Basement Remodeling Fort CollinsBasement Remodeling Fort Collins

There’s a certain charm to the unfinished American basement. It’s uncluttered, unpressured space that saves homeowners on construction costs—and who can argue with all that storage! But leaving your basement unfinished is a tradeoff, and as long as it’s still empty frames and bare concrete you’ll be missing out on a few important things…

A Whole Extra Floor

Even if your home felt perfect when you moved in there are countless events in life that can make it start to feel a little bit cramped. Maybe you got a pet, had a baby (or a few!), got busier, or suddenly have teenagers and their friends taking up real estate. Maybe you just accumulated STUFF over time, and are running out of places to furnish with it.

Whatever the reason, your unfinished basement is the perfect available real estate and building it out can add dozens if not hundreds of useful, livable square feet to your property without the major investment of a home addition.

Purpose-Built Space

It’s not just about how much space you can add, it’s about all the possibilities that that space opens up. For instance:

  • A classy home bar
  • A professional downstairs office
  • Clutter friendly play space for the kids
  • An excise room with punching bags or a stationary bike
  • The ultimate home theater
  • Whatever you want!

Hospitality Potential

The next time family or friends come in from out of town you can offer them the best guest experience possible with a fully furnished guest room. It’s a touching gesture that can make guests feel more at home, while the finished basement proper gives them comfortable space to lounge with some privacy.

Resale Power

Whenever you work on your home, remember that you aren’t just improving your standard of living in the short term. You’re investing in your home value and resale potential far down the line.

Carpeting, drywall, and extra bedrooms or bathrooms can make your home FAR more valuable and intriguing to home buyers in the future, and leading remodeling publications have determined that homeowners can expect 70-75% of the cost of the remodeling to go straight into home value.

Take a moment and think about all of the things you have stored in your basement right now. If you actually took the time to inventory it, you would be astonished at just how many things you have managed to cram into that unassuming room downstairs. For most people, the basement is basically your home’s “catch-all” place – the space where you store things you have no idea what to do with otherwise. However, if designed appropriately, a basement can be far more than a storage space for your cast off items.

In Colorado, having a functional basement can provide a great place for recreation during the cold, winter months. Contractors that handle basement renovation in Fort Collins can help you plan, design, and implement a basement that includes space for play, as well as storage. General contractors in Loveland (such as myself) can build a basement that can serve as office space, an extra bedroom, and even a second living room. The possibilities are endless. Your basement can be quite useful, so hire a contractor, and look at it with a fresh eye.
