There are several benefits to having a finished basement including increasing the amount of usable space, having a flexible room and increasing the value of your home. However, there are also other benefits that you may not have considered. When real estate is at a premium, it is more economical to renovate an existing space instead of adding space. Some benefits of remodeling your basement that you may not be aware of are added convenience, health and safety and comfort.
A finished basement space adds functionality and can be a surprisingly valuable addition to your everyday living. Adding another floor to your house gives you the ability to host more guests and create extra storage space. The possibilities are endless, and one option is to add another bathroom which can greatly increase the ease and convenience of your daily life. Many use their finished basement as a guest suite or place for long visits from family and friends.
Finished basements often provide a space that is usually cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Using your remodeled basement as a family room with cozy nights by the fire or as bedroom that stays cool all summer long will save you some heating and cooling expenses as well. The basement can be a quite comfortable –and economical- place to spend time.
Health and Safety
Many unfinished basements are damp and moldy. Finishing your basement will help eliminate these areas because most entry points for moisture are repaired and closed. This not only can have long term positive implications on your family’s health, but it can also improve the overall condition of your house.
If you are considering a home renovation or upgrade project, think about the positive impacts on your life and added convenience factors that a finished basement can provide.
