Basement Remodeling Ideas
Do you have a basement that is sitting neglected, just storing clutter? Well, it’s time to put that idle space to a good purpose. Here are just a few of the exciting ways you can transform your basement into valuable living space.
- The ultimate master retreat. You have a large, open space that is just pleading for someone to design something spectacular within its confines. Why not create the ultimate master suite? Not only is it a private and quite location, but it is large enough to facilitate all of the luxuries you can imagine. Make it complete with a Jacuzzi tub and steam shower. Even include a gas-insert to fully set the romantic mood.
- The entertainment universe. Establish an area to send the kids and their friends; or simply create an environment more conducive to hours of quality, family fun. Keep an open room that can hold a pool table, wet bar, and home entertainment center, or section off a portion for a complete home theater experience. Work with the whole family to design a room that everyone can love and gleam countless hours of enjoyment from.
- A mother-in-law’s quarters. Convert a basement into a completely independent living area; you can even work-in an outside entrance. This makes a great guest quarters, a mother-in-law unit, or a place you can rent and possible bring a little income.
A properly designed and contained basement can add square footage and value to a home. It is important the contractor performing the work is experienced in basement renovations to ensure they use the right materials and methods. Anyone can make it appear nice, but you want quality work that is not going to develop moisture problems, or structural difficulties a year after the renovation is complete. Request free estimates from prescreened contractors in your area to ensure a quality and professional result.
