This time of year, most people are starting to look toward the start of the new year. And with the new year comes new basement remodeling trends. Many Burnsville homeowners are already looking into remodeling their basements. Here are a few 2015 basement remodeling trends we’re seeing.
More Living Space
If you think about it, basements are some of the most under-used space in your home, but they are one of the easiest parts of your home to remodel. There is already a foundation, a ceiling and walls, so you don’t have to worry about having any of that added. Adding an extra bedroom or in-law suite is easy, especially as many Baby Boomers are coming into their golden years. It’s nice to have a place for Mom and Dad to stay when they come to visit you and the grandkids!
Having a spot to entertain in is pretty important for most families. That’s why basement remodeling is such a great idea. You can have a basement bar, home theater or play room added. You can have guests over as often as you want, or you can just kick back with your family and spend some quality time together. You won’t have to worry about driving, parking or spending money if you have a nice area like this in your home.
You can have bookshelves or cabinets built into the walls during the basement remodeling process. That way, you don’t have to waste space having ones that are separate from the walls. They can be flush with the walls and you get all of the perks of having the extra storage space as well as the extra floor space.
If you want your new basement to have more than one function, that’s a basement remodeling trend for next year also. You could have a bar area and wine cellar for the adults, a play room for the kids down in your basement and a home theater for everyone to enjoy. That way, you get the best of all worlds! (And if you are a movie buff, having a home theater room is a huge perk.)
