Many homeowners decide to renovate their houses to increase their value and comfortability. While bathroom and kitchen remodeling are the most popular projects, remodeling your basement can also yield many benefits. This project won’t just increase the value of your home, but its functionality.
Today, JLR Home Renovation, a professional remodeling company, shares tips and recommendations for your basement remodel.
Add a Bathroom and Bedroom
If you’re really looking for a way to increase the value of your home, consider adding a bathroom or bedroom to your basement space. Not only is it the most affordable basement remodeling project, but it also provides the most functionality. Building an extra full or half bathroom and bedroom in your basement is especially useful when you’re entertaining guests. You should also think about adding a door or window since building codes require basement bedrooms to have direct access to the outdoors.
Turn It Into a Recreational Room
If you have kids, turning the basement into a fun rec room is a great idea. Make sure to include fixtures, such as lighting and furniture, to transform your dark basement to make it more inviting and comfortable as possible. You can also add a pool table and big flat-screen television for when you invite your friends over.
Install New Windows and Doors
A basement remodeling project is your opportunity to purchase new windows and doors. These can make a major impact on the overall appearance of your basement. When buying replacement windows and doors, be sure that they are durable and reliable.
Make Your Staircase More Appealing
When you open the basement door, the first thing you will see is your basement stairs. For this reason, it’s important that they look appealing and impressive. To guarantee that your basement staircase is aesthetically pleasing and sturdy, work with an experienced professional that has expertise in this area.
Include Built-in Storage Spaces
Many homeowners store holiday decorations, garden equipment, old clothes and toys and more in the basement. As such, you’ll want to maximize the square footage of your basement by adding built-in storage spaces. You may want to consider including built-in entertainment centers or cabinets for your storage space.
