Tip 6: Add Storage To Your Basement

When people finish a basement, they often forget to create space for all of the items they stored there previously.

"Be sure and incorporate closets and built-in shelves to your basement design," says Ty Pennington, host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition". "Then, focus on lighting and the walls—covering cinderblock is not always easy and you want to make sure you consider moisture barriers and use the correct primer and paint."
