Remodeling a basement is a great way to add square footage to your home

When you think of a basement, your mind probably envisions dark, cobwebbed corners piled with boxes of holiday decorations, unused appliances and other possessions that don’t have a place upstairs in the finished parts of the home. But, if you’re looking for a way to add square footage to the inside of your house without having to build something entirely new, remodeling a basement could be a great option for you. 

There are a number of directions you can go in depending on what kind of space best suits your desire and needs. You may want to consider transforming your basement into a: 

Bar – A classic basement bar can make your home the go-to place for poker night, dinners with friends and weekend parties. There is a great deal of preparation required to implement something like this, but the finished product will likely make all the hard work and effort worthwhile. 

Guest bedroom – If you have family members or friends who visit often, you can turn your basement into a comfortable, welcoming guest room. There’s even the option of installing a bathroom for added convenience. 

Playroom – For the kids – or for adults who are well-acquainted with their inner child and like to let loose and have fun – a basement playroom is a great escape. There’s probably enough space for that pool table you’ve always wanted and a nice big entertainment center to watch the game.
