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.
Existing wood used to frame the house was whitewashed and used for the cladded wall and charming bench area. An active gear closet stores all outdoor clothes for quick and easy pick-up before exiting the house.
This look inside the guest bedroom closet shows the efficient space that uses a hanging rod, freestanding shoe rack, baskets, hamper and upper shelf to keep clothes and accessories visible and orderly.
To create a designated laundry and mudroom for this home, designers repurposed part of the garage. They raised the floor, framed in walls and added heated floors (heavenly!).

A sliding door creates a wide entry into this laundry room and lets in lots of natural light. The room itself is soothing in blue and has all the storage (room for rolling carts, shelves for hampers, hanging rods) a large family needs.
Spacious and luxurious, the oversized walk-in master closet provides ample storage for year-round wardrobes. Custom-built shelving and crown molding draws attention to the thoughtful craftsmanship that takes this closet design to the next level.
Next time you feel like a hoarder, look more closely at your home spaces. There are so many ideas you can employ to create storage. This mudroom is perfect for a growing family. It features a window for natural light as well as several floor to ceiling cabinets for coats and a cute bench.
This pet-friendly mudroom features a space for cleaning wet pets, housing food and water dishes, and storing food, accessories, dog crates or litter boxes. "A large utility sink can be helpful for refilling dishes or cleaning muddy paws, as can towel bars or towel hooks," says Jeffrey S. Brown, president of J.S. Brown & Co.
