For those of you with a list of home improvement tasks (a few you’ve assigned yourself, and a lot your spouse has assigned you), chances are that a finished basement hovers somewhere near the top. It’s a task that pays off: a finished basement remodeling project can compliment your house in ways you might not even imagine.
But why should you remodel your basement? Well, the reason is simple: a finished basement remodeling project can bring your house to a whole new level.
Three Reasons to Remodel your Basement:
Basement Remodel: Return on Investment
Basement remodeling adds valuable living space without increasing your home’s footprint. A basement remodeling project offers a high return on your investment.
If you’re looking to increase the size of your home, the answer might be right beneath your feet. Remodeling unused basement space is a good way to gain living area without building an addition. A finished basement remodel is also a good investment. According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report, a basement remodeling project returns more than 75% of the original cost, based on national averages.
Basements are good for remodeling projects because the basic structure – walls and floors – are already in place. This lowers construction costs per square foot, which saves 10-15% over the cost of building an addition with comparable features and amenities.
Increased Value of Your Home
Finished basement remodeling increases the value of your house. You might be planning on staying in your house forever, but things change. If you get a different job, want to be closer to your family, or find yourself retiring to Florida, your house will likely need to go onto the market. A house with a finished basement will almost always sell higher than a house with an unfinished basement. Perhaps your finished basement has a spare bedroom, game room, extra bathroom, or setup and wiring for a home theater. No matter the setup, a finished basement is the icing on the house’s cake for many homebuyers.
A Place to Escape
A finished, remodeled basement provides a place for escape. Everyone could use a little time to relax, reflect, or engage in an old-fashioned nap. No one wants to do this in an unfinished basement – the thoughts of spiders crawling in your hair is enough to spike your blood pressure! A finished basement is an ideal environment for this kind of practice. It’s nice and cool during the summer, and it’s a good place to curl up in a blanket during the winter. A remodeled basement gives you the best chance of dodging interruptions: if you are super quiet, maybe nobody will find you.
Keep an Eye on Your Kids
Kids, particularly teenagers, prefer to spend time away from home. The arcade, the mall, or a friend’s house may seem more appealing than a place where “mom and dad” sightings run rampant. However, this changes with an awesome recreation room in the basement. A finished basement with a pool table, a large television, and game systems is a great way to encourage your kids to have friends over (instead of vice versa). This ensures your teenagers stay – quite literally – right under your nose.
