What Are the Benefits of a Summer Basement Remodel?

By fiderioandsons Jul 6, 2015

In Connecticut, a finished basement can offer a homeowner several distinct benefits, including an increase in home storage options, energy convservation, and home value protection. For many homeowners, a finished basement is the best-kept secret for storage expansion. Basement remodeling can transform your lackluster basement space into an entertainment area with a kitchenette, a wet bar, comfortable couches and chairs and a big-screen TV; an extra bedroom and bathroom, or a kid’s playroom. With the help of an experienced contractor, you can explore an array of possibilities to fit your needs. In this post we will discuss the benefits for remodeling your basement this summer.

Reduced Energy Bills

During the summer, the basement is, by far, the coolest space in the house. By making your basement area livable, you can save some money in air conditioning costs when the weather is hot.

More Opportunities For Organization & Storage

Let’s face it: most unfinished basements are merely a warzone of cluttered unopened boxes, broken furniture, and forgotten Christmas decorations. Finishing your Connecticut basement not only offers  the opportunity to increase your home’s living space, but you can also finally add storage for all of your belongings. For instance, you can add shelving, cabinets and other storage options so it is easier to maintain all of your extraneous belongings.

Worthwile Return On Investment

Though many basements in Connecticut are unfinished storage areas,  many homeowners are discovering that their basement can be repurposed. Remodeling the basement of an average home has a higher ROI than the same upgrade for a luxury home, likely because the extra finished space is more sorely needed in smaller homes. Consider converting your basement into a guest area, game room, gym, or home office.

Consider this: finishing your home’s basement will add additional living space to your home, allowing your home’s overall value to increase. Most projects that add space to your home have the ability to add value as well, and finishing your basement greatly increases the livable square footage of your home.
