Basement remodeling: Have you thought about it? If your basement is a dark and scary place your kids want nothing to do with, perhaps you should consider having it finished or remodeled. Maybe it’s something you have never given any serious thought. After all, your basement is only used to house your washer and dryer and you don’t give it much thought.
There are several benefits to having a finished basement, it is space that is being wasted at the moment. Total Care Heating & Air, your AC repair service in Riverside, offers the benefits of a finished basement.
Increased Home Value
If your basement is low on the list of rooms that need updating or renovating, you might want to give that a second thought. You might have to spend some hard-earned money to finish your basement, but it can add dollar value to your home.
A finished basement gives you more square footage of living space and whatever additions you add to the basement will increase the value of your home.
If you aren’t planning on selling your home anytime soon, the added space of a finished basement can be enjoyed by you and your family. A finished and usable basement offers a large amount of space that can be used for a family room, playroom, extra bedrooms or even a home office. Stop for a moment and think about all of the ways you could utilize the extra space in your finished basement.
No, you’re not seeing double and we are not repeating ourselves. It is just that when you finish your basement, there are so many ways you can utilize the extra space.
Ultimately, you are adding an entire floor to your house. This new space can be used for extra storage space, a place to house guests and a place with an added bathroom which creates ease and convenience in your home.
Design and Decoration
The beauty of an unfinished basement is that it is basically a blank canvas waiting for you to turn it into a masterpiece. A basement design can be quite flexible and it will be all up to you in how you want it to look. You can be as creative as you want to be.
Add a Bedroom
Your family is growing but your home isn’t, a finished basement can give you that extra bedroom you need so badly. In fact, it might give you two bedrooms, which is even better depending on the space needs you have.
Perhaps you have family who visits for long periods of time, that extra bedroom gives them a comfortable place they can stay.
Add a Bathroom
Just as a finished basement can give you an extra bedroom, it can give you an added bathroom as well. In fact, it can give you a bathroom with a jetted tub and bath towel heater. That’s right, you can have a luxury bath installed in your basement should you so desire.
Of course, even a regular bathroom will offer more convenience for the family and would probably help members get along with each other a little better.
Add an Office
It would sure be nice to have a room where you could keep your laptop, books and the desk that is currently in the living room. You could even have a built-in bookshelf.
In all likelihood, your unfinished basement isn’t properly sealed and you are losing cold air in the summer and warm air in the winter. When you have your basement finished, these issues can be addressed.
