Finishing basements is one of the larger home projects on an owner’s list. However, a finished basement can add usable space, equity, and function. It is a job that pays off! So even when you have other projects on your DIY list, an improved basement brings your home to a new level.
The following is a list of 5 reasons to complete your basement…
Too much storage
Unfinished basements collect old things. Old possessions have a way of accumulating in an unfinished basement. Boxes of books, unused tools, out of season clothing all can pile up. Do yourself a favor and have a garage sale, or donate these items and make use of freed up space.
Basements that have not been finished oftentimes have a good amount of spiders, bugs, and possibly mice. Not only do these critters have the potential to bring about illness but no one wants to live with them! A finished basement actually deters them. Animals and insects like a dark damp environment not a place with activity.
Finishing Basements Increased Home Value
You may live in your home forever. However, situations change. You may change jobs or wish to be closer to relatives. Regardless of the reason, a home with a finished basement increases the value of your home. Your basement may provide an extra bathroom, a spare bedroom, or a place for home entertainment. Hence, it may be just what a buyer is looking for in a new home.
A Retreat or Mancave
Everybody needs time to themselves. You may need time to relax, enjoy a hobby, or watch a show. No one likes to do this in a concrete damp basement. A completed basement is enjoyed every season of the year and provides just the relaxation you seek.
Picture an amazing finished basement. This can also be the place to urge your children to invite their friends over. Furthermore, nice tv with video games and a game table allows youngsters to have their space as well. Instead of being away, your children are spending more time at home where you can supervise.
