When COVID first hit, we were on the edge of summer. Those of us who were lucky to have outdoor space could make the most of it. This allowed us to hang out with our family and or a few friends in a socially distanced way.
Now winter is coming. We're moving inside again, and for many of us, our homes have become where we live, work, and go to school. For some of us, our homes have become multigenerational abodes, including parents or others to increase housing budgets and allow for easier coordination of quarantining and family bubbles.
With space at such a premium, we need to make the most of every square foot. Here are 31 professional tips for how to convert a basement into more living space.
The bottom line is that there has been no better time to consider how you're making the best use of the space you already have. In most homes, basements can add between 400-1000 square feet of living space. Making the most of that space will be an investment in your home, and expand your comfort not only during this challenging time but for many years to come.
