The Extra Space Hiding in Your Home

Are you thinking of remodeling your home?  Would you like a larger bedroom, a fun play room, or a man cave all your own?  Or, maybe you wish you had a room to rent out?  Before building on an entirely new room, take a look in your basement.

You no longer have to use that room as a dumping ground for everything you don't want in the rest of your house.  Now, it can be a warm and inviting living space, and it doesn't have to be a cookie cut out of everyone else's design.

For example, along with a coat of paint, and a dropped ceiling, you could add a bathroom, and a home entertainment center, which would spice up any living space. Two things to remember when remodeling your Denver basement is to think about appropriate flooring, and hiding any pipes or wires that may be exposed.

Why stop at the possibility of a man cave?  Why not think of your basement as a school away from school, or a play room that will bring all the neighborhood kids over.  What better way to keep your kids close to home, than to bring in their friends with Foosball, white board or chalk board walls, rubber flooring, a water table, and circus themed lighting?  Oh, the homeschooling possibilities are endless, with a denver basement remodel.

Or, here's an idea that light sleepers will love:  Don't just build yourself an excellent master bedroom, build a bedroom oasis: an escape from the rest of the world.  Now, you can have a spacious, bright bedroom, with a walk-in closet, plush carpeted flooring, windows to bring in soft lighting.  Why not add a sound system, and soft wall colors.  With a nature sounds CD, you'll have your own hotel and spa.

My personal favorite option, for a larger basement, is the idea of building in a studio apartment.  An open floor plan will keep the space from feeling cramped and dark.  Add in a counter, small stove, refrigerator, and a sink, on top of a bathroom and closet, and you've got your self a very sweet living space.  It could be divided up into a living and dining area, as well as a bedroom.  You can take that old stair case, build in a seperate entrance, and you've got a great area you could offer to house guests, or even rent out. The options are endless when considering a home remodel, basement or otherwise, in the greater Denver area.

There you have it, four great opportunities for remodeling your house.  A man cave, for the man who loves his home theater; an exciting play room, a bedroom for the woman who has everything, and a studio apartment for your college student or a tenant.  What more could a home owner ask for?
