Building nanny quarters in a basement creates a self-contained living space; this means there is a definite distinction between your nanny’s home and your own family home. The fact that basement nanny quarters can cover the entire footprint of your home means that there is plenty of room to include a bedroom, kitchen area, lounge and bathroom. It is even possible to extend the quarters out underneath the garden if even more space is required.
What are the advantages of basement nanny quarters?
- Any basement conversion will add value to your home
- Your nanny can live nearby without being part of your main home
- There is the option for the basement to have its own separate entrance meaning your nanny will have freedom to come and go without disturbing you and your family
- In the long term the basement can be used for rental income or as a guest suite
