Basements are often thought of as a cold, dark and damp place to store seasonal decorations and unused furniture. Aside from being a storage area, these large, open spaces typically go unused; which means families are missing out on a lot of additional footage of welcoming, usable space that can be enjoyed.
Remodeling the basement can transform a dark, cold concrete space into a warm and welcoming room where you can retreat for relaxation or entertaining. Here are four reasons why you should consider remodeling your basement.
Increasing the amount of living space can dramatically raise the value of your house. Typically adding a room to your home requires you to build a complete structure, including the foundation, roof and walls, but the structure of your basement is already constructed. This means you will be adding value to your home, but at a less expensive cost than many other remodeling jobs.
Remodeling the basement means you will get a whole new floor for your home and an increase in living space and increased living space equals an increase in your property’s current value as well as increase the resale value.
Room Design Options
Whether you need more space for family night or you need a quiet place to escape after family night, basement remodeling means you can turn that used space into a warm and welcoming space. Some of the ways to use a remodeled basement may include:
Reduced Energy Costs
If you have taken the time to properly insulate your attic, but are still noticing drafts and little change in your energy costs, basement remodeling can be the way to start reducing energy costs and eliminating drafts. Remodeling the basement means there will be insulation installed, flooring installed and the dampness eliminated. All of these measures will help to insulate your home from below the main living areas, which in turn will reduce your energy costs.
Eliminate Odors & Pests
An unfinished basement is a breeding ground for musty odors and moisture attracting pests. Unfinished basements are typically dark and damp, which attracts a wide range of pests, such as spiders, millipedes and rodents. The insulation and drywall will provide a barrier to the outside, ultimately eliminating the dampness as well as the pests. The added insulation and wall covering will also help to reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth, which means that the belongings you do store in the basement will be protected from the damage that is caused by mold and mildew.
The basement is typically the largest unused areas of a house. The size of a basement can range from a small square to an area that spans the entire length of your home. Basement remodeling will add a lot of livable space to your home, in many situations it can double the amount of living space. This additional space can be remodeled into one large area for anything from a family room to a home office or you can choose to separate the large space into a few different rooms; giving you even more options, such as an in-law suite. With a professional basement remodel, your options are almost limitless.
