There is so much benefit that comes with a finished basement. In fact, a finished basement can easily add some considerable value to your entire home. The reality is, a blank canvas of a basement can really do wonders for the value of your home once it’s remodeled and finished. Then, when it comes time to sell your humble abode, you can get the most bang for your buck. Maximizing the value of a finished basement may not be as confusing as you may think. Here is a helpful guide to ensure your finished basement can maximize the value of your entire home.
Using Hard Flooring Materials
Avoiding both expensive hardwood and moisture-trapping carpet in your basement is the best way to ensure you maximize the value of a finished basement. In fact, leaning into ceramic or porcelain tile flooring can really do wonders for the overall resale value of your home without risking significant flooring damage from moisture problems.
Installing Recessed Lighting
Another key component to an excellent finished basement is proper lighting. If you want to maximize the value of your humble abode, look into installing recessed lighting. In fact, the best way to combat the lack of natural light in a basement is with the use of either recessed lighting or exposing your ceilings — either way, you encourage more light to flow naturally throughout what would otherwise be a dark room. Just be sure to paint the exposed ceiling components a light color to keep the room feeling airy but polished.
Design and remodel your basement to suit a particular function. For example, your finished basement will look much more impressive as a place for entertainment with a wet bar. Or perhaps you envision a future of multi-generational living, so an in-law suite in the basement would be the perfect addition for you or a future homebuyer.
At the end of the day, adding value to your home is easier than you think. In fact, simply finishing an unfinished basement can really provide you with maximum selling potential leading to maximum dollars in your wallet. Getting your basement finished is a project that is well worth the cost. Fixing up your basement is a great way to boost your home’s value and add more space for everyone in your family to enjoy. However, being strategic about how you redo your basement is all too important as well.
