Are you trying to find ways to create more square footage in your home to avoid the hassle of moving? If you have an unfinished basement in your home, that plan is not far from turning into a reality. There are many good reasons to finish your basement and doing so could be the perfect solution to your lack of livable space.
At Ascension General Contractors, we are here to help you find out whether this remodeling project is the right one for you. Here are some reasons why we think it’s a good time to tackle finishing your basement.
How to Tell If It Is Time to Finish Your Basement
You Need A Private Place to Work
More and more people are working from home. If you are one of them, you might find yourself struggling with all of the distractions being at home can cause throughout the day. From other people in the home to chores that need to be done around the house, finding a quiet place to escape and focus on a project or a virtual meeting can be challenging. Adding a home office in your basement can be a much easier solution than many other ways of creating a workspace. And this space can easily be transformed if you find yourself no longer needing a home office.
You Want A Home Improvement with Good ROI
Maybe you are looking at potentially moving in the not-to-distant future. A great return on investment is one of the top reasons to finish your basement. By increasing the liveable square footage in your home, you also increase the market value of your home and it can be a great selling point when approaching potential buyers. Although it is a big investment upfront, you can make a lot of that money back when you sell.
You Want a Place to Entertain
Are you someone who loves to entertain? If you are, it can definitely be frustrating when you find your current space is not ideal or big enough for entertaining your friends and family. Finishing your basement can give you a versatile room for any occasion. Whether it be a play area, an in-home theatre, a game area, or a second living room with a bar or kitchen- a finished basement is a great place to create an entertaining space customized for you to enjoy. And there are plenty of great design ideas for this out there as well!
