You may currently just be using your basement for storage, or not using it at all, but that space has a lot of potential if you considering remodeling it. Remodeling your basement will not only increase the living space in your home, but it will also increase the value of your property. Think of the possibilities of using that space to enhance the overall function and design of your home.
Use your new remodeled basement as an additional bedroom. This option could be incredibly valuable if you plan on expanding your family or if you frequently have family and other guests that stay over. To be considered a bedroom, you have to include a closet and two forms of egress, like windows, doors, or a combination. If you ever plan to sell your home, the added bedroom will help increase your pool of potential buyers.
Having an additional bathroom that’s easier for guests to access will immediately increase the function of your home. It can be an expensive project but will ultimately pay for itself in the amount of value that it will add to your home. It’s great if you are handy enough to complete the project yourself to save money on labor, but it’s always a great idea to consult a professional team that will ensure quality work and advise you on functional design and layout options. Even if you don’t plan to use the rest of the basement as a bedroom or other entertainment space, the added bathroom will increase the function and value of your home.
If you’ve been thinking of ways to use your home to generate more income for your family, the basement could provide the perfect opportunity to make this dream a reality. Use the basement as a rental unit for college students or other people that aren’t looking for more than one bedroom. Keep in mind that your space will have to conform to fire codes and zoning laws. If it is in compliance with these statutes, this space will be a great added feature for your pockets as well as potential homebuyers in the future.
