Enhancing Your Basement Finishing Project

Kitchenettes are used to create a small cooking area in small spaces or where a full kitchen is unnecessary. Adding a kitchenette in your basement enhances the livability of the space, especially when you are also including a bedroom and bathroom or entertainment area within the space. No matter what your kitchenette visions are, our basement contractors at Bright Homes are here to assist you in designing and creating something that fits all your needs. Contact us today to get started!


Benefits Of A Basement Kitchenette

Creating a kitchenette in your unfinished basement opens many doors for how you can utilize the space. From entertaining guests to creating an entire apartment, the kitchenette will enhance the space in multiple ways. Contact our team at Bright Homes today for more information!

If you are attempting to create the ultimate area to entertain guests, a kitchenette significantly increases the functionality of the space as you can cook and clean up without disturbing the kids upstairs or sectioning yourself off from the fun.

Simply finishing the basement of your home will elevate the overall value as it increases the total finished square footage. However, creating a kitchenette to add a second cooking space in your home improves the value even more.

If you choose to create an apartment with a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette within your unfinished basement, you will be able to rent it out, and gain some additional income each month. This option allows the project to pay for itself!

The Cost of a Basement Kitchenette 

A full basement kitchenette is a bit more elaborate than a wet bar as they are normally a bit larger in size and include a fridge, microwave oven, and sink along with a counter space/bar area. Depending on the exact features of your basement kitchenette, the cost is normally estimated between $12,000 and $20,000. Contact our licensed basement contractors at Bright Homes today for a more detailed estimate on your basement kitchenette project!
