Basement conversions are an alternative to loft conversions and extensions that are becoming increasingly popular in urban areas where space is in short supply. Thanks to improvements in waterproofing methods, transforming your existing cellar space into a comfortable new living area is an economically viable option to increase the size of your home and the value of your property.
Why get a basement conversion?
The obvious answer is the need for more space. Families grow, needs change, and suddenly a utility room, a new bedroom or extra living space becomes a necessity. Unlike loft conversions and extensions you are less likely to need planning permission and you don’t lose external space – converting your basement uses space already there without eating into your garden like an extension or conservatory would.
