This basement is located in Aspen Woods Estates in SW Calgary. The basement comprises of a main living area, a bathroom, one bedroom, a gym, and a children’s play area under the stairs. Features include LED potlights throughout, vanity lights and dome lighting selected from our dedicated sales rep at Cartwright, an open stairwell, custom barn doors, and a custom shower with a floating vanity. Cold air returns were brought down to the floor level and the lower level’s paint was matched with the existing paintwork in the rest of the home. Just off the basement’s main living area there is also a crafts room that’s fitted with custom cabinets, a bamboo counter top, and shelving. The basement has 5mm luxury vinyl plank throughout, with the exception of carpet in the one bedroom. The entire basement was fitted with a Dricore subfloor, which helps to maintain a cozy atmosphere.
- Children's Play Area
The contemporary bathroom features a 5x3 custom drypac shower base with eye catching marble mosaic tile and high quality floor to ceiling tile on the shower walls. The shower also features a European style 10 mm glass partition with no door. The bathroom has an American Standard enclosed toilet and a high quality floating vanity with ample drawer space. The bathroom also features Ditra-Heat heated floor tiles on a programmable digital thermostat for that added comfort.
The gym is separated from the rest of the basement by handcrafted custom barn doors finished with a custom grey stain. The gym is large enough to accommodate several pieces of exercise equipment and is wired for both TV and the internet, with suitable speakers.
The lower part of the staircase wall was removed and replaced with a railing to open up the stairwell and expand the basement area. The custom railing on the stairs fully matches the one on the home’s main level which really ties the upper and lower levels together seamlessly
Kids play area
The area under the stairs is completely finished and perfect for the children's play area. A small bookshelf opens into a fully developed play area on the other side. We equipped the space with motion sensors and low-heat Lotus potlights for safety. The small barn door covering the entrance is fully customized to match the larger barn doors of the gym.
