Okay, so you have a basement… but you’re not sure what to do with the endless amount of space offered to you. Leave it be? No — too much of a waste. After all, just think about how big your basement is compared to the rest of your house. Chances are that it makes up at least 20% of it.
But here’s the thing that we like to say to our clients: A basement doesn’t have to be a basement. In other words, with a bit of planning and creativity, a basement can be anything. And yes — that includes yours as well!
So to go back to the original question… what should you do with your basement space? Well unfortunately, there is no “one-size-fits-all” to this question because the answer depends on many, many factors. The first one is your budget. Fortunately, many Calgary basement development companies such as PLANit Builders offer financing options to their clients, so if budget is an issue for you you might want to take a look into that.
The second factor is your personal needs. Keep in mind, however, that some people like to discard their needs and focus on their preferences. Those people usually end up with in-home gyms and entertainment rooms instead of… let’s say… spare bedrooms and in-home offices. Now there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. In-home gyms are as awesome as spare bedrooms. It just depends on what you want in the long run.
Lastly, the last factor that should be considered is how much space is actually available to be used. If you want to build a spare bedroom in a space that could fit two in-home gyms, then you might want to reconsider your options before making a decision. Also remember that some companies in Calgary offer financing options to their clients, so if you think that you can’t afford that in-home gym please think again!
