In this basement remodel, Hae-Soon wanted to entertain in style but her basement came up lacking.  Her goal was to transform her dull space into an entertaining haven with a fun place to gather, storage for her wine collection and a stylish bath to complement the rest of the space.  She needed someone with a design style bold enough to match her own and the knowledge to execute the renovations to a T.

The anchor of the new design has to be this upscale bar.  Multicolored Matchstick Glass mosaics vertically face the bar in smoky tones of grey.  We repeated those same grey tones in the polished granite countertop.   Special lighting adds drama with accent rope-lights under the bar top and backlit frosted resin shelving on the walls. To keep their wine collection properly stored, we added a climate-controlled wine cellar constructed with stained concrete flooring and a custom glass door.

In keeping with the upscale flavor, the new bath is a contemporary luxury.  The vanity floats on a wall of porcelain tiles with an oxidized metal finish and a simple mirror.  The mirror and metallic walls reflect the light of two mini pendants.   A handheld shower is mounted on a slide bar, while a waterfall faucet flows into the vessel sink. Both the sink and the bathtub have square lines, as do the flat panel doors and drawers of the vanity.

No need to go out when your entertaining space is this luxurious and exciting and this basement remodel achieved Hae-Soon’s goal.
