Expanding Your Home the Easy Way

You’ve been eyeing that empty, unfinished space downstairs for months. Maybe you just had a baby, and you need the extra room. Perhaps your teenage boys need a man cave. Or maybe you just want a comfortable, quiet place to escape from the hubbub of the rest of your house. No matter the reason is; basement finishing is a great way to expand your space without breaking the bank.

Before you begin, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Check building codes – There are certain standards required for living spaces in your home, and it’s important to meet them, both for your safety and for any possible future sale of your home. Does the use you have in mind require an outside window? Do you need to install a sump pump for a basement bathroom? Be sure to check your local codes so you don’t run into troubles down the line.

  • Use your imagination – Take time to dream a little. Draw up some plans. Chat with your family. Make sure you have a good idea of what you want from your finished space so it will be an inviting and useful addition to your home.

  • Use the space wisely – If your basement is small with a lot of supporting beams, installing a ballroom is probably not in the cards. Begin with a solid idea of what the purpose for the space will be; then get creative on how to adapt the space you have to make those dreams a reality.

  • Be realistic – Once the dreaming is done, understand that a basement finishing project will take some time to complete. Plan a budget for completing the project. Do your research to understand what will be required and how long it will take. This will help your family stay patient and excited as the inevitable noise and mess of a home improvement project goes on.

Whatever your needs, and however you end up using that wonderful basement space; enjoy the outcome of your next big step in home renovation through basement refinishing.
