Looking for a home office, exercise room, bonus room or just an extra bedroom? You don’t need to look far. Unfinished basements, third floor areas and garages are the perfect solution. Remodeling is an easy way to transform these under-used spaces to meet your specific needs.
Above is an example of a walkout basement that has been transformed into a beautiful living area. The focal point of the basement is a natural, stacked stone, gas fireplace perfect for winter nights. Accent walls of shiplap create a cozy atmosphere. This touch of farmhouse styling complements the stone. A wall of folding glass exterior doors allows light to flood into what could be a dark space. The doors also allow homeowners to enjoy beautiful views and easy access to their backyard.
Above is another example of a stunning remodel. Again the focal point is the gas fireplace. This time it is flanked by custom built in shelving and cabinetry. The large, full view windows eliminate the need for additional lighting during the day. Recessed lighting was chosen to avoid the obstruction of the view or traffic flow that sometimes occurs with hanging light fixtures. A subtle color palate keeps the room light and airy.
Below is a basement that has been repurposed into a game room, complete with a wet bar. This space will make the perfect man cave with a pool table and large screen television. Tile is always a great choice for flooring, especially if you plan to entertain large crowds. Cleaning up spills on tile is much easier than in carpeted areas. Hard surfaced flooring also reduces the presence of dust and allergens.
