Likely the most common use of a basement bedroom is as a guest bedroom. This allows you to continue using the rest of your home per usual, while providing your guests with their own space and privacy, especially if there is a bathroom in the basement too.
The cost of including a bedroom in your basement finishing project is largely dependent on the size of the space. Estimated at $80 to $200 per square foot, you can calculate the rough total of the project.
