When remodeling, a lot of people overlook their basement. The bathroom and the kitchen are arguably the most popular rooms to remodel but the basement holds more value than most realize. With long snow days just around the corner, the basement just might be the spot where you'll want to get stuck this season. It doesn t only have to be used for storage but rather a room to get the family doing something together.
Let your imagination run wild and enjoy the benefits of your basement transformation.
Here are a few benefits to remodeling your basement:
1. A finished basement can save energy and money- An "unfinished" basement is when it's damp, cold, and overall just uncomfortable to be in a for a long time. Also an un-insulated basement can create a build-up of radon gases and a large energy loss from exposed ductwork. A "finished" basement protects your home from harmful mold and wear, creating a safe and pleasant atmosphere that isn't stuffy or humid.
2. Nurturing your creativity and your family's hobbies- Unlike the other rooms of your house, the basement doesn't have to follow a certain design or pattern scheme. It can look and be anyway you want. If you want bright red walls with a pool table and bar top, you can. If you want a large, quiet office with tons of leg room and a comfy couch, you can. If you want a family room with a funky carpet and a fireplace to relax by, you can. With all the space the basement offers it can be anything you want it to be.
3. Improve your home's resale value- According to the annual Cost vs. Value Report released by Remodeling Magazine, basement remodeling can return about 72.8% of the original cost. A remodeled basement will not only be fun for you and your family but will add an attractive touch to potential buyers.
