Do you feel like your family has outgrown your home? Are you running out of storage space? Do all the bathrooms seem to be occupied all the time? You don’t have to move — solve the problem with basement finishing.
Moving may seem like the easy solution, but trust us, it isn’t. Can you imagine packing up all your belongings, having them transported to a new location, then unpacking them again? It’s a huge chore and a big expense. Plus, you’ll be trading whatever problems your home has now for new problems.
It’s easier to stay put and use your living space more wisely. That doesn’t mean expanding; it means basement finishing.
A finished basement adds precious square footage to your home. What are some of the ways homeowners use their new space after they finish the basement?
Anyone with kids knows how much space toys take up. With basement finishing, the team at Utah Basement Builders can line the walls with cupboards, cabinets, and shelving to hold games, building sets, toys, and more. This is an extremely versatile and economical decision because you can repurpose your space continually, from the time the kids are babies until they finally move out.
Once you get rid of the Barbies and Legos, use your cabinets to hold hobby items such as sewing and crafting supplies, books and magazines, holiday decorations, camping or sporting equipment, or even canned goods.
Even if you don’t specifically build a basement bedroom, you can opt to furnish your space downstairs with a sleeper sofa or two to accommodate out-of-town guests, friends, or family members.
By adding another bathroom as well, you’ll have the perfect guest suite. Plus, you’ll appreciate having the extra facilities available as your family grows.
Large-screen TVs are a must-have these days, but not everyone wants towering electronics dominating the living room or the family room. There’s a solution: Your basement can be your home’s entertainment space. Send the kids downstairs to play video games, or have the guys watch the playoffs there while you enjoy peace and quiet upstairs.
What many homeowners love best about their basement space is the size. Upstairs, the space is divvied up into smaller rooms, but the basement can be one, large space. This is perfect for a pool table, pingpong table, wet bar, hot tub, or all of the above!
