We can change your basement into whatever you want.
For the latest trend in home improvement, don’t look up – look down.We can change your basement into whatever you want. Maybe it is just a minor change or perhaps some damp proofing. Or maybe you are looking at fully modifying your basement and turning it into the prize of your home.
The main reason basement conversions
The main reason basement conversions are really growing in popularity is because, unlike loft conversions, basements are normally closer to other communal areas and can be more versatile living spaces that suit modern lifestyles, not just extra bedrooms, bathrooms or studies. Builder2 provide teams of qualified tradesmen for Basement Conversions. A Basement (or cellar) conversion requires every type of skill, starting from the architect and structural engineer to the reinforcement of the structure of the property to installing the final lighting and finally doing the paint touch-ups at the end.
LET YOU IMAGINATION ROAM FREE
Perhaps the most exciting reason to 'extend' underground is that you can really enhance your family's lifestyle.
Your kids can have a giant playroom all to themselves – or the bigger kids can treat themselves to a home cinema, a recording studio, or a state-of-the-art wine cellar to really indulge their passion.If you own a commercial property it’s also worth remembering your basement could earn you thousands as extra storage, retail space, a car park or even a bar or nightclub.
Are there any financial benefits?
Apart from the extra space for you or your family, a basement conversion can earn you a packet in additional rental income. Most simply, you could rent the converted basement to a lodger, who would then share the kitchen and bathroom with the family. Or, alternatively, you could convert the basement into a self-contained studio apartment, with its own front door if so desired. If that sounds appealing, however, you should be aware that you will need planning permission if you plan to create a separate entrance to your home.
But even if you decide not to rent out your converted basement, a simple conversion can also add on thousands to the value of your property when selling it on.
Do your bit for society
It might seem far-fetched but basement conversions were championed by the Minister of State for Housing and Planning in 2005 as a way of addressing the UK’s increasing inner-city dwelling density. So you’d also be helping out the Government (if you wish)
