YOUR RETROFIT BASEMENT

A retrofit basement is an all-round different prospect to a new build basement. In short a new build project is where nothing exists, it is a blank canvas to be tailored to suit your every need.

A retrofit basement is where either no level below ground exists or there may be an existing cellar or quite often a shallow basement or storage space with poor head height is there and the requirement includes making it a safe living area with a floor low enough for comfortable movement for an adult standing up.

So you have a space or need space, what next? We have our own highly experienced in-house design team, who will meet you and fully discuss your requirements, and undertake the full planning process.

Basement plan

It is very important to create and plan your retrofit basement carefully. There are many factors to consider, including:

  • lighting
  • head height requirements
  • heating
  • means of escape and access

Basement Stairs

There are many types of stairs that can be designed to maximise and create a stunning conversion, we have many ideas and suggestions depending on your requirements.

 

Basement Lighting

 

Natural Lighting

Lighting is the most important aspect to a successful retrofit basement/ conversion. There are many ways to light a basement with natural light, from lightwells that can have either windows or doors to external courtyard areas, or from sunlight tubes or mirror shaft, this photo shows just how effective a mirror shaft can be if fitted correctly.

 

Artificial lighting

It is so important to get this correct, and is an exciting part of the retrofit basement planning.

The photos show the different moods that can be created from a dual basement lighting systems. The central LED spotlights give a crisp white light and the LED wall wash system creates a much softer atmosphere. We have lots of ideas and experience to help you create something very special.
