A complete redesign of an existing finished basement lead to a highly detailed space designed for family entertainment and gathering space. The impact of the lower ceiling heights was reduced by adding a detailed wainscoting throughout the space. The use of engineered hardwood flooring gave the space a warm and comfortable feel while contrasting the custom built-in cabinetry and brick fireplace. As a new primary gathering space for the family safety was a large concern. Adding an oversized egress window in the existing basement foundation provided peace of mind.
