Marc & Beth’s Naperville Basement Remodel
These homeowners were absolute go-getters, full of personality and life. And we wanted to reflect that in their basement. For Marc, we added a special space that included all of his training gear and athletic accomplishments. For the kids, we added a book-nook reading area underneath the stairs and a gaming area tucked behind a secret doorway, disguised as a bookcase. This helped to keep the noise level down for everyone to enjoy the basement at the same time. A TV lounge area and wet bar were included for entertaining purposes; the island was raised up an additional 6” to bar height for better entertaining space. We also used tray ceiling over the island to accentuate ceiling height, create a focal point, and raise light fixtures. The foundation created a bay area perfect for a gaming table within the bar area. An extra bedroom and 3-piece bathroom was added for guest space. The remaining center area was used as a flex space, for toys and running around. But allowing room to grow as the kids get older, possibly a game room or pool table for growing teens. At the time of pictures, the homeowners had not decorated yet, which left the walls a blank canvas for their creativity.
