Sometimes we own a home and the kitchen space we have just doesn’t seem adequate for our needs. You, in particular, might have a lot of guests over from time to time who need to have ample space to prepare food for, or you just might not have enough room to have all the appliances that you want in one area. Sometimes, kitchens are remodelled and renovated and are often built as an afterthought, with a lot of floor spaces given to living rooms and bedrooms, and even bathrooms too.
A growing trend among those that are seeking major home remodels though are people who are looking to do something a little unconventional with a space that not many people would have thought to use; The Basement. It’s hard to imagine why, since for the most part Basements are pretty gross, and don’t seem like a good place to prepare food. They can be dirty, musty, and full of dirt. It’s not like you can just shove a freezer and an oven in them and then prepare a well-made home cooked meal for a whole family. Not without a major effort to clean the basement.
But luckily, there is a way to get a beautiful, spacious second kitchen, and in the basement as well. More and more homeowners have been slowly waking up to the idea that it’s a good idea to renovate the basement of their homes and create a room that they so desperately need. For some homeowners, this is making an office or a few extra bedrooms. For some, it’s all about making an extra kitchen space to entertain and feed hungry guests.
It’s not hard to see why either. When properly renovated, Kitchen basements have the added bonus of being placed in an area of the house that tends to be well ventilated, and often designed to be one of the coolest areas of the house. Place some proper installation in the walls and ceiling, vents for air conditioning, and you have a place that can easily be used to warm the entire house. Not only that, but a vast majority of basements are often open floor planned, so you have practically all the space in the world you’d need a wide oven, a large refrigerator, and plenty of counter space as well. With the space that’s left over, you can even have a large floor space to entertain and feed people without having to bring the food back upstairs!
Plus, all of that is pretty cost effective too, ensuring that it brings up the value of any home that is renovated to have a second kitchen installed. Any basement renovations, especially kitchen based ones, practically pay for themselves over time, making them one of the most popular remodelling and renovation projects any homeowner can pick up.
