Rustic Modern Family Room Decor From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah aimed to create a rustic, refined feel in this multi-purpose basement family room. She chose a soft gray wall paint and Brazilian slate floor tiles to complement the home's original stone fireplace. Functional decor such as built-in cabinets and chic metal kindling bins make for a space that is gorgeous yet practical for a growing family of four.
Stunning Red Couch, Armchair & Ottoman Wow In A Basement Home Theater
Stunning plush sectional, armchair and ottoman in red upholstery and leather excite in this all encompassing basement. Transitionally styled, the space features a home theater with built-in cabinets and fireplace, a wet bar with and additional table and seating, all framed within several different types of wood and stains to match the unique floor. Dropping portions of the ceiling creates a comforting room within a room feel.
In the basement, a sound proofed music studio was added for the family's budding musician. Sound proof panels were already in place, so designers revamped the area with a bright couch, new carpet, and profession style cabinets to make the space complete.
Sconces Add Additional Light to Create Bright, Open Basement
Homeowners wanted a light, open space in their family's basement, so designers opted for a neutral color palette to make the space feel bright. On the opposite wall from the couches, designers created an inset for the large, flat-screen TV to create depth in the space, while on either side of the television, flat, modern sconces add additional light. Dark wood shelving in the corner optimizes storage space, while dark wood panels behind the sconces project light and a dark wood bench provides additional seating.
Neutral Contemporary Basement With Wall for Wine Storage
White sofas and chairs make for a cozy sitting area in this neutral contemporary basement. Mere steps away is a 300-bottle wine-storage wall, complete with a table for enjoying wine tastings with guests.
Complete with a wet bar, this basement junk room turned man cave is just the place for entertaining. The designers kept the original 1920s Spanish tile floors and gave the wood paneling a light whitewash to brighten up the room. The subtle pattern and texture from the sofa mesh with the pattern on the ottoman complement the original flooring without overwhelming it.
This spacious basement features a wall-to-wall shelving unit that has been fitted with convenient pullout drawers for stowing away small Lego pieces. The shelves also provide room for speakers that work with the home's integrated sound system.
Basement Hall With Natural Rock Arch Doorway, Beige Walls and White Molding Over Hardwood Floor
A natural rock structure frames an arch door and window for a fun, textural, castle-like effect in this basement hall. The rock finish is highlighted by the smooth beige walls surrounding it. Hardwood floors and white molding finish the traditional look.
Just across the wall from the living area is the home gym. Separated from the rest of the space by a glass wall, the gym contains a television, built-in shelving for storage, work out machines and a sparring pad. The two-way fireplace pushes heat into this space, allowing the homeowner to get the most out of his workout. The glass wall that separates the spaces allows the gym to be visually connected to the rest of the basement, while remaining physically separated.
