3 Reasons to Clear Out Your Basement, Lake Katrine, New York

Is your basement full of so much stuff you have to navigate around boxes every time you go down there? If so, you should consider a basement cleanout. If you clear out or move items, you can create tons of extra square footage for your house to use for anything you please.

3 Things You Can Use the Extra Space for After Your Basement Cleanout

1. Create a Home Gym

It’s difficult to find the motivation to get to the gym. You have to get in your car and drive there, sometimes going out in the rain or snow, which can keep you from getting regular exercise. You could create a home gym in your newly cleaned out basement. This doesn’t require a huge amount of remodeling, and you don’t have to buy a bunch of workout machines. A treadmill and some weights are more than enough to jumpstart your fitness without leaving your home.

2. Earn Extra Income

You could choose either a long-term tenant or open up your home to travelers. This money can be substantial and requires very little upkeep.

3. Make Room for a Loved One

If you have a friend or family member who needs a place to stay, a basement cleanout could create room for them. Some renovations might be required, but it will add extra value to your house. If you have an aging parent, creating an “in-law suite” is an excellent use of your space since it will let both you and your relative have some privacy.
