If you live in a house with an unfinished basement, chances are you have considered taking on the project of finishing the basement. Remodeling and finishing a basement creates more living space, storage, and increases your home’s value!
Finishing and remodeling your basement creates more living space for your family and friends. Adding a family room can be a major addition for families of any size. Typically a finished basement will have at least one guest bedroom, which can double as an office when you don’t have guests. A benefit of remodeling to finish your basement is that you get to be the designer – you decide the layout, flooring, doors, etc.
A finished basement adds living space and also entertaining space. Adding a big screen TV for movie nights or game days can be an exciting new feature for homeowners with unfinished basements. Consider building a small kitchenette if you plan on entertaining often. This will help save you and your guests from having to go up and down stairs to get food and drinks.
Finishing your basement helps you create more organized storage space – key word: organized. An unfinished basement has lots of room for storage bins and miscellaneous household items, but a finished basement can create cabinets and shelving units.
Resale value for any home that has an unfinished basement and chooses to finish it dramatically increases. Also consider that if you ever sell your home, future homeowners might only look for a house that has a finished basement.
Although finishing a basement is a MAJOR project, if you hire a reputable Minneapolis remodeling contractor like Snap Construction, the project can be completed smoothly, allowing you to enjoy your new living space sooner.
