Open Basement Allows for Several Activity Options While Still Remaining Connected
At the opposite end of this family's basement, a recreation area contains a pool table, above which is an elegant, modern chandelier. This gives the family three different options for activities while still remaining connected to each other in their basement space: working out, relaxing and watching tv or playing pool.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, this basement guest room was unfinished, it had a leak issue coming up through the floor, a strong mildew smell, and was cluttered with storage items and ironing board. Needless to say, all is new in this room; finished walls, the carpet, lighting and furniture. The window ledge was also leveled and the closet was moved. Now, the space is light, bright and functional.
Mosaik Design and Fig Studio remodeled this basement to include entertainment features that the kids would love. Hightop tables with simple wood barstools provide the perfect place for an afternoon snack while enjoying a game of ping pong.
In this remodeled basement, heavy, gold drapes hang on garden-level windows, while a large L-shaped sectional is positioned in front of a padded ottoman and leather armchair. Track lighting, a table lamp, and a lampshade chandelier provide beautiful lighting for the basement space.
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.
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.
Wood-Paneled Living Space in Basement Featuring Earth Tones and Global Prints
The wall paneling in this exotic basement space is Hawaiian ohia wood, which gives the space the look of either midcentury modern or Asian design. The earthy tones of the contemporary sectional sofa and leather chair and the global-inspired prints of the ottoman and side table create a chic space for the homeowner who loves to entertain.
Exposed concrete walls give this basement hangout an industrial vibe. The space is made more inviting with a pool table, large black and white portraits and a white couch with bold lettered throw pillows.
Comfortable neutral furnishings with a subtle diamond pattern provide a cozy sitting area around the television in this gray basement. A black kitchen island with a dark marble countertop creates a bar area perfect for entertaining. Unusual metal pendant lights provide bright light in the space and serve as an interesting art piece.
In the billiard area, designers created a masculine design by using a dark-neutral color palette to anchor the space. They brought in a modern pool table with traditional green felt, and they created built-in storage for the homeowners pool cues. They also added custom, built-in bookshelves to showcase the homeowner's book collection.
The basement kitchenette uses a black-and-white color palette combined with stainless steel to create a chic, contemporary design. A trio of pendant lights hangs above a sleek bar-height table and black barstools, while a stainless steel backsplash provides a chic setting for the sink and cabinet area.
