5 Basement Remodeling Ideas That Add Value To Your Home

5 basement remodeling ideas add value

Many homeowners find the prospect of a basement remodeling project to be intimidating. The wide-open space and endless possibilities can leave many homeowners with such a wide-array of remodeling options that deciding on the right one becomes next to impossible. Your basement can be one of the most valuable spaces in your home when it comes to sheer versatility. It can be re-purposed to fit almost any need you have for your home, and you don’t even have to give up your storage area.

Many homeowners fall into the trap of thinking of their basement as one room, but by adding walls and created small rooms, you can really unlock the hidden potential your basement holds. If you are having trouble coming up with ideas for your Shawnee basement remodel, here is a short list of 5 choices that can help you transform your basement in the space you’ve always wanted it to be and increase the value of your home at the same time.

Create Divisions In Open Spaces

Many basements serve a variety of purposes for homeowners, whether they are using it for a workout room, a play area, or even just a social hangout area. Adding walls to section off these spaces can give you the extra rooms you’ve always wanted for your home without having to actually add an addition to your house. If you are worried that adding walls will cut off these rooms from the little natural light available in your basement, consider adding half walls. These will still effectively partition off your spaces, but still allow them to benefit from the natural light that makes its way into your basement.

Adding A Bathroom

If you are considering using some of your basement space as an area to entertain guests or as a play area, adding a bathroom could be a very smart remodeling idea. By adding a bathroom, you will be making it more convenient for yourself and your guests as they will no longer have to run up and down the stairs to go to the bathroom.

Close Off Your Storage Spaces

Remodeling your basement doesn’t mean you have to give up your storage space, but it does give you the opportunity to keep any clutter out of sight. By adding walls and storage shelves, you can actually increase the effectiveness of your storage space while keeping it out of sight.

Add Some Extra Light

Natural light can be hard to come by in a basement, which makes it that much more important to have your artificial lighting set up efficiently. The right type of lighting not only helps to brighten up your space, but it can also help make your space feel bigger and more open if done correctly.

Open Up Your Staircase

If your basement space has a door at the top of the stairs, you could consider removing this to let more natural light into the room and to make it feel more like a part of the house as opposed to its own sequestered space.
