Basement renovations have been on the rise over the last few years in London; planning applications for basements have increased significantly both in London and the South East. With house prices progressively increasing each year, homeowners needing more space are unable to move up the property ladder, simply because the costs are too high. The perfect solution lies at your feet, or at least under them! Basement constructions and remodels are the newest remodel trend. Basements are often unused areas of wasted space, there is so much potential under your feet that you probably didn’t even realize. Basements are large areas, which means the possibilities for transformation are endless.
Go open plan
Open plan allows you to spend more time with your family. Your basement can be transformed into a huge living area, and still have space for a modern, stylish kitchen and comfortable eating area.
Create an in-law suite
You can transform your basement into a glamorous suite with a luxury bedroom, ensuite, and a spacious living area. Perfect for when your in-laws, other family members, or friends come to stay.
Make a music room.
Your daughter is having voice lessons and your son is learning to play the drums. Create a soundproof music room in your basement, where they can practise to their heart’s content.
Have a home cinema
Nothing comes close to watching films on a big screen, with surround sound. Invest in a modern projector, surround sound, and professional lighting and turn your basement into a home cinema.
Join the underground spa
Transform your basement into a home spa, or an underground swimming pool. What could be more relaxing than coming home after a day at work, or after having a workout and then enjoying the spa.
