Having a basement in your home is a great benefit — a basement offers a lot of extra, unused space. By remodeling and converting that basement into something usable, you automatically increase the square footage of your home, give your family more breathing room, and will likely increase your home value, too. If you know you want to convert your basement into space that’s livable, but you’re not sure exactly what you have in mind, here are some ideas to get you started–
If you — like the millions of others around the United States — are someone who is now working from home, then having a private home office that offers you a quiet, distraction-free place to work is essential. A home office may be just the space you’re looking for. At Doppler Construction, Inc., we can handle the full conversion of your basement into a home office, including lighting, electrical work, wi-fi access, and more. Just tell us your vision and we’ll get to work.
Another great thing to have in one’s own home these days is a workout room. A workout room or home gym means that you have the ability to get a sweat in and your heart rate up even when you’re on a tight schedule. Home gyms and workout spaces are really popular right now, and the great thing about these is that if there comes a point where it’s no longer serving you, it’s easy to convert the space into something else, such as a home office or TV room.
One very practical way to use a basement is to convert it into a guest apartment or mother-in-law apartment that’s complete with its own bathroom, and perhaps even its own kitchen and entrance. Depending on your needs as a family, this could ultimately be a room that you rent out in order to bring in some extra cash.
If your family just needs a little bit more breathing room, converting your basement into a room where everyone can relax as a family or at their own leisure is a fine idea, too. Basements are popular spaces for oversized couches and large TVs, games, ping-pong and foosball tables, etc. Having a place where your family can spend some time relaxing together may be exactly what you need.
