4 Reasons to Finish Your Basement
Finishing Your Basement for Added Value
Many Americans use their basements for storage or as a laundry room. What they might not realize, however, are the benefits they miss out on by letting this space go to waste. Remodeling your basement can add beautiful, functional square footage that will increase the value of your home and give you more room to grow. Here are the best reasons to start your renovation project now.
Benefits of a Finished Basement
- Best project value. There are lots of remodeling projects you can tackle, but none offer the same value as finishing your basement. Remodeling magazine compared costs and values of different living space additions and remodels, and basements won by a landslide. With a basement remodel, you don’t have to add any new structure – just walls, drywall, and flooring!
- Blank slate. Adding a bathroom or guest room is challenging because it can disrupt the flow of your house. With basements, you’re free to turn the space into whatever you like. It doesn’t have to match the flow, design, or function of any other room (unless you want it to).
- Improved home value. Finishing your basement is the easiest way to add usable living space to your home. And of course, the additional square footage adds to the value of your home.
- Energy efficiency. It’s easier to regulate temperatures in your basement since it’s underground. You’ll spend less energy keeping the basement space comfortable in all seasons, making it an ideal hangout for your family. Plus, you can opt for smarter choices, such as digital thermostats and LED lighting.
