Why You Should Put a Guest Bedroom in Your Basement
Have you ever wondered what to do with your basement? How about adding a guest bedroom? There are several advantages to having a guest bedroom in the basement.
First of all, if your basement is unfinished, you have a large untapped space that is only limited by your imagination. A finished basement is much more attractive to potential buyers. If you think you'll be selling your house at some point, it's in your best interest to finish out your basement.
According to Remodeling magazine, the average homeowner can expect to recoup 70 percent of the cost of remodeling their basement when they sell it. This is a larger percentage than many other improvements you may choose to make.
Secondly, adding a guest bedroom ensures that out-of-town friends and relatives can have the convenience of staying with you but still maintain their own privacy. If you have frequent overnight visitors, you probably already know how nice it would be for them to have their own space. It will make your guests feel better too, as they will not feel they are intruding on you.
You may not have considered finishing out your basement if your house has sufficient space for your family. However, adding a guest bedroom is a practical solution to ensure that no space is wasted. The great thing about any basement remodel is that it doesn't have to be permanent. At some point, you may decide you don't really need a guest bedroom, and you can convert it into an office, den or play area.
Another thing to consider when adding a guest bedroom is to also add an extra bathroom. Your guests will love having their own bathroom close to their bedroom, and you won't have to worry about sharing yours.
