Basement floor


A basement floor equipped with windows, which can therefore be easily ventilated, is able to become another living space. A lot of times the basement is a semi-basement meaning it is half below ground. The Italian term seminterrato means “half below ground”.

Piano interrato

In Italy houses oftentimes have relevant living spaces in the basement floor. When there aren’t enough windows, a lack of light can cause humidity and result as a bad indoor climate that can become a problem. If a second bedroom in a basement floor is not an option for you, it might be a good idea to ask the estate agent about the spatial distribution of the property you are interested in before visiting it.
