Your basement is usually one of the largest rooms in your home- don’t let it become an unused room full of boxes and old furniture. A finished basement can serve as a room for anything you need- a playroom for the kids, a TV-watching and bar area for the adults, a charming home movie theatre, or a family room for everyone to enjoy. If your basement is unfinished or isn’t being used to its fullest potential, take a look at our list of the top five benefits of remodeling your basement.
Did you know that a basement remodel project is one of the most cost-effective projects designed to increase livable space? Since adding a room to your home typically requires building a foundation, walls, and roof, the basement is the best room to remodel since the structure already exists.
When adding a room to your home on the main living floor, you have to keep in mind the design of the whole household. If you add a bathroom or bedroom, you don’t want the room to feel completely separate from the rest of your home, so the decor must blend with the design throughout your home. However, your basement is a different level and is often seen as unattached from the rest of the home. You’re able to be creative with your decorating choices, and have the freedom to design the remodeled basement however you’d like!
Large Amount Of Space
When completing additions or remodels of other rooms, you may gain a little more space in your home, but it’s often not a tremendous amount of livable space. A basement, however, provides a significant amount of space and can increase your living space by about a third- or in some cases, the project can nearly double a home’s livable space.
A basement is often a place for friends to gather and watch TV, or for children to play with enough room to run around. The basement is one of the most easily heated and cooled rooms in the home, so it makes the perfect area to relax and feel comfortable. While you may not be able to picture your dark, empty basement becoming your favorite place in your home, a good basement remodel will completely change the area- for the better!
