We collaborated with the homeowner to design a stylish and functional finished basement for relaxation and entertainment. We improved accessibility by relocating the side door underneath the deck and adding a window in its previous location to increase natural light. Can lighting provides a soft, even glow throughout the basement, while elegant pendant lighting over the large Kitchenette island creates a focal point for food preparation. Black matte fixtures in the Kitchenette and bathroom add a modern touch. An electric fireplace under the entertainment center in the living area provides a cozy ambiance. We also knocked down walls to create more usable space for a full bathroom, installed a built-in wall system for desk space in the office room, and created in-wall storage in the home gym room to maximize organization and functionality.
