Photography has always been a booming industry.

If you are looking to break into the market or you’re a seasoned professional looking to up your game, your basement is the perfect spot for a brand new photo studio. Talk to a Calgary basement renovation company about turning your unfinished basement into a studio equipped with the best in colourful backdrops, built in lighting, and enough closet storage for all of your props and equipment. Your at home photo studio can also be the first step to running your own business. If you can find a way to get paid to do what you love, isn’t that the definition of success?

If you love photography but you have a flare for anything vintage, kick it old school by having Alliance Renovations install your very own dark room. If there’s anything better than taking amazing photos, it’s developing them in the comfort of your own home.

The Seamstress

There was a point in time when it was actually cheaper to make your own clothes than to buy them. While that may no longer be the case, old habits die hard. Whether you’re a seasoned seamstress or looking to add some originality to your wardrobe, a Calgary renovation company can transform your unfinished basement into a room ‘sew’ perfect, you’ll never have to worry about running out of space for on the go projects or last minute mending.

The Painter

You’ve graduated from art school and you want to keep your creative juices flowing. Renting out gallery and studio space is expensive and inconvenient. Painting at home has the benefit of convenience but the curse of disaster. The kitchen may have the best light in the house but what happens when your acrylic paints get on the white table cloth or stain your hardwood floors. Imagine a studio that’s just downstairs where mess isn’t an issue and light can be adjusted. Contact basement renovation specialists when you’re ready to turn your basement into a worry free workshop of your own. If you’re a more contemporary artist, be sure to talk to Alliance Renovations about giving you a space to do balloon dart painting or leaving the white walls up to your imagination – literally a blank canvas for you to fill in with your own creativity.

The Writer

Maybe you’ve never held a paintbrush in your life but you can paint breathtaking images with your words. Some writers require silence, stark white walls and total zen in order to plot the next best seller and others require total stimulation of the senses. Regardless of what side of the spectrum you are on, every writer has dreamt of a space all their own. With the help of local Calgary based basement developers, transform your wasted basement space into a cozy and conventional writing nook and who knows, you might just become the next J.K. Rowling.

The Crafter

There is something completely admirable about the patience required to stab something with a needle a thousand times in order to create a beautiful piece of art. Cross stitching, crocheting and needle pointing may be tedious but In an age where shabby chic is totally in style and the world of etsy is exploding, casual hobbies can be great money makers as well. The only problem is space. If you’re a typical crafter, you may also be something of a  . . . . collector. Whether it’s needles and thread, paper and scissors, knick knacks and whatnots, you’re going to need somewhere for all of your treasures to go.
