In most houses, a basement is a place where people seldom go. It is usually left unattended for months together. For many of us, our basement is the space where we store all our unimportant belongings such as Christmas decorations, kid’s toys, old clothes, paints, plumbing tools etc.
No wonder most horror movies show basements as a spooky place. Due to these very reasons you rarely end up going to the basement. And hence, there is no way that you are going to maintain it. The result of this neglect is a cluttered and dusty space. But you can change this. With the help of Edmonton home renovators like Davery Homes, you can give your basement a complete makeover.
Here’s a closer look at the reasons you should consider remodeling the basement :
Your unorganized, messy basement can be a great extension to your living space. You can turn it into a home theatre, a guest room, a home office or just an additional bedroom. Considering the skyrocketing prices of real estate, it would be really smart to work with the existing space in your home.
A nicely done basement is an asset to your home. It can increase the overall value of your property. This is because a new buyer would prefer a house with a finished basement as opposed to a house where the basement needs to be renovated. So by remodeling the basement, you get to increase both the aesthetic and economic value of your home.
As mentioned previously, a lot of homeowners use their basements as a storeroom. Remodeling your basement can help you with added storage space. Remodeling can be a good way to declutter your basement and get things organized. You can also ask your renovator to come up with smart storage ideas for space.
Another reason to consider remodeling the basement is to make it energy efficient. Basements are usually cooler as they are not exposed to sun rays. This can make your basement a less desirable place to spend time in. With proper remodeling, you can get your basement insulated by using energy efficient materials.
An unattended basement can attract the growth of mold and all kinds of harmful bacteria. But, a finished basement eliminates all the moisture and prevents the growth of these organisms. A damp basement can also lead to the emergence of foul odors and cause illnesses. This in itself is a good enough reason to consider remodeling your basement, after all, you don’t want to risk your family’s health and safety.
