Basements are great spaces that can be used for a whole variety of things. A big trend with basements is building a second kitchen in them. A small kitchenette can have big benefits. Read on to learn what some of those benefits are.
- Multiple Uses
A kitchen can be used for entertaining or everyday living. Making food while watching the game on the big screen is even easier with a kitchen in the basement. Or, someone living in the basement, such as a roommate, teenager or elderly parent, can have their own space to cook and keep food.
- Utilizing Extra Space
Not everyone completely utilizes their basement, leaving the space empty. Instead of using it to store junk or exercise equipment, convert it into the perfect entertaining space with a kitchen, bathroom, and sitting area.
Having a fully functional, well-designed basement will be a better selling point than an empty room with nothing in it when it comes time to sell. It also gives potential buyers ideas of what they can do with the space later.
- Increased Resale value
While kitchen renovations are listed as the most valuable selling points by real estate agents, a second kitchen can also be a huge selling point. It will help increase the resale value of the home. It can produce a significant return on investment.
When it comes to building a kitchen in the basement, water and gas lines will need to be accessed and extended to reach it. Adding sinks, dishwashers, and gas stoves will require the help of a skilled plumber, like those at All Star Plumbing and Restoration.
