Lower Level Living Styles & Costs

Mar 29, 2021

Finishing a basement is the savvy homeowner’s way to add premium living space to an area of the home that was once just used for laundry and overflow storage.

Once damp, dark and cavernous, lower living areas are now transformed into bright and airy extensions of main-level living with endless lifestyle options that can include:

  • Movie Theaters
  • Themed bars & pubs
  • Family rooms
  • Workout facilities
  • Wine tasting & display areas
  • Game rooms
  • Libraries
  • Audiophile listening rooms
  • Offices
  • Spas & Massage areas
  • Media Centers
