Remodeling a basement is a goal many first time home buyers want to accomplish after settling into a new home. After major upgrades in kitchens, bathrooms, or bedrooms, home owners set their eyes on the untapped potential of an unfinished basement. For those of you in the Capitol Region with an unfinished basement wondering about all the possibilities, here are a few popular choices:
Extra Bedroom: For young families in starter homes, space can sometimes be an issue. As your family expands so does your need for square footage. An unfinished basement is a perfect area for an extra bedroom. This will provide long term value to your home, as it should increase the worth of the property.
Family Room: A family room is a great extra benefit to a growing family. Having an area where you can watch TV and the kids can play freely greatly reduces the stress of cleaning up other common areas of your home. A basement is the perfect area for a family room as it is separated from the rest of your home.
Movie Room: Are family movie nights a popular entertainment choice for you and your family? If so a movie theater in your basement is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Many people believe this to be a huge cost. But after you finish your basement, the remaining cost lays in the purchasing of chairs, couches, and a projector. If having a home theater has been a dream of yours, you might be closer than you think.
Storage Area: For growing families, storage is always hard to come by. If you have an unfinished basement, there are unlimited storage options. We can design shelves, and other storage areas to de-clutter the rest of your home. This can also be a great place to put a washer and dryer combo, or an area to work on small projects.
There are many other additional options when it comes to finishing a basement.
