What To Do With the Extra Room In Your House

Everyone likes to have a little bit of extra space. Even when you don’t have an idea for it right away, it can be a boon to find a home that has all the space you need within your budget — plus a little extra. Sometimes that extra space comes in the form of a basement. Eventually, however, you want to figure out a plan for that space so that it doesn’t simply sit there collecting dust. Sure it could be used for storage, but that can be a little unimaginative — as well as difficult to clean in the long run. If you’re in need of basement renovations, but unsure what kind, here are a few ideas.

Entertainment Space

One of the most popular ideas for basement renovations is an entertainment space. You can set up a big screen TV and some comfortable seating in the basement, or turn it into a game room with a pool table or a space for your weekly game night. With the right insulation, you can also set up the basement as a place to play your favorite music or even host band practice or jam sessions. Not every renovation has to be for the sake of absolute necessity. Maybe your basement renovation can give you the room to do the things you enjoy in your own home.

Guest Bedroom

You can always use another bedroom. Even if you have enough bedrooms for the family and one extra upstairs, turning the basement into a guest bedroom can be a great investment. A friend in need of a place to stay suddenly? Good thing you already have a room prepared. Kids want to have a sleepover? The basement could be the place to do it. You never know when your family or your social group might expand, so it’s best to have a home that’s ready for anything.

Rental Property

Or maybe you could turn that extra space in the basement into an investment. Create a bedroom or en suite and start renting it out through AirBnB or VRBO. You can even turn it into a more permanent rental apartment. This is a great way to pay off the cost of your basement renovations and then some. It can even be an opportunity to meet new people and expand your social horizons.Have an idea for the extra room in your home? Contact MBC Remodeling today for more information or a free quote.
