Basement Apartments from HGTV's Income Property

Living Below Ground Doesn't Have to be Dark and Dreary

By

At some point in many of our lives we'll live in a basement apartment. For some of us it's our first apartment, while for others among us it's where we raise our families. As they're usually cheaper than upper floor apartments, they can be a great economical choice.

Basement apartments have always had a bit of a stigma attached to them. For the most part people tend to assume they're dark, damp and dreary. But as these examples from HGTV's hit show Income Property demonstrate, basement apartments can be fresh, colorful, spacious and bright.
