We have recently purchased new home and are looking for a design for our unfinished basement. Our goal is to have a design that we would be able to use with contractors to complete the work in the winter.
1)Family Area – include a Home Theater and surround. We would like to have a sectional couch with recliners for this area.
2)Snack Center – includes a mini fridge, microwave and a couple cabinets and counter. Possible built in side wall? No wider than 4ft.
3)Exercise Room – would like a small enclosed area with French doors or Barn door (our house it arts and crafts style). Would like it to be angled wall at the doors to add uniqueness.
4)Bedroom/Office – still undecided about this we would like one, but not sure how to make it all fit.
5)Full Bath – we have a rough-in for a toilet, shower and sink. Would like tiled shower.
6)Unfinished Storage area – would like at least 20% of space for storage. Storage under stairs?
7)Open Stair case – would like the bottom stair case to be open to the basement and a column detail (support beam).
8)Ceilings – possibility of a tray/boxed surround around ceiling?
9)Lighting – Can lighting with dimmers
House Color Scheme is neutral – White trim, tan walls, Dark wood flooring, beige carpeting, open rail staircase.
1) We are coordinating the work ourselves, so our focus is on keeping the costs down.
2) Ability for contractor to use submitted plans
3) Maximum use of space – open design.
4) Height from ceiling to floor is 7ft 7in, 7ft at ductwork.
