Your basement is a large portion of your home. If it is sitting unfinished, you are missing out on several opportunities for space utilization and functionality. Finishing your basement may seem like an overwhelming home improvement project at first, but there are several financial and personal benefits waiting for you on the other side when it is finished. Let’s talk about why you should kickstart your basement remodeling home improvement project today!

Increase Home Value

Homeowners are always looking for ways to increase the value of their home. Basements don’t have to be dark, dusty rooms for storage. Finishing your basement is one of the most common ways to increase the value of your home, since you are creating an entirely new and livable space. Depending on how you choose to remodel, this could mean adding an additional bedroom, kitchen or bathroom – which makes a big difference for potential buyers if you decide to sell your home in the future.

Remodeling Ideas

Your unfinished basement is an empty canvas. Based on your unique design ideas and needs, it can be transformed in countless creative and functional ways. Have you always wanted a home theater room? Why not use your basement? Your basement is also a great place for a game room, living room, home gym, wet bar, master suite, in-law suite, office or dance studio. Design Build Remodeling Group has even transformed a basement into a residential hair salon! Finish your basement to give life to your home as a whole.

Second Income

If you opt to include its own kitchen, bathroom and laundry area – it can function as a separate apartment. If it is possible to implement a separate entryway, even better! This would present a great opportunity for you to rent the space out (without being bothered) and generate a second income. This money would quickly offset the cost of the remodeling itself. If you don’t see yourself renting the space out, consider the convenience of the area functioning as an in-law or master suite. By being able to house your family or guests yourself, you are saving them money by eliminating the need for a hotel or other arrangement.
