In this recent and very exciting project, we were called in to help with a basement that was very outdated and needed a lot of work. With wood paneling walls and ceiling that was stuck in a timewarp from the 1970’s, it needed a total makeover to turn this dated space into a fun and modernized space.
The stairs leading down to the basement were archaic and weary. We opened up both sides of the staircase, getting rid of the wall and installing a brand new banister, enabling the room to open up and look refreshing and inviting.
The wood from all of the walls was completely removed and painted a lovely taupe color, and the trim and poles were painted a crisp white. Previously the space under the stairs had been completely unused. We turned it into a wine bar and storage, with much needed shelving.
A new bathroom for the basement was also installed, as well as a TV and entertainment area. It is fair to say that the home owners will be spending a lot of time in their new basement.
The transformation of the whole area is stunning; it does not look like the same space. Take a look for yourself.
