Dedicate a space for kids to get the wiggles out, especially for those days when outside play is not an option. Smart D2 Playrooms converted this three-car garage into a kid’s gym complete with climbing wall, climbing rope, tumble mats, saucer swings, art center and individual nooks for the kids.
A basketball court and climbing wall are among the amenities of this luxury waterfront home in Greenwich, Connecticut. In this space, bold blue trim pops against sleek white walls, and high windows bring in loads of natural light.
To paint the cinder block base of the garage bays, the homeowners used a black one-coat acrylic paint that's made for high-moisture, high-traffic rooms. The one-coat coverage makes the painting process quick, easy and budget-friendly.
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.
Gray walls with white trim create a clean background for this at-home gym. A mirrored wall and barre provide a great place to practice ballet or weight lifting routines, while the vaulted ceiling keeps the small space feeling open.
