Are you thinking of remodeling your basement? Old or unfinished basements can be turned into beautiful, livable spaces that will benefit your family and home. If you live in a home where the basement is unfinished or not quite finished, then finishing your basement is a wonderful idea. If you live in a home where the basement is already finished and functional but you don’t really like how it is, then remodeling your basement would be a great next step. Here are some reasons why you should finish or remodel your basement.
1. Will give your home more space
When you finish your basement, your home will nearly double in size. Not only will you have the top-level to live and work in, but now you will have another level. Is your home cluttered? Do you just have too much going on upstairs? Finishing your basement will give you more space and help to clear out your upstairs.
Unfinished basements are often used for storage. As you finish and remodel your basement, you can still incorporate storage areas so that you don’t lose that precious space. Having a beautiful basement where you can entertain guests is much more functional than using all that space simply to put some boxes.
2. You can do whatever you want with your basement
Have you always wanted a home theater? Would you love to have a pool table and a game room? Do you have more kids than you have bedrooms? Are your kids always fighting over the television? Do you want to start working out but have no space for it? Do you work from home and need an office?
Any of these problems and more can be fixed when you finish and remodel your basement. You truly can turn your basement into whatever it is that will benefit your family the most. If that means adding another bedroom or two, then that is what you can do. If that means adding a bedroom and a theater or game room, then great. You can customize your basement however you like and have as many rooms as you want.
3. A finished basement will increase your home’s value
If you ever decide to sell your home, then having a finished basement will help you to get more money for it. Houses with finished basements are just worth more. And if your basement has a bedroom or bathroom, then that will help your home’s value even more. Potential buyers are probably looking for a home that needs minimal work and is already completely functional. Having a finished basement will impress your potential buyers and will help you sell your house faster.
4. Basements are a great place to store things
In addition to the rooms you decide to add to your basement, you can add plenty of storage space. Having a food pantry and a room for storage will help you clear out some stuff from upstairs and will help to declutter your life. You will still have everything you need, you just won’t have to see it every time you open a closet or look in the pantry.
Basements are also a great place for a laundry room. Having your laundry room in the basement will minimize the noise and will also give some more storage space. Rather than yelling over the sound of the washing machine or keeping your ‘laundry room’ in the garage, you can move it to the basement and enjoy the peace and quiet.
5. You can build a safe room
Do you worry about disasters or emergencies? The idea of having a ‘safe room’ where your family can hide in times of distress has become increasingly popular. More and more basements nationwide have begun featuring these safe rooms. Your basement would be a great place to build a safe room of your own in order to protect your family.
6. You can have an extra bathroom
Bathrooms are essential. They are one of the most used rooms in the house. Too often, though, spouses or siblings are in a constant war to use the bathroom. Getting ready in the mornings can be a hassle, especially when there is more than one person sharing the bathroom space and needing to use the shower, toilet, or mirror. If your kids fight over bathroom time, then having another bathroom in the basement may be the perfect solution.
You can turn your basement bathroom into a bathroom for the kids or a retreat for yourself with a large bathtub and scented candles. If you decide to build a bedroom in the basement, then having a bathroom as well as the next logical step. More bathrooms also add to your home’s value should you ever decide to sell it. No matter what, you won’t regret having another bathroom in your home.
7. You can turn it into an apartment
If you’re looking for a way to make some extra money, then turning your basement into a fully functional, livable apartment with a bedroom, bathroom, living area, and kitchen would be a great idea.
Once your basement has been turned into an apartment, you can rent it out to younger couples, college students, or anyone else. Charging rent will give you more income. You may have to spend quite a bit of money to convert your basement up front, but over time you will earn that money back and will then be making money off your basement remodel.
If you choose to do this, then you will want to include a door directly to the outside of your home from your basement. This will help you avoid those renting your basement coming into your own living space. Rather than sharing a front door, renters can just use the door that goes straight to the basement. Designing and planning an apartment in your basement will be a fun project and will guarantee that your basement will be used for a great, profitable purpose.
Remodeling your basement will give you the freedom to do whatever you want with that unused space. You can add a home theater, a gym, an office, a bedroom, or whatever else you want to your home. This will add value to your home should you ever decide to sell and will definitely be worth it.
Once you’ve decided to remodel your basement, you can begin planning and designing your space. It can be a lot of fun to see all the possibilities and choose exactly what you want to add to your home.
The biggest question when it comes to remodeling a basement is: how much is this going to cost?
The cost of a basement remodel will vary from home to home and will depend on lots of different factors. Some of the factors that will affect your cost are:
- How extensive is the remodel?
- Do you have to redo wiring and plumbing?
- What rooms are you building?
- How are your rooms designed?
- Who are you hiring to remodel it?
If your home’s basement has never been finished and you are starting from scratch, then finishing your basement will cost more than if your basement has been finished and you are just remodeling or updating your space.
If your basement is unfinished, then there probably isn’t much wiring and plumbing that can be used for your new basement. You will need to have this done, which will add another expense to the project.
If your basement remodel will be pretty basic and you are just adding a bedroom or another simple room, then that will cost less than if you are adding a kitchen that will require lots of appliances and intricate details.
The more things you want in your basement, the more expensive it will be to complete. If you want a kitchen, bathroom, pool table, mini bar, and television room, then you will be spending a lot more money than if you are building simple bedrooms and living spaces. If you are purchasing a lot of equipment and furniture, then you will spend more money. Basically, the more you buy, the more it will cost, just as with everything else in life.
Who you hire to remodel your basement will be one of the biggest factors in determining the price of the project. If you live in the Washington, Utah area, then hiring One Stop Construction and Remodel will get you professional service and quality work for a low, affordable price.
