5 Benefits of Remodeling your Basement

Oct 5, 2016 | Home Improvement


Dreaming of a finished basement for your home? Here some reasons why you should get it done!

Football season is in full swing and people all around the country are taking to their finished basements to binge watch all the football they can on Sundays. Wait, you don’t have a finished basement? A basement remodel can give you so much more than just a new place to watch football. Here are 5 benefits of remodeling your basement.

Tremendous Value

No other project designed to increase the living space in your home is more cost-effective than remodeling your basement. You won’t need to add walls or a foundation – the basic structure of your basement is already in place.

Let Your Creativity Run Wild

When you add a room to your home, you generally don’t have much room for designing and decorating. Most people want new additions to blend in as much as possible with their existing home, so that means decor and design tend to stick with what’s already there. But your basement is separate from the rest of your home, in a sense, so you can decorate it in any way you see fit!

Adding Tons of Space

Remodeling your basement adds a lot of living space to your home. In fact, the average remodel will increase your living space by a third! Other additions to your home certainly won’t add as much livable space to your home.

Add to Your Home’s Resale Value

While remodeling projects shouldn’t be done just for the addition to a home’s resale value alone, some projects will return more on the initial investment than others. And remodeling your basement offers a great way to add to your home’s resale value because it will make your home more attractive to potential buyers down the road.

A Comfortable Place to Just Hang Out

If your basement remodeling is done right, the basement can become the most comfortable place in your home. Easily warmed, easily cooled, decorated just the way you want… the possibilities are endless!
