One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to optimize a home’s “footprint” is to expand its living space to the lower level. Of course, finished basements are nothing new. Most of us remember the “finished” basements of our youth – wood (or fake wood) paneled walls, low ceilings, not-so-great lighting, etc, etc. They may have served their purpose for our pool tables or messy teenage bedrooms, but we never forgot that we were in the basement.
Today’s finished lower levels, for the most part, don’t feel like “basements” at all. They’re simply extensions of the main living areas above, with higher ceilings, plenty of natural light and the same level of “finish” to the walls and floors. This collection of homes with finished basements provides some great design options that will significantly expand your new home’s living space without enlarging its dimensions.
