5 Ways to Utilize Your Basement

Deciding to commit to basement finishing can be a huge investment, and Blackdog Builders understands some of the apprehension you might have about its worth. With over 25 years of experience, Blackdog can confidently say we have only seen great results from adding square footage to your home, for use and resale. Wondering how you could use your space? Here are a few of the most common.

Extra living space

Whether you use it for a game room, a media room, or just simply a secondary living room for your home, the possibilities are endless. This renovation design can give your house two relaxing spaces to unwind and enjoy.

Play area

One problem many parents find in their homes is that their children’s toys seem to overflow into all the living space upstairs! Get rid of some of this worry when guests come over by having an area dedicated to their toys and play time.

Additional bedrooms

It can be hard to live in a smaller home with a growing family. Adding bedrooms in the basement not only increases home value, but it also gives everyone their own space! Upgrading this area of your home offers square footage without any additions or having to move.

Home gym

Having the elliptical in the office might be manageable, but imagine having a space that you can work out freely without the fear of knocking over a laptop. Home gyms keep your equipment contained to one area and is a great luxury for any homebuyer.

Laundry and utilities

Sometimes, our laundry rooms are inconveniently stuffed into narrow hallways or even in our kitchens, but extending your space to the basement can get rid of this problem! Your laundry will be out of sight and out of mind when you can close the door as guests arrive.

As builders in New Hampshire, Blackdog can help you make all the best practical design choices for your home. Understanding basements limitations and their concerns are all a part of the job, and we have the knowledge, materials, and experience you need to know you made a sound investment for your future.
