1920's Remodel and Basement ExtensionContemporary Kitchen, London
The kitchen is practical and welcoming and is perfect for a bust family. It also incorporates a spiral wine cellar.
CLPM project manager tip - spiral cellars can be installed in most ground floor locations. You do not need to have a basement. You generally don't need planning permission to install them and they can usually be installed in under a week without much disruption.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Small basement extensionsA good, cost-effective alternative extension of space is to make a small basement extension, like this ingenious wine cellar, accessible right from your kitchen. Such an alteration may not require planning permission, but it is always prudent to check with your council. It does however, require a thorough structural design.You can of course extend under a larger part of your house, but in most cases this is very expensive.
