The entrance to the basement begins as the carpeted stairway turns the corner, to an opening made to feel even more open by the pony wall next to the last three steps in the stairway from the main floor. We added wood accents throughout the space, including the reclaimed wood mantle above the contemporary 30” square fireplace.
Making efficient use of the space by the stairs, the five-foot wet bar brings a touch of luxury with its dual-zoned wine fridge and shelf that matches the cabinets. Little extras, like the hardware on the cabinets, give a subtle nod to an old-fashioned farmhouse, while surrounded by modern convenience. The tiled backsplash draws the eye upward toward the beguiling shelf of elixirs above.
In the office, much needed for the days when working from home is required, the luxury vinyl plank continues the modern farmhouse feel.

Carpeting underfoot signals a separate zone for the media area. A large flatscreen blends into the deep blue accent wall, with all unsightly wires hidden by our custom TV Package. The viewing experience is top tier with the 7.1 Surround Sound we installed.
Behind the seating, a built-in niche with custom shelving maximizes easily accessible storage space, allowing for a personal flair with decor along the top shelf. And tucked away in its own workout nook, a treadmill doesn’t get in the way of anyone relaxing on the couch, yet still has a perfect view of the television.
In the bathroom, the 31” vanity with white quartz countertop celebrates the look of natural wood. A taupe subway tile backsplash above the sink brings the colour story together, while the tiles surrounding the Hytec tub and shower combo are a shade darker to add interest. The standard chrome plumbing fixtures gleam in the brightly lit room.
The luxury vinyl plank continues into the home office, allowing the room to double as a home gym with ease. Custom built-in shelves offer storage for workout gear and office necessities. Choosing open shelves instead of a closet offers the added bonus of creating a little more space in a smaller room. We also installed an additional internet connection for the office computer.
Investing in a basement renovation can be a big decision and understanding all the facts is crucial to the success of your project. If you have any questions about the financing process give us a call and we’d be happy to help.
