Improve Your Home with a Finished Basement

October 29, 2013

Imagine: adding a whole new usable floor to your house, sometimes almost doubling its total space! The possibilities are endless. But we’re not talking about a third level, and chances are you might already have this square footage just waiting to be tapped: your basement! You just haven’t been using it up to its full potential until now.

Finishing your basement is a great way to add to the overall value of your home, and is a great bonus from the perspective of homebuyers. Plus, it doesn’t always count as taxable space, depending on where you live and how you finish it, thus providing you with an asset without liability.

Besides monetary value, there is so much more value in the function of finally using your basement to its fullest. You and your family can reap the benefits of having fun in a new rec room or game room, your teenagers can slip off to their own TV room, you can invite guests over to your own bar, and you can hide away in your own man-cave, sauna, upgraded workshop, or home gym. There are so many possibilities. But tread lightly, and take your time deciding: you might end up inviting your in-laws or parents over more often than you bargained to crash in your new live-in suite! 

At Custom Deck Builders, we’re ready to serve your basement finishing needs, whether you want to do something as small as a walled in storage area and carpeting throughout the rest, or an all out fully upgraded expansion of your livable space. We’ll answer your questions about stovetops vs. ovens, powder rooms vs. bathrooms, countertops and cabinets. We have a wide assortment of layouts and product styles that can be tailored to you and your family’s needs.
