A chill is in the air, winter weather is just around the corner, and many people are opting to stay indoors. But when there are too many people in the same space, a home can begin to feel crowded and uncomfortable. One solution: consider finishing or remodeling your basement!
1. Finishing or remodeling a basement provides more usable space for gathering. Kids and relatives are coming home for the holidays, and the extra space is great for spreading out.
2. It also gives you options to create your dream space! You can add an extra bedroom for guests. Create a workout space to detox in after a long day. Add a playroom for the kids. You can even create an apartment space to rent out to tenants! No matter what you do with the space, you can also decorate it to fit your style.
3. In addition to the extra space, a basement remodel can increase the value of your home. The type of changes you make to your basement will determine the value added. Appraisers often look for quality in basement remodels, so it’s important to get a professional remodel, whether it’s done by you or a contractor. They also compare your home to others in the area. If the remodel is done well, a finished basement can be a big selling point for future buyers.
A basement remodel or finish is a great option. You get the benefit of creating a dream space for you and your family to gather in the cold weather. You can also add value to your home. It’s a win-win situation!
