Underground media rooms and underground home cinemas are a growing trend in basement construction, and it’s not hard to see why. Basement media rooms have it all – a private, secure space that can be easily sound-proofed and moodily lit to create an atmospheric home entertainment area. Details such as hidden cables, insulated in-wall speakers, secure fixings on screens and projectors and discreet storage systems are all taken care of by our design and build teams to give you a home cinema experience with wow factor.


Creating a home office below stairs is a smart move if you want to separate yourself away from the rest of the household. Building a bespoke home office means we can work with you to design a space that fits your requirements, incorporating bookshelves, cupboards, electronic cabling and making sure you’re wired for sound and internet. With so much electronic equipment, we focus on damp-proofing to make sure your basement remains water-tight, before transforming it into a warm and welcoming space using clever lighting and heating systems.

    I under-estimated how useful a basement conversion would be

    I under-estimated how useful a basement conversion would be – it’s the one room that we now use most in the house. I’d definitely recommend Cool Basements to any of my clients and contacts.

    The team was very flexible, responsive and provided us with some great advice during the design and planning permission process

    James Little was extremely good at working with architects, building engineers and the Council. We were also impressed with the meticulous attention to the building and engineering requirements while being imaginative at maximising the aesthetics of the building.

    James, Peter and the team are a highly knowledgeable, competent and professional outfit

    They kept us fully informed as our project evolved and worked collaboratively with us to resolve unforeseen problems. As busy professionals, we simply left them to get on with it, which they did. The team were always punctual, reliable, tidy and friendly which certainly helped with neighbours. We’re delighted with our end result and finish, and would certainly hire them again.
