about

How do you turn your basement into the place to be? You transform it from a cramped, musty space to terrific rooms your family members will want to be in. No more dreaded trips to put in a load of laundry in a dark, dank locale or retrieve something from gloomy, cavernous storage. Instead, you'll enter a warm, welcome family room, a cozy home office, or a slick gym.

For the motivation to pull these basement renovations off, look to Basement Ideas That Work. Filled with practical and budget-friendly advice, Basement Ideas That Work not only helps you to get more enjoyment from your home, but increases its value in a single leap -- a finished basement reportedly earns an average of 90% of its remodeling cost back at resale.
