We all know the living situation in Germany. Especially in the big cities, the living space is never big enough and you try to expand it somehow. A successful solution to the problem of lack of living space would be the attic. There you can live really elegant, if you have an extra Room on the roof designed. Today, however, we want to turn our gaze in a different direction and take a closer look at the basement room, as it is often neglected and used only as a storeroom for old and unusable things. But who actually his Expand living space would like to expand the basement so that it gains new living space. Stay with us if you want to know more about it!
Making the underground space habitable is no easy task. But if you intend to gain additional living space, you must design a properly thought-out design concept in front of the basement room extension. What exactly can one do with the available underground space? Or put another way: what is your lack of space in your apartment? Do you need a workshop or a private gym? Would you like to design an additional study on the bottom floor and have a modern home office? Many options are available to you – from the workroom to the hobby room to the children’s playroom everything would be possible. Here it depends primarily on your priorities and personal needs, of course, on your financial resources.
Usually, a basement room has no or, at best, higher windows. But do not let despair of the dark room, because there are such design methods that can illuminate every square centimeter. Bright colors and proper lighting are the first choice here. Choose wall colors in soft pastel shades, paint the ceiling white and you get a cozy basement apartment. Then you can choose bright pieces of furniture or whatever you need. Avoid the dark colors to make your underground four walls look wider and lighter.
And last but not least, you still have to think about the good ventilation under the ground at the start of such an expansion project. The refuge of enough fresh air is vital and makes the basement habitable and comfortable. That’s the only way you can feel comfortable in your basement, regardless of the functions you now attribute to it.
We wish you a lot of success and good luck in the expansion of your basement room!
