Many homeowners spend years in a home with an unfinished basement. For reasons such as cost and time, these homes remain empty and mundane rather than cozy spaces that capitalizes on the original floor plan. Whether you’re looking for extra space to entertain or need more room for guests, unfinished basements are a blank slate of possibility. Here are our five reasons to finish your basement.
- Increase Value
While the upfront cost of finishing a basement scares off homeowners, it’s important to look a little further. A finished basement significantly increases the value of your home. The renovation can often include increasing the livable square footage of your home. This automatically increases the resale value. Also, depending on the renovation and design, finished basements that include kitchenettes, bathrooms, bedrooms, and more, further increase the value of your home.
- Expand Your Space
Another benefit of finishing your basement is the amount of space you’ll gain in your home. A basement not only adds functionality but it’s extra living space for your family. From home theater rooms to exercise rooms, these spaces can transform your current home into the home you’ve dreamt of for years. The extra square footage you gain from finishing your basement is invaluable space where you can create.
When homeowners consider finishing their basement, one of their top priorities is creating a space in their home dedicated to entertainment. Whether your teenagers desire a space for them to bring friends or you want to throw birthday parties in your own home, your finished basement is the perfect place. Forget about taking everything you own to the park for a party, your home is the best place to entertain your friends and family (and everything you need will be right where you need it).
- Extra Storage
Another benefit of finishing your basement is the extra storage you’ll gain. While an unfinished basement is often home to an eclectic storage space full of unorganized boxes, a finished basement provides a dedicated storage space. Depending on your needs and wants, attractive and functional shelving can be installed. Imagine an extra laundry room or a workshop, your basement is exactly what you need.
