In our last blog, we talked about adding on to your home and why it’s important to have new plumbing installed in the proper places. However, you may not be building on to the house, but focusing on finishing the basement instead and making it a beautiful living and/or entertainment space. At Gladiator Repipe in San Jose, we can provide copper repiping for your basement remodel, giving you the plumbing you need to turn the lowest level of your home into a fantastic space.
Man Cave/Home Theater
Basements are often relegated as storage spaces — those areas where you stick things that you want to keep, but that you don’t want on the upper levels of the house. There are homeowners, though, that see the potential a basement can have as a man cave or a home theater. With new floors, new paint, and new furniture, you can transform that dark, stuffy basement into a comfortable living and entertaining area.
If you have plans to build a man cave or home theater, then a wet bar might be high on your priority list, and no wet bar is complete without a sink. With new copper plumbing, you can add your sink into the wet bar and have the perfect area for serving drinks when friends and family come to visit.
Guest Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Basements also offer the potential for new guest bedrooms and bathrooms. If you don’t have a suitable place for people to stay when they come to visit, then turning that old storage space into a bedroom can make the most sense. With new bedrooms, it’s important to have at least one new bathroom, which means new plumbing will be needed. That way, your guests won’t have to come upstairs to shower or to use the toilet, making their stay much more comfortable.
Your family may also be growing and you might need the extra space. Your teenage son or daughter may want to move into the basement, and as you’re building a new bedroom, keep in mind how you can incorporate a new bathroom. An additional shower and toilet can make life much easier for everyone in the house, since three or four people won’t be waiting for the bathroom on the main floor.
Finishing your basement can be quite the undertaking, but when it’s finished, you’ll have more square footage for living, entertaining, and hosting. It can be a great option for relatives who come to live with you for an extended period of time, and they’ll feel like they have their own space with the privacy they need.
