The recession has left many families looking for ways to add a little bit of revenue to supplement their incomes, and The Seattle Times reports that one family may have found a solution by renting out their basement to contract workers and other temporary residents.

This is a relatively new development in their lives, and it took years of careful planning, as well as a few renovations.

"We're in a place in our lives where we're ready for adventure," resident Piper Lauri Salogga told the news provider. "We knew we'd do something with the basement. It took us two years of sowing our own oats in the space before we were ready."

The basement unit has a front room with a fireplace included, a living room-kitchen, a bathroom and bedroom, along with closets and other storage areas. They have completely furnished the area so that renters will feel at home and to improve the value of the space.

Those looking to convert a room in their own home into an area available for rent may choose to follow these same tactics. Window treatments are a key design element for any room, and roller shades can add a degree of privacy and color to any space.
