The best basements are born from careful planning.


JM starts by analyzing the size of your basement. We look at the total square footage and number of rooms in your basement. We will ask if you are happy with the existing layout. Maybe you are interested in modifying the layout of your basement to create more rooms or more space. Careful planning ensures that you will fall in love with your new basement.


Next is deciding on the intended use of your new basement. If you are looking to entertain in your basement, we will suggest popular features like a Home Theater System, a Wet Bar, and a Game Room. JM also offers Custom Built-In Cabinets to provide storage while enhancing the design of your basement.


JM will carefully plan every detail so your basement is customized to your tastes. We will recommend styles, color palettes, materials, flooring, lighting, trim, doors, and more to design the basement of your dreams.
