What is a Basement Conversion?
Several houses have cellars that are usually overlooked. It is always that dark, wet and dank spaces that are hardly suitable for storage. Basement conversions is the process of converting the dark, wet and dank space into an inhabitable room. Indeed, a perfect way to have an extra space in your home without losing your garden or with an inconvenience of moving. From a basic conversion to one that requires excavation and expansion, there are varying degrees of basement conversion to build sufficient height to be habitable.
Depending on the footprint of your house, your basement may provide one wide functional space, a home office, a fully separate living suite, or even a storage facility if you do have ample of space in your house. Basement conversion will not only give you an extra room, but will also increase the value of the property.
Basement Conversion can be a cost-effective way to add space to your home to turn an existing cellar into a living area, particularly if you are unable to expand into the loft or construct an extension. It can be a costly and disruptive endeavour to build a whole new basement and you would be expected to get planning approval.
Converting your basement increases the value without the need to move and also increases the usable space within your property. Another major reason for basement conversion is adding additional space for storage, living, or even a home office. At the same time, it will provide an atmosphere which is less cluttered and can be used to convert as one of the rooms -

You do not need a planning permission if you're just turning your cellar into a living room. You will need planning permission if you need to excavate the floor in order to have more headroom. You would need approval if your house is in a protected area. You will also need to comply with building regulations in case of creating an emergency escape route or achieving sufficient levels of insulation.
If you are unsure, seek advice from loft conversion specialists.
Moving out depends on the amount of work to be done. In case you don’t have any basement or you have solid floors, the work will be extensive.
If there is no excavation needed to create the underground space from scratch or increase the headroom in an existing basement, a basement conversion will always work out cheaper. Major difficulties with excavation can include -
• Architectural Drawings
• Planning applications
• Building Control
• Project cost estimation
• Detailed architectural CAD / 3D designs
