Basement Renovation

A "work in progress" is what we discovered when our client hired us to transform this partially finished basement into an extended entertainment area. Their main floor was no longer an option for holidays and celebrations with their extended family and friends. They felt restless, uneasy and unsettled knowing that the room had great potential but realized that they did not have the expertise to pull it all together. (Curious about what it looked like before? See HERE)

(Fig. 1) While the fireplace was providing comfort and warmth it was also in desperate need of substance and balance. We designed a custom built-in with detailed cornice moldings and dimmer controlled lighting that beautifully highlights the clients display of cherished mementos collected throughout the years. Closed cabinets on the lower portion of the built in hides and stores electronics, CDs, DVDs and family movies that are kept close at hand.

(Fig. 2) Picking up the pace for a more lively evening with friends and relatives, we created an area for guests to sit with a drink and converse. A mirrored wet bar reflecting light into the space enhances a more spacious feeling to the room. 

(Fig. 3) To balance and harmonize the space, we designed a second smaller built-in which complements the one above. Deeper storage cabinets easily accommodate awkward sized game boxes, books and treasured family photo albums. Dimmer controlled lighting features a display of unique accessories completing the overall design.
