Basement Conversion Chelsea

Thinking about expanding your home space? The best option for you can just be a basement conversion! Basements are an ideal means of providing an existing property with additional living or sleeping space. A basement conversion is a perfect way to ensure your home grows with it, without any cost of moving or inconvenience.

How Much Does a Basement Conversion in Chelsea Cost?

Generally, a basement conversion is a large under-ground room and, as such, it is mostly used to house the heating system of the home and functions as a larger storage area. It is typically set less than half way below the road curb height and they also have an exterior window due to cellars sitting slightly higher than a cellar. Due to their size, basements are usually converted into additional living space and, when converted properly, can serve many other functions from a bedroom to a kitchen.

The cost to convert a basement can vary widely depending on what you want to achieve with your basement. You can hire loft conversion london’s basement conversion professionals to carry out the conversion process for you.

Converting your unused basement space into something more friendly and accessible could take two or three weeks to several months. The conversion of the basement will undoubtedly add property value to your home.

Why Convert Your Basement Conversion in Chelsea

Converting your basement into a usable part of your house, whether a bedroom, office space, TV room, game room, exercise space, etc. with or without a bathroom has many benefits. Some of the top benefits of basement conversions include:

  • Improved resale value. Converting an unfinished basement into a finished space is one of the best and most effective ways to increase your home's resale value.
     
  • Conversions may be cheaper. When you turn a basement into usable space, you take the existing structure  and space and turn it into something you love. A conversion is a much more cost-effective option than a home renovation add-on.
     
  • Conversions provide you with more room. You may have many reasons for converting your basement. To begin with, making your basement inhabitable gives you extra space. You may have a growing family and you may be trying to fit everyone under the same roof. A basement conversion can provide you with what you're looking for if you want a comfortable space in your home. In fact, converting a basement will add up to 1⁄3 of the size of your home to it, which means that simply investing in finishing the basement gives you more space to do what you want.

Things to consider with Basement Conversion for Chelsea Residents

Waterproofing -

If you are constructing or only converting, to avoid moisture and mould, your basement would need to be made waterproof. Via two primary methods, basement waterproofing is achieved:

  • Tanking - This includes adding the walls, floors and, in some cases, ceilings to a waterproof cement system. It is used to permanently make the walls waterproof.
  • Cavity membrane drainage - This allows water to penetrate your basement and redirects it to an allocated exit point.

Few Mistakes People Make With A Basement Conversion

  • Not doing your research
  • Not being clear on what you intend on using the basement for
  • Making too many small rooms
  • Not using the rooms above as a template
  • Not getting enough light into it
