Sometimes making the most of your home is about getting more out of those rooms that are sometimes overlooked. While we tend to focus all our attention on areas like the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, there are parts of the house that we could be used that are underused and could take a property in London to the next level in terms of design and comfort.
Take a basement as an example, to a lot of people, the basement is used to store items they can’t find a home for elsewhere in the house, but in truth, a lot of these are probably never used anyway and should be thrown out. Most basements have much greater potential than a simple storage facility. Successful renovation, expansion or excavation of a basement usually creates a part of the house that is not just eminently useful, but also extremely comfortable.
Basements can be turned into a kind of den or an extra sitting room, a self contained flat for guests or staff, a wine cellar or as an alternative place to hide away and relax in when the living room is being used. Basements also make fantastic home offices as there is little noise from outside. Even if you renovate the basement just to create a cleaner and brighter storage area, you will have made a huge difference to the atmosphere of your home.
