Moving into a new home or even just remodeling the one you’ve already been in opens up so many creative possibilities. You have the opportunity to customize your home anyway you want and really make it your own. While an unfinished basement may seem like more of a hassle than anything else, it can be a really fun project. Here are four reasons to finish your basement.
While an unfinished basement is typically used to store those extra items you can’t bring yourself to throw away, you could actually increase the storage space by finishing it. This is because it allows you to organize the storage space and make full use of the basement. You could install shelving or purchase storage closets to utilize the wall space you have. This keeps things off of the floor, which is beneficial in a basement where a lot of moisture can accumulate.
Whether you are growing your family and need more room or just always wanted an entertainment room, a finished basement allows you to add more rooms to your home. You can add another bathroom, bedroom, or family room, depending on what your needs are. This gives you more space without actually having to add on to your home. You could even consider renting out a fully finished basement and make some money to compensate for what you spent on remodeling.
A finished basement can add a lot of value to your home. This is because the potential home buyers don’t have to worry about investing the money in finishing the basement themselves since you’ve already done it. It is estimated that you can get back about 70% of what you put into finishing your basement when it comes time to sell your home.
Because moisture tends to build up in the basement and it tends to be the coolest area of the home, your energy bills can increase when you have to worry about heating up your home. A finished basement gets rid of all that excess space and you can add insulation to help adjust the temperature of the basement to one that is more comfortable. This means that your heater won’t have to work as hard to keep your basement warm.
