These clients had a very healthy family, that kept the mind & body active. With children and a busy lifestyle, their basement, even though partially finished, was no longer working for their lifestyle. They needed some additional space for Mom’s growing business as well as an extra bedroom and a home gym. So, we stole some space from the unfinished areas to include these new spaces. The remaining current spaces were updated and specifically defined by the flooring. The adult entertaining space was moved to the other side of the basement and a wet bar was added. The kids’ space was on the carpet which included a large secret area underneath the stairs that they could call their own.
We added storage wherever possible and drywall and can lights to the ceiling to brighten up the space. A hidden bookcase was installed behind the wet bar which helped to hide some mechanicals. Within the home gym, we included built-in shelving for towels, water bottles, and yoga/pilates gear. Furthermore, we made sure to incorporate a large wall mirror for yoga/pilates form correction. And as commonly used, we used rubber flooring for comfort and easy maintenance. In the end, the space looks finished and sophisticated just what the homeowners were hoping to reflect!
