Basement Fit Outs
The fit out is the final stage of creating your basement conversion, and essentially means making the interior space habitable. This step is completed by our team of builders, decorators, and can involve an interior designer if you prefer, that we would be happy to work with.
Our design team will discuss the fittings and finishes that you would like well before the project nears completion, and most aspects of the final finish will be agreed during the design process. This ensures that we have the correct information for the installation of stair cases, addition of power sockets, and have information about varied flooring materials, raised platforms, or items that are built in to your basement conversion.
The fit out is completed before the final decoration to create a secure shell space within your new basement. A sub floor is created with screed to create a level surface, and under-floor heating is added at this stage if it is something that was specified in your design.
Electrical work is incorporated before it is plastered – our design team recommend that you decide on the positioning of your electronics before this phase so that we can conceal as many wires as possible.
Once the flooring and walls have been completed, our carpenters and joiners hang doors, lay flooring, and add decorative finishes. Bathrooms, kitchens, and entertainment rooms will receive a second fix at this stage before the decorators begin their work.
