Blank Slate Basement


PROJECT INFO: For 40 years, this basement sat unfinished and filled with storage. With the kids grown and married, they needed space for their expanded family to hang out and for grandkids to run around. As the basement was completely below grade, we had added outside access with a previous project preparing for contractor point of entry for this renovation. The completely reimagined basement includes a full bathroom, TV lounge area, dining, kitchenette and buffet area. All while maintaining unfinished storage space on the other side of the basement. For finishing, we used a mixture of quartz and butcherblock for the countertops, custom brass/butcherblock shelving, fluted glass doors and wallpaper accents for texture variation. Sconces surround the perimeter of the space as part of the layered lighting design. This is a room for everyone to enjoy.

“You-Neek Designs did a fabulous job with designing the layout of this empty space. We thought we knew what we wanted, but once we saw layout options it helped us rein in reality. It’s a fabulous design and the construction process was so easy. We have zero regrets!”
