Remodeling Your Basement to Include a Guest Suite

Transform your dark and damp basement into a beautifully finished extension of your home by adding a gorgeous new guest suite. Adding a basement guest suite to your home adds a personal space for you, adult children, parents, or long-term guests. It will also boost your property value and can be offered as revenue-generating rental unit.


Creating The Perfect Basement Guest Suite

To create a comfortable and welcoming guest suite in your basement focus on adding functional and aesthetically appealing design elements.

  • Lighting: The lack of natural light often leads basements to feel cavelike. Add a variety of lighting fixtures and focus on warm lighting tones to brighten the space.
  • Flooring: Laminate flooring or tile is usually the best choice for a basement space rather than wood due to flooding risks. Layer area rugs or install radiant floor heating to combat cold feet.
  • Bathroom: The perfect basement guest suite should feel like a private residence, which means it should include a full bathroom so guests do not need to go upstairs to shower or use the restroom.
  • Kitchenette: A kitchenette will make guests feel at ease and offer a private space where they can fix a snack or drink, rather than feeling awkward in the main kitchen.
  • Finishes: Focus on finishes that add elegant touches to the space so your guest will feel special when staying with you.
