The new homeowners wanted to reinvent this unfinished basement into a usable, livable space that fits with the aesthetic updates found throughout the home. A glass panel door at the top of the stairwell allows natural light to filter down, while the updated banister and carpeting immediately confirm that this is no longer a dingy storage space. Asbestos tiles were encapsulated for safety and peace of mind, while updates to paint, flooring and upgraded LED lighting modernize the space. The addition of a bathroom gives the homeowners improved flexibility and resale value. What was once dim and dated is now a welcoming, functional canvas for the homeowners to furnish.
