If your family is feeling squeezed for space, finishing the basement is a way to get the extra living space in a cost-effective manner. This is particularly true in the Metrowest area, where many building lots are too small to allow for first story additions. Here are three reasons finishing the basement makes sense:
1. You already have the basement.
Finishing the basement is making better use of space you already have. Consider how you’re currently using your basement. For many families, an unfinished basement serves primarily as an area for the home heating system, plumbing pipes, and the like. Additionally, an unfinished basement can serve as a storage area – it’s where lots of people put things & forget about them. Repurposing your basement into living space means you don’t have to pay for any new construction – just the interior finishing work.
2. Basements have infinite potential.
If you’re thinking about refinishing the basement in your North Shore home, it’s good to know you have many options. Working with a skilled design build contractor, you can turn your basement into anything you’d like it to be. Need space for your adult children to call home? A finished basement can be the answer you’re looking for. We’ve transformed basements into home offices, art studios, work out spaces, home theaters and more. The only limit is your imagination.
3. Finishing the basement is a fast fix to cramped quarters.
When you’re working with an experienced design build contractor who specializes in basement renovations, you can have your new living space faster than you’d ever imagined possible. Building an addition, on the other hand, is a long involved project – and winter weather in the North Shore can really slow things down.
