When you think about a home renovation, what do you think of first? Kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms are all popular choices, but what about your basement? Basement remodeling and finishing is the perfect way to extend your style into every corner of your home. As general contractors, we have some ideas on how finishing or remodeling your basement can open up possibilities for you and your family.
Add Living, Entertaining, or Personal Space
Whether your basement becomes a second space for the whole family or a safe space just for you, the possibilities are endless! Home Advisor reports that the average basement remodel can bring in almost a 70% return on investment. Not only will remodeling your basement add value to your home, but it will also create additional space for you to create memories.
Maximize Your Utility Space
Many homeowners choose to use their basement as a home gym or bring the laundry room downstairs to maximize on space upstairs. General contractors will work with you to make sure the space is designed to be used to its full potential. Don’t feel like you have to do one particular thing with your basement – it’s your area to explore.
Get Inspiration for the Rest of Your Home
You never know what inspiration might strike while you’re working on your basement remodel. Home remodeling often spills over into the rest of the house – around 35% of all remodeling jobs involve the entire home. If you really like the look and feel of your basement, it might be time to extend that vibe into the rest of the home.
Play Around with Texture, Light, and Space
Basements are often thought of as dark and dingy without a lot of room for inspiration. However, general contractors tend to see potential in basements and what possibilities may be hidden there. A basement is a great place to play around with natural light or expressive light fixtures. You can also have fun with wall textures, storage options, and flooring choices. Your basement doesn’t have to be out of sight, out of mind. Even though it’s not the first thing your guests will see, it has the potential to be the only thing they think about when they leave.
