A basement conversion can create a huge amount of extra living space presenting a householder with an endless list of usages, purposes and activities. Popular options in recent years include media room, wine cellar, wet bar, gym, office, playroom, ‘man cave’, laundry and guest room.
A London basement conversion is a perfect solution if you want to hang on to that precious back garden space and explore the money-making opportunities a potential new living space can bring to a dwelling.
As a result the past 15 years have seen Londoners excavating underneath their properties in an effort to create and design all kinds of exciting extensions. It’s worth remembering that subterranean rooms are an excellent way of limiting the visual impact on a property, especially if they are restricted by preservation orders and planning processes.
A basic basement extension could increase the floor area of a two-storey property by over half but many Londoners are now opting to submerge multiple floors underground with average extensions now measuring up to 700sq ft.
Basement architectural design touches such as glass and light coloured walls can further open up the space, improving the traditional dingy feel of a basement conversion with a massive added advantage of a basement room being the accessibility from the ground floor.
With all basement architectural design, it is important that stabilising and strengthening of foundations and waterproofing are done properly and professionally. At Simply Basement, we take away any confusion in the process and pride ourselves on delivering one of the best all in one London basement conversion design and build packages.
Each borough in London has its own set of planning guidelines and complexities surrounding the design and construction of basement conversions. It is therefore important to appoint an architectural team, who are able to guide you through this process effectively, resulting in a design and set of plans that will pass through planning permission. Here at Simply Basement, we have a full design and build package including our own architects available to guide clients through the architectural and planning permission side, right through to actual construction of the basement.
Remember, a basement conversion can be used for anything a client desires, from extra bedrooms for family as well as playrooms, wine cellars, swimming pools and cinemas.
