For many individuals, the basement becomes the catch-all storage solution. However, if your original plans for your basement included extra living space, there are a variety of budget-friendly ways to remodel.
First, you will need to go through your belongings. Pare down what you are storing to the bare essentials. You could even have a yard sale and use any of the proceeds to help fund your basement remodel plans. Once you have decluttered, you will need storage solutions. Determine how much of your basement you will dedicate to storage and how much will be living space. Once you know how much space you are working with, you will need to decide how you are going to use it.
