You might have one packed full of boxes, old furniture, and similar items but the space can be far more useful than a storage area. Even a finished basement that is old, dark, and poorly designed can be an equal waste of valuable square footage. Finishing a basement can offer the best price per square foot of any remodeling project and the potential for the space is huge.
Many homeowners are using their basements to create the perfect space for entertaining with a pool table, wet bar, wine cellar and even a home theater. Maybe you need a quiet office at home or an in-law suite for an aging relative. The possibilities can go on and on. That is why careful planning is essential.
The fact that you are here indicates you have already thinking about the possibilities. Have you considered things like noise, access, lighting, and windows? These can plan an essential part in your finished basement. Do you want to keep noise out for a quiet office or keep noise in for a home theater with surround sound.
Next, start making lists and determining priorities. Deciding what you must have to make the project a success and what can be trimmed for the sake of your budget will prevent you from making a poor decision on the spur of the moment. As with most sizable remodeling projects, you should hire a remodeling contractor to design and build your space so you know everything is up to code and properly constructed. Having your priorities in order will simplify this process.
Determining a budget for your basement remodel can be tricky but there are a few obvious items that can increase the cost. Adding a bathroom or even a sink, if the room has not been plumbed for it can be challenging. Additionally, if support columns need to be moved or a new access created, these too can add to the expense.
