may be there for the family to enjoy but weren’t meant for entertainment. In many cases, basements were often large unfinished (or underfinished) spaces that may include a kids’ playroom, perhaps a laundry room, and then some area for storage.
These days, homeowners see basement space for what it truly is: a fantastic way to add functionality, space, and value to your home. And if you’re ready to transform your basement from underwhelming to extraordinary, the Orren Pickell Building Group can help. As Western Springs top-rated basement remodeling contractor, we’re the firm that your friends and neighbors rely on to improve their basement spaces.
What do you want your basement to be? Do you need to transform it into a light-filled studio, complete with a small kitchen, full bath, and separate bedroom to accommodate aging parents? Are you interested in adding a wine cellar with custom shelving to safely and beautifully store and display your extensive wine collection? Or do you want to create several different spaces — including a home gym, media room, and playroom — so that your entire family can enjoy different activities in the same area?
Regardless of your reason for basement remodeling or the type of space you want to create, the Orren Pickell Building Group can help you make it happen. Our expert design and construction team have helped homeowners in Western Springs and throughout the area to create basements that wow — basements that are just as comfortable, beautiful, and luxurious as every other room in your home.
