Basement Design - examples



Sutton Coldfield

This is an almost fairy tale basement design story where upon investing in a large house just off the high street in Sutton Coldfield, Sophie become suspicious of the rather large drop below the floor boards. Upon taking up a few floor boards, we discovered that the drop was nearly 3 meters under every room of the ground floor.

Edgbaston

The house in Edgbaston was under total renovation with every room including the basement was being rebuilt to this ‘IT experts’ exacting specifications. For example, the whole house was wired with CAT 5e and CAT 6a network cables which were colour coded depending on their use and which room they were for.

Walsall

This basement conversion was to allow a study and hobby space away from the children. The basement was quite dark to begin with and natural light was introduced by installing a spindel stair case in the hall, opening the new dry basement up into the main house. The light from the stained glass upstairs, cast a beautiful light show into the basement area.

You have to admit that the before and after photos of this basement conversion are very impressive. This is a perfect demonstration of the opportunity and potential that a basement conversion can offer anybody. No wonder we are using the completed basement photos as our main photos on this website.

Wolverhampton

This amazing cellar with a large vaulted ceiling provided us with a challenge, as the water management system had to perform perfectly, whilst allowing the fantastic vaulted ceiling shape to become the great light reflecting feature of this basement conversion.

Boldmere Road

An older basement conversion had rendered this space useless. You had to duck under several building features and pipes to gain access into the basement. The previous basement system had failed to control the water and a modern water management system had to be installed. We moved the gas and water pipes around the room to allow easy access for this tall dad to his kids play room.

Wylde Green

This large underground space offered plenty of space with desirable design features. There were so many suggestions of how the basements space could be used to its best potential. We converted this basement into a safe, useful, dry and warm room whilst retaining the space and the unique features. The customer could then decorate and furnish the basement to the standard that they desired in safety.

Warmley

This basement was prone to flooding and when we arrived the floor was under several inches of water. The structure had to be repaired so that it provided the primary defence against the leaking water from the neighbouring property. Our water management system was installed to control the water that made it through the walls and the floor. Over this, a basement conversion allowed the room to become dry, warm, safe and useful.
