Mike & Melissa’s Downers Grove Basement Remodel
This basement was an unfinished space when we started. Therefore, we had to come up with a design that relied on an open concept, while still finishing the space for multiple uses. There was quite a bit of mechanicals that we had to strategically hide in unfinished spaces, closets and cabinetry. With small children, we wanted to dedicate a large portion of the space for fun and activities. Furthermore, we added a guest bedroom and a full 3-piece bathroom. Bathrooms are a great add on to any basement, so you don’t need to run upstairs to use the toilet or wash your hands. Lastly, we added a wet bar for entertainment purposes. This also added convenience to the space with storage space for snacks and beverages. Perfect for when you are watching a movie and don’t want to miss a moment to go upstairs and refill.
