With two young children, it was important for our client to find a firm that could design and build a new finished basement where both mom and dad could entertain family and friends and the kids could play without the fear of cluttering the home’s first floor; and our company was fortunate to be chosen for this task!
Maintaining an open, yet functional floor plan was critical for our client. In addition to designing a nice comfortable flow around the central staircase and mechanical room, we were charged with the task of creating some distinct entertaining areas. To start, we began by modifying the walls of the central staircase to open up more fully to both sides of the basement. On one side rests the kids’ portion of the basement where they can have fun and play freely, while the other side into the rear of the home where the walkout basement invitingly brings in rays of natural light rests the bar, cocktail area, and banquet and TV lounge area. The bar is an anchoring element for the entire space where our client can entertain their guests for years to come. Directly adjacent to the bar is a charming cocktail area that is distinguished by a custom carpet inlay installed flush with the durable and low-maintenance, distressed hardwood-look floor tile.
Nearby the cocktail area is a custom built-in banquette that was creatively designed into the home’s existing rear bumpout. On the opposite side of the banquette and TV lounge area, is a relaxing massage room and separate large storage room. And tucked comfortably adjacent to the office is a full bathroom with refreshingly unique concrete tiles.
All in all, we are thrilled to have worked on this rewarding project; and can’t wait to come back in the near future to share with our client the true delight of the space we created together!
