Have you been debating whether to finish your basement? Are you wondering whether the cost is really worth it? We at Booher Remodeling Company want to give you a few reasons why basement remodeling is a home improvement you should consider. basement

1. Create livable space.

If you have an unfinished basement, chances are you spend very little time down there. Maybe you do a load of laundry or pull something out of a storage box, but the fact of the matter is that it’s not space you live in. Not true of a finished basement!

2. Expand your square footage.

Do you need more space? Finishing your basement is a great way to add square footage without having to do a room addition. You just work with the space you have.

3. Increase your home’s value.

According to Remodeling, the average cost of a basement remodel in 2015 is around $65,000. However, they go on to estimate that this home improvement increased the home’s value by about $47,000—meaning that homeowners could see about a 72% return on investment.

4. Have a space to entertain.

Is your family room or bonus room just not quite big enough when you’re entertaining friends and family? The basement is a great place to create a play area, in-home theatre, or game area.

If you need more space but like your neighborhood, avoid moving by finishing your basement. Perhaps adding another bedroom or a bathroom will be the right home improvements to make you stay.
