CELLAR OR BASEMENT CONVERSION- WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Cellar conversion specialists
Cellars, being situated lower in relation to the curb height than basements are less likely to have an external window as a result. If they do, they are normally more towards the top of the wall. Cellar conversions are more commonly used as storage as they are usually smaller in size than basements and, being lower below ground level are cooler. For this reason, cellars have traditionally been used as storage for foods and drinks such as wine (hence ‘wine cellar’) or for ales in public houses.
Cellar conversion can create a useful living and/or storage space for you and your family.
Basement conversion specialists
A basement conversion is generally a larger below-ground space and, as such, it is often used to house the home’s heating system and serves as a larger storage area. It is normally set less than half way below the height of the road curb and, due to basements sitting slightly higher than a Cellar, they often have an external window.
Due to their size, basements are more commonly converted into additional living space and, when converted properly, can serve most purposes from a bedroom to a kitchen.
