Basement finishing not only adds tons of additional living and entertaining space, but it also adds value to your home. In fact, basement remodeling is perhaps the most effective form of home expansion. While there are many reasons to consider when redesigning your basement, here are four reasons why you should finish your basement:
For the same square footage, it is less expensive to refinish your basement than it is to add a new addition to your house. When you take into consideration the costs and increased home footprint, you can get the same additional space at a fraction of the cost when you remodel your basement. Plus, unlike some other remodeling projects, basement finishing not only makes your home more attractive, but it also increases the quality of life for all who inhabit the home by adding additional livable space.
A basement remodel typically returns about 70% of the original cost to finish it, so you can get a valuable return on your investment when you finish your basement. For example, if you start off with a 2,500-square foot home, but then finish the basement, you could gain upwards of 1,250 additional square feet. That's a 50% increase in the space of your home. The market value of your home will increase considerably as well, and that added living space will make your home more enticing to potential buyers.
As we mentioned before, when it comes to the functional uses of a basement, the possibilities are truly endless. Think kids' play areas, home gyms, an office space, laundry room, entertainment space, guest suites, and much more. Most of the other rooms in your home already have a set purpose, like a kitchen or a bathroom. Basement remodeling offers the greatest variety of options than any other area in your home. Plus, you don't just have to choose only one idea. Most basements are large enough to combine several different areas into one fun and functional space.
Imagine if you walked into someone's home and they had a bathroom or bedroom they weren't using at all. It would seem silly to not utilize that space in any home, right? Now think of your basement in the same way. While it's unfinished, it's basically a wasted space. It’s already there so why not make it more functional so you can start using the space? We can help you eliminate the wasted space in your home and turn it into something that's beautiful, functional, and livable.
Like we've been saying all along, basements are incredibly versatile. We understand that any home renovation is an investment, and this space is going to be with you for many years to come. That's why we want you to dream big. Here are just a few ideas for a new basement:
