If you’re thinking about lower level remodeling in St Paul, you might be contemplating if it’s the right time for you to look into these types of home renovations. As the design manager for Titus Contracting, I have a few suggestions for you on what you should consider before you begin a lower level remodeling project.
How big is your home?
Is your family growing? Or maybe you entertain out-of-town guests frequently and would like to have a guest room for them? Either way, take a look at your home as it is now. If it’s starting to feel a bit smaller than it used to, then lower level remodeling might be the perfect solution. You can add a family room, a guest room, a home office, a home gym. Really, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can add to your home when you have your basement renovated.
What is your budget?
Take a look at your finances too. What can you afford and what do you want done to your basement? The cost of lower level remodeling can vary greatly, depending on what you get done to that space. So be sure the renovations will jive with your financial situation before you make any major decisions on lower level remodeling.
Do you want to move to a new home?
Sure, you can always find a home that is bigger and has more space for you and your family. But moving is a hassle physically, mentally and financially. You need to sell your home, buy a new one, pack, move, unpack, learn your way around a new area and the list just goes on and on. If you look into lower level remodeling, you can save yourself the stress of moving but still get more living space for you and your family.
Are you and your family ready for a change?
When you get your lower level remodeled, it’ll be a big change for your home and your family. You will all have more space to interact in. For example, if you turn your lower level into a theater room, there will be more opportunities for everyone to spend time together, watching movies and eating popcorn. A lower level remodeling project is worth it just for the extra family time you’ll get in with everyone!
