Are you looking to add space to your home to increase its value, appeal and functionality?  A basement remodel adds endless possibilities to increase living space to your home. It’s the perfect solution for homeowners who need more living space but feel a room addition is not an option for them.

From family rooms, workout centers and additional bedrooms, families are putting the basement to the test.  A once dingy and dark storage area, your basement can be designed to become the go to space for your family to have movie night, get in a quick workout, or a new play space for the kids to hang out and enjoy.  Many homeowners choose to add bars, fireplaces and saunas to increase the enjoyment of this new living space.  There are many products on the market today that make this once underutilized space a dream makeover. 

There are a few things to keep in mind when you decide to finish or remodel your basement.  First you want to make sure it is dry.  If not make sure to take necessary steps to fix cracks in the foundation or any problem areas you may have. Secondly, have in mind the kind of space you want to create and make sure it is feasible.  There may be some things you would like to add, but space may not give you the option.  It’s key to make sure the footprint of your basement can accommodate your design plans. 

Whether you are in need of more bedrooms or just some additional living space, look below to your basement and create the ultimate space of your dreams!
