13 Sep Amazing Basement Inspiration
Our friends at PrimeLocation produced an article about some of the most impressive basements around – so we thought we’d share them with our readership as well. As the leading basement design specialists we work on many projects similar to the ones featured in the article, so it’s not surprise to us what can be achieved.
Basement conversions continue to be hugely popular across the country but with a high concentration in London and secondary cities where space is a premium. Houses are tightly packed in the streets of the capital; limited space surrounding city dwellings means expanding the footprint of a house is often impossible. Many houses already have loft conversions or no potential to build ‘upwards’ and so the natural solution is to go underground.
It’s not a new thing! Basements have been integral to houses throughout history, often housing the kitchen or staff quarters (according to Melanie Back-Hansen via PrimeLocation) and these spaces in older houses can now be converted into family living areas.
If you are looking for more space but don’t want to move from your current home why not take a look at the PrimeLocation article and see what kind of things can be achieved. The article gives you a peak into large, multimillion pound properties but of course this isn’t always the case. Houses of all shapes and sizes can have basement conversions installed – take a look at the variety in our gallery!
