The process of converting a cellar tends to vary for every client as it depends on what needs to be done, and the scale of the work. Many houses will have cellars which are dark, damp and mainly used for storage or nothing at all. By carrying out a conversion, you can transform this area into a habitable room with a real purpose. The work might simply consist of redesigning the inside space, or it could involve excavating into the ground to increase the head height.
This work can also add value to your home as you’re creating another habitable space close to the existing living areas. This could be another bedroom or a cosy relaxation area; the options are endless as to what you can do.
There are many advantages to converting your basement into a more usable room. The main one being that it creates more space for things which may not fit into the rest of the house. To create an extra living area, spare guest bedroom or children’s playroom this is an ideal way to do it. Other popular designs include home offices, gym facilities, bars and entertainment rooms; it’s totally up to you how you'd like to use the area.
Different things like furniture, carpet, wallpaper and other decorative features can really transform the room into a homely space that you’ll enjoy using. You can be creative with the designs and come up with something truly unique for your home.
It is really important that if you're wanting to use a contractor to carry out this project that you do your research. We recommend you request see their previous installations and speak to their clients to see how their work went. This will ensure you that you are going to use a suitable company to complete your project. There are many cowbboy builders in the industry so you have to be careful to make sure that you do not use them and loose your money.
We’d always advise thinking about your budget before looking to start converting a cellar as the costs will vary depending on what you are trying to do. There is a number of factors which affect the prices and it’s important to consider these so that our architects can make plans which are affordable for you. Things like heating, power, lowering the floor level and providing access are all things that will have an effect on the overall costs.
Waterproofing is a necessary cost for this sort of project as the basement is underground so each wall is surrounded by soil which soaks up water easily. If this water gets inside it can cause a lot of damage to fixtures and fittings that may have been installed after the conversion. We can gladly talk you through the costs for designs and planning of this work as well as everything else involved.
