When you are looking to gain more usable space in your home without adding an addition, a basement remodel can be the perfect solution. Basements provide a blank canvas from which to design the exact areas that your family needs to support your lifestyle. You can create family rooms, kitchens, bar areas, bedrooms, theaters, music studios, or whatever you like really. But, unlike renovations to the upper levels of your home, a basement remodel presents unique challenges that must be addressed in order to ensure a safe and dry space that you and your family can enjoy for years.
Basements used to be dark, dreary spaces reserved for storing holiday decor, your out-of-season wardrobe, and all sorts of other “stuff” you want to keep but need out of the way. Today, for many homeowners, it has become a place to entertain and hang out with the family, with beautiful finishes and spaces that feel like a natural extension of the rest of the home. If you are looking to create more usable space in your home, consider the generous square footage available in your basement and how you could customize it to suit your family’s needs.
Did you know that egress windows are required in finished basements by Michigan residential code? The code states that an egress window is required in any habitable space or sleeping area in a basement or lower level that is below the fourth floor for both new and existing construction.
Trends are changing, basements are now an extension of a home's look and style. A basement remodel has the potential to add function to your home. Since we are spending so much time indoors during the winter months, remodeling your basement may become a necessity.
