How much does finishing a basement cost?

Thumbtack Editors

The average cost to finish a basement is $8,448. Factors that affect this cost include whether you need to install a bathroom (and hence plumbing), as well as how much electrical work needs to be done. The square footage of the basement also correlates with price, with more expensive flooring like hardwood or tile costing more. The same goes for all materials.
