Renovation + Remodel
Duration: 5 months
When we moved into our house, the basement was untouched from the 70s. Equipped with faux wood paneling, drop ceiling and a funky tiny half bath. The space was considered finished but we only used it for storage. So we decided it was time to update.
We started by making a list of functions that it needed to serve; entertaining, storage, laundry and a bathroom.
What was once a dated half bath, we expanded to a full. By moving the side by side laundry to a stackable next to the stairs, we were able to fit a 4'x3' shower and a storage closet.
This wall was blank and in dire need of something. We felt a functional focal point could help to create a more intimate setting, so we used a horizontal shiplap to tie the texture into the stairs. Adding a frame tv, mantel and electric fireplace to complete the entertaining space.
