Make the most of levelsWhen you add a basement for additional living space, there is a danger that it can feel rather cut off. Careful design to make the most of the different levels can be a wonderful device, as can be seen with several of the previous images and also with this example. Here, a lower-ground floor, which is not entirely below ground, has been created and extended to use as a kitchen/dining/living space. It opens out onto a terrace at the same level, with steps leading up to the garden. On the floor above, the original living space opens onto the roof of the lower level, which acts as a balcony and has steps down to the garden.What would you use a basement conversion for? Tell us your ideas or experiences in the Comments section.

Maximise new levelsHere, a lower-ground floor, which is not entirely below ground, has been created and extended to house a family kitchen/dining/living space. It opens out onto a terrace at the same level, with steps leading up to the garden. There’s an added benefit to this conversion, as the roof of the extended lower level doubles up as a handy outdoor terrace space for the upper-ground floor, with steps that lead down to the main garden.How would a basement conversion benefit your home?

Exploit your extension roofThe addition of a ground-floor extension can also create the opportunity for a roof terrace or balcony at first-floor level. However, be aware that while the extension itself might fall within the realms of Permitted Development, the use of the roof space for a terrace would not come with that and would require Planning Permission.

Keep an open mindFrom an aesthetic point of view, there’s no right way to light a period home, so let go of any preconceptions you may have. While there are certain technical things you can get right or wrong, you don’t have to be confined to the way lighting was incorporated in the past.Find out how to mix contemporary and period features

The Victorian semi-detachedThe emerging middle classes lived in larger terraced and semi-detached houses, just streets away from the more crowded homes of the working classes. They were more likely to have flushing toilets and servants quarters in the loft or basement, depending on the status of the family. Their internal finishes would have been more elaborate, particularly in the public rooms. Tour an elegantly renovated Victorian villa
