As we settle into fall and a new school year, it is inevitable that we’ll all start spending more time indoors. If your family is feeling a bit cramped, it might be time to think about basement finishing in order to add more usable square footage to your Indianapolis home while increasing its property value.
Step 1: Decide if you will be finishing the whole basement or just a section. If you think that you will eventually want to have the entire basement as usable space, consider doing it all at once. Finishing a basement room by room can actually be more expensive in the long run. Not to mention, you have to live through the process multiple times if you break it down into one room at a time.
Step 2: Decide what the space will be used for.
- Family room
- Games room
- Play room
- Home theatre
- Study space
- Extra bedrooms (your local building code will dictate a minimum window size for egress in bedrooms, so you may need window replacement if your current windows are too small.)
Step 3: Contact local, reputable general contractors who provide an estimate and who share in your vision of the process. Our recent blog “5 Tips For Hiring A General Contractor” might be a helpful read to get you through this step.
Step 4: Enjoy your exquisitely finished basement!
