Although the most obvious reason is to create more space, there are many reasons to convert your London cellar.
As one of the highest-rated cellar conversion specialists in the UK, Refresh PSC have over 25 years of experience transforming cellars into valuable, new and warm living spaces for our London clients.
If you’re a London homeowner considering a basement or cellar conversion, take a look at these five reasons to convert your London Cellar.
Create an additional living space
Converting your London cellar can result in creating vital, additional living space at your home. Whether you’re a growing family and short on bedrooms, you need space to work from home or you’d like to create separate living accommodation for your children or parents, a cellar conversion may be the solution for you.
Below-ground cellar space is also ideal for storage use, as your possessions will be kept dry and protected, or as an interior car garage.
Transform your cellar into something special
As well as creating additional living space, from home offices to an extra living room, bedroom or even self-contained accommodation, cellars can also be converted for more alternative uses.
Why not transform your London cellar into something special such as a private gym or swimming pool room, a home cinema, wine cellar or an entertainment and game space.
Whatever your vision, our time will work with you from the planning stages to the final installation and finish, to ensure that you gain the space you desitre and your ideal cellar conversion beomes a reality.
Add value to your London property
Another great reason for converting your cellar is that the extra space can potentially add value to your London property or promise a fantastic return of investment if converted into a self-contained home and made available to rent.
Living space is valuable, especially in the city of London where areas such as Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster top the list of most expensive places to live in the UK and a studio flat can easily cost between £800 to £2000 a month to rent.
So, whether you’re planning to create some extra living space for you to use before you decide to sell, or to create separate living space to rent, then converting your cellar may be the right choice for you.
Protect your cellar from damp
One major reason for converting your cellar is to make the most of your London property and maximise your space rather than allowing your cellar to become water damaged or develop damp.
Water ingress and damp can seriously affect your cellar or basement and cause a range of issues for your property. A thorough assessment and design stage is required before the most efficient basement tanking or waterproofing system can be installed.
