    Keep on top of the costsThe basic costs of forming a basement – the digging out, the retaining structure and the damp-proofing system – mean that the starting point for costing a basement will be 50% to 75% higher than for basic work above ground. However, there are things that can be done to stop costs escalating. Bringing direct daylight into a basement will certainly add cost – particularly if you want to add large areas of glazing or to dig out large exterior lightwells. So one way to keep costs under control is to use the basement for things that do not need daylight, such as a utility room. While a basement might seem like a very expensive way to create a utility room, if by doing this you can free up ground-floor space for a larger kitchen (for example) then it might well make sense.
