Successful Basement Remodeling on a Budget

Remodeling a basement is one of the most efficient ways that a homeowner can not only improve the value of their home, but create almost double the amount of usable space. Remodeling can be expensive, but with the right budget and outlined goals, achieving this task with a minimal amount of investment should be achievable.

Develop a Reasonable Outline

An outline is essential because it allows you to accomplish what you desire in a basement remodeling project without going over budget. Focus on cheap but essential tasks first. These include installing drywall and carpeting, painting, or improving lighting. Those wishing to only renovate only part of the basement will often install paneling to segregate the furnace or laundry area. From the basics you can often expand to more expensive and complicated upgrades. These might include bathrooms, bedrooms and electrical wiring.

Cost Compare Contractors Wherever Possible

Choose a contractor which offers services at a reasonable price According to HGTV, “The addition of bedrooms, bathrooms, exterior insulation, electrical wiring, plumbing, flooring, furniture, light fixtures and the help of a contractor will all cause an increase in the price. Of course, the cost to remodel a basement will also depend on the square footage of the space.” Cut out the total space that is renovated in order to decrease square footage.
