We’ve been taking this basement in phases due to budgets.
First, it was simply painting the walls, updating the trim, and painting the golden oak cabinetry.
Then we added in a basement bathroom, by dividing out 1/2 the utility room.
Next, we knew we eventually wanted to do something with that big empty space behind the couch. And being entertaining is key, phase 2 we decided to add in a bar up-cycling the cabinetry that we had demo’d out from the kitchen in this home. A little fresh paint and it’s as good as new!
And lastly, adding that perfect pop of color and personality to the space by adding an accent tile wall, open shelving, a built in bench and finally those styling finishing touches! You can read all about phase 4 here.
