Unique Garden Basement Ideas For London Living
Thinking of adding a basement extension to a London property but the space under the house is not quite big enough? Why not extend the basement further with the space underneath the garden?
A garden basement can have many benefits for a property owner that has installed it; for example, it will not take up any additional space at a garden’s ground level and so there is no loss of light or space and the garden’s aesthetics can remain intact.
So whether it’s for a musician, tradesman, artist or entrepreneur, there are many ways to add a unique garden basement extension.
Underground Garden Shed
Whatever the size, every garden needs a shed. But with the limited space available in central London, often having the space for a decent one can be a challenge. A subterranean basement shed can be the perfect answer and offers ample room for bikes, boxes, tools and garden toys, without taking up any precious garden space.
Music Room Under The Garden
All good musicians understand the importance of practice, but living in a terraced London property could present a challenge if neighbours are opposed to impromptu performances resonating through the walls. A subterranean music room with proper soundproofing can keep all the sound underground so property owners can play at any time the muse strikes.
Subterranean Brewery Or Winery
A subterranean space is ideal for attaining the cooler temperatures needed for brewing homemade beers or fermenting wine. Space allowing, it’s even possible to integrate a bar into the mix, ideal for hosting intimate tasting parties.
Private Garden Basement Office
One of the most popular choices for a garden basement is the humble office. When working extra hours from home, it helps to be in a beautiful space that still separates home and work life – putting that space outside make it even easier. Knowles works closely with talented London architects to create relaxing and elegant rooms anyone would be happy to work some overtime in.
Underground Art Studio
What city attracts more of the artistically inclined than London? A well lit garden basement is the perfect space to create an art studio. Secluded and private, developing or established artists can concentrate on their next masterpiece without the fear of interruption.
A Spa Under The Garden
Who would benefit from a space to unwind and recover from the hectic buzz of London life? A basement spa provides the perfect environment for some quality rest and relaxation, while offering an array of health benefits too. If the space is available, a swimming pool could be included in the plans as well.
