Are you searching for more usable space in your home? Are you desperately seeking more storage and struggling to find it? Do you have a family room where every member of your family truly enjoys spending time? A finished basement might be the perfect solution for you! Basement remodeling is a fantastic way to add value and livable space to your home. Here are five of the biggest benefits of a finished basement. Add a New Bedroom
If your family is expanding or you have a college student moving back home, using your finished basement as an additional bedroom is a perfect solution. If you are preparing to sell your home and willing to invest in basement remodeling to raise your home’s value, you could add one or two bedrooms to your home without needing to build an addition.
Boost Your Home’s Value
A finished basement, even if it isn’t made into bedrooms or bathrooms, adds value to your home. On average, a basement remodeling project will give you an amazing 70-75% return on your investment. Remember, when planning your finished basement, that this project will really help give your home value a boost.
Add Recreation Space
Many homeowners use a finished basement as a place for a family room. You can add a few couches and a play area for the children and have a space that everyone wants to use. Enjoy watching sports together? Add a small bar area and a big screen to watch the game on.
It’s a Blank Slate
Unlike bedrooms, a finished basement is a wide open canvas for you to utilize. Most basements are large, rectangular rooms without more walls or borders for you to work around. Whether you want to add a movie theater or a place for your pinball collection, your finished basement is a blank slate for you to work on.
Boost Your Energy Efficiency
Do you wish that you used green building materials or energy star rated appliances in your bathroom? A finished basement is a perfect place to maximize your energy efficiency and turn over a green leaf. You can add insulation for better heat retention or use air sealing to block air from escaping.
