It’s easy to understand why the basement often becomes one of the most neglected areas of the home. It’s out of sight and out of mind. Plus, it can be challenging to see past the storage boxes, concrete floors and exposed, drywall. But when you do look past all of that, you’ll recognize that you’re ignoring an opportunity to add more usable and convenient space to your home. So before you shake your head at the idea of a basement reno, first consider a few of these compelling reasons to finally finish your basement.
Increase The Value Of Your Home
Having a finished basement can significantly increase the value of your property. Whether you decide to convert it into a separate apartment, office space, or bedroom, having that extra room when it’s time to market your home will entice more buyers and increase your selling price.
Since the basement is tucked away from the main floor, you can be flexible with the design and transform it into whatever you wish. You could convert it into a games room with a bar, an entertainment room with extra comfy seating, or a workout space – the options are really endless.
Give The Kids Some Space
Imagine being able to have space where the kids can go play or hang out with their friends without causing a ruckus on the main level. Whether you have little ones or teenagers, having that extra room can provide more elbow room while giving you some reprieve from all the noise.
Another worthy reason to finish your basement is the extra income you could be making from it. By converting the space into a separate basement apartment, you could rent it out and enjoy a relatively passive influx of extra income each month.
At Home Office
With more homeowners working from home part-time or full-time, it can be tough finding the space you need with some peace and quiet to get down to business. Your basement provides the perfect opportunity to create a home office where you can remove yourself from the commotion on the main floor.
Don’t let all of that extra potential space be used to store away old boxes and collect dust. At RenosGroup.ca, we can help create the perfect space for your needs. Contact us, or give us a call at (613)727-9427 today to learn how you can get started.
