Many homes in Toronto, ON have at least a partial basement, yet most go unused for anything more than the storage of a few items that can handle the conditions there. If you have considered selling to buy a bigger home, you may be able to avoid that with basement remodeling. Taking the space you already have and making it useable can be a far better option than relocating. Consider all the ways you could use some extra living space.
- Entertainment / Hobbies: Most families find that family members have differing interests when it comes to entertainment and hobbies. Instead of fighting over the remote, which movie to watch or how a hobby has taken over the family living room, consider basement remodeling to add another location, so everyone is happy.
- Additional Income: Depending on regulations where you live, you may be able to use basement remodeling to create a separate residential unit that can earn you some rental income. Even a partial basement can make a nice apartment for this purpose. If you don’t need the income, a separate apartment can be a great way to help a family member, such as a parent or young adult attending college.
- Better Storage: Basement remodeling can also be used to make your basement an improvement over being dark and dank, thereby making it a safer location to store your belongings. By removing the danger of water damage, mold and mildew, you can get more organized and efficient.
