Should you have your basement remodeled? If you want to add more space to your home in the most cost effective way possible then the answer is yes. If your basement is unfinished at the present time, having your basement remodeled is an excellent way to utilize the space. That’s why finishing a basement is at or near the top of the list of the most popular home improvement projects across New England. However, there is another important aspect that you may not be thinking about. When you have your basement remodeled it will add a significant amount of value to your property.
Although you may not be planning to sell your home in the near future, adding value wherever you can is always a good thing. The more equity you have in your home the wealthier you are. If you are planning to sell your home soon or within the next five (5) years, the living space that you add by having your basement remodeled will attract more home buyers because it’s a much sought after home improvement project that’s already completed. In addition to adding to the value of your home, a basement remodeling project will also add a completely versatile space to your property.
In essence, there are a plethora of ways that you can utilize your finished basement. Adding a full or even half bathroom provides even more flexibility. For example, you can use the space as a spare bedroom. Some homeowners add a full bath and small kitchen and turn their basements into an in-law suite or even a rental unit. Other popular uses include a home office, which is getting even more popular since we’re now in the work from home era. You can also turn your basement or part of your basement into a family room or playroom for the children.
Many of our clients have their basements remodeled in order to turn it into a movie theater, man cave, or bar. The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to basement remodeling. Adding value and space to your home are not the only positive aspects of having your basement remodeled. Many homeowners are unaware of this, but a finished basement will help your home become far more energy efficient, which is good for both your bank account and the environment. Most unfinished basements lack the proper amount of insulation if they are insulated at all.
Did you know that an unfinished basement that doesn’t have enough insulation allows air to escape. That means your home is losing heat in the winter months and air conditioning in the summer months. The good news is that when you have your basement remodeled the contractor will add the proper amount of insulation. That way, the air can’t escape.
