Basements are an often overlooked source of coziness and comfort. You may have an unfinished basement full of things you no longer need or rarely access, or maybe you may have a finished basement showing signs of age. Unfortunately, basements tend to become neglected, as homeowners do not often define them as primary spaces. Thankfully, basement renovations can make your underused space look as fabulous as the rest of your home – and even create a winter retreat for you and your guests.
A Great Entertaining Area
Basements, even those containing utility areas like laundry rooms, are usually wide open spaces full of potential. With proper design choices made alongside an expert, basement renovations can combine an entertaining area and bathroom and even have a room pull double-duty by creating a private retreat for overnight guests.
The key to a great basement renovation is choosing the right designer. A thorough investigation of structural elements means a lasting renovation. Proper placement of permanent elements, like plumbing and wiring, means you will be able to update your décor with ease.
A large part of the coziness factor is choosing the right insulation, something homeowners often overlook. Proper high-quality insulation keeps the basement’s climate consistent, preventing any issues with damp or musty smells. To further the retreat feeling, a fireplace that fits the style of your home and your own aesthetic can help you and your guests forget all about the outside temperatures.
Basement Renovations Increase Your Home’s Value
In areas with climates that drop below freezing, a bright and modern but comfortable and laid-back basement appeals to a wide variety of guests and buyers. It transforms the space from the “basement” to a fully functional surrounding space and a part of the home worthy of showing off!
