Another Basement Reno

This basement was blue from top to bottom.... waves of faux finishing filled this large space.  Now the only blue is the regal feel on the floor that now adds to the elegant charm of this new man-cave.  The bar has been updated with ledgstone and raised panel detailing.  One wall has been covered with cork for safe dart games, exhibiting sports paraphernalia and is now the focal point for the games area.  The cosy seating area near the fireplace features this large window with room darkening drapery to enjoy watching a game or a movie on the new big screen TV anytime of the day.

Basement Renovation

Entertainment set in a Country Club elegance was the criteria for these clients.  The new focal point is a wall of stacked Ledgestone and a wrap-around maple mantle that adds warmth and charm to the plasma TV and smooth front gas fireplace.

Earth tones and natural elements are important to the theme which reflects the view of the exterior garden and pool area.  

The goal was to bring the inside out welcoming the beauty of the outside garden to flow in.

The original carpet flooring (photo below) was replaced by an old-world look of travertine marble that is similar to the exterior patio stones. 

The floor is now heated which is especially wonderful for basements. 

The wall below with the 2 doors was removed to open the area and to drop in a new set of stairs!

Fireplaces

Fireplace designs come in a variety of styles and materials to warm up any room ..... traditional, contemporary or transitional.... this is usually the main focal point. Marble, granite, stone and wood are all beautiful elements of designing fireplaces for living & dining rooms, bathrooms, bedroom sitting areas and dual sided to accommodate 2 rooms as well as inside-outside fireplaces as in the photo at the bottom left.
