The Benefits of a Finished Basement in Your Home

A finished basement provides many benefits for you and your home. Are you wanting more entertainment space in your property? Do you want to increase your home’s property value before selling? Do you need an extra guest bedroom but don’t have the space for it? A finished basement adds usable square footage to your home and provides you with luxury living space for you and your family.

Here is a list of benefits that a custom basement finish can provide for you:

Adds Usable Square Footage

When a basement is unfinished, it is typically used for storage or laundry. An unfinished basement does not provide you with comfortable living space in your home. Investing in a basement finish will allow you to add usable square footage, bedrooms, or an entertainment space to your property. With custom finishes, you have the freedom to create any type of space you desire and increase the overall attraction of your home.

Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

A finished basement is one of the best ways to increase the overall value of your property. You are converting unusable space into a living space for families. A finished basement is attractive to homebuyers who entertain frequently or have large families with children. If you are selling your home, a basement finish is a great investment that will pay off. When you have unfinished space in your home, it can’t be counted towards the overall square footage of your property. If you have a large unfinished basement, this is wasted square footage if it isn’t converted into usable living space.

Appeal To A Wide Range of Buyers

If you having a hard time selling your home, you should invest in a basement finish to appeal to a wider range of home buyers on the market. Home buyers like finished basements. Many buyers are attracted to the possibility of extra added space for entertainment, family rooms, a workout space, home office, and guest bedrooms. A basement finish will increase the overall attraction and luxury of your home.

Eliminate Common Household Problems

Unfinished basements are known for being cold, damp and sometimes moldy. Water problems in your basement can cause a lot of damage to the floors, walls, and your belongings in storage. Properly finished basements will eliminate moisture buildup and prevent mold from growing.

Provides Added Comfort

During a hot Iowa summer, you can escape to the comfort of your finished basement to cool off. Properly insulated basements provide your home with a cool and comfortable environment without having to run your air conditioner.

Energy Efficient

Finishing your home’s basement with proper insulation can provide your home with energy efficient savings. Sealing up your basement properly and adding insulation during a basement finish will help to control cold drafty air throughout the rest of your home.

Keep Your Home Updated

A basement finish can help to modernize an outdated home. A custom basement will keep your home up to date with the newest home design trends.
