Finishing a Basement Adds Value to Your Home

Finishing a Basement Adds Value to Your Home

For a homeowner, finishing the basement is one of the easiest ways to add more living space to a home. Your family will enjoy the space, and you will increase the value of your home. But finishing a basement takes time and money. It’s not really a DIY project. As one of the best builders in Maryville TN, Debuty Builders Inc. can help make your basement into valued added living space.

Finishing the Basement

There are many reasons why finishing your basement is the right choice for your family. Listed below are reasons why you might want to consider this as an option for your home:

  • Entertaining family and friends.
  • Many families love to put a mini-kitchen in their finished basement for easy access to food and drink. Additionally, a finished basement is the perfect place for pool tables and home theaters.
  • Working from home.
    Because of the COVID pandemic, many companies allow their workers to work from home. If you do not have a quiet space for your office, your basement may be the most cost-effective solution.
  • Providing a dedicated playroom.
    As your family grows and the children age, the toys increase in both size and number. Finishing your basement not only gives your children a playroom, but it allows the main house to remain clutter-free.
  • Homeschooling.
    For the past two years many homes became classrooms. A finished basement allows a quiet place for study with space for school supplies.
  • Accommodating guests.
    Whether it is a mother, guest, or kid back from college, a bedroom in the finished basement gives everyone their own private space.

Simply adding more square footage to the home also is one huge reason. With some basements going ahead and finishing it out can almost double square footage. This is optimal for both family sanity and for resale value!


As you can see, there are many ways finishing your basement adds value to your home.  If you are doing new construction or remodeling, Debuty Builders Inc. in Maryville, TN is here to help you reach your goals!

Keep Resale in Mind

When it comes to remodeling, there’s no shortage of great design advice. Kathie Maughan Francis, principal and founder of Maughan Design, Inc. in Portland, Oregon, says it’s important to design with resale in mind if you’re planning to stay in your home five years or fewer. “If you’re planning to stay more than seven years, design your room for yourself. The look will consider dated by the time you put the home on the market,” she says.

Pamper Yourself

Unless you’re a fan of luxuriating in a bath on a regular basis, skip the whirlpool tub. A vertical spa can achieve close to a full-body massage with its vertically aligned water jets along your shower wall. If you have no time for a bath, think about updating your bathroom with something you’ll use and notice every day, such as a luxury shower with dual heads. For cleanliness, convenience, and efficient water usage, choose an electronic faucet. This will make the most of its practical benefits.

Trade a Built-In Desk for Cabinetry

Often tucked into nooks in the kitchen, a planning desk functions as a message center for a busy family. It’s a handy spot for handling messages, mail, and bills. “In a kitchen, people insist on putting planning desks in. No one ever sits there and plans anything,” says Michael Cordonnier of Remodeling Designs in Dayton, Ohio. Consider whether you’d benefit more from additional cabinets or a pantry before you put in a desk.

Connect Spaces

Looking for a home renovation project with a big impact? Opening up walls and hallways is one way to get the most from your remodel and create more livable spaces. To make open floor plans work, each area of your home should carry one or more style elements over into the next room. Paint all adjoining walls and architectural details the same color so as not to disrupt the visual flow.

Don’t Share the Mudroom

Everyone wants a main-floor laundry room. For smaller homes, an organized laundry room-mudroom combo can be ideal. If it’s squeezed into a tiny area near the garage, though, homeowners often are unhappy in the long run. Bob Near of Lake Country Builders in Excelsior, Minnesota. He advises owners to create separate mudroom and laundry room areas, even if that means moving the laundry room to the basement.
