Must-See Makeover: A Basement Becomes The Ultimate Family Hangout
See how designer Erin Feasby of Feasby & Bleeks Design transforms a family basement into a hardworking space that maximizes style and square-footage. Get her tips for combining functionality, glamorous decor and budget-friendly finishes to create your own entertaining hub.
The homeowners wanted a luxurious look that was laid-back enough for family life. A grand fireplace — clad in bold, onyx marble-look porcelain that reads as natural stone — sets the tone for the room. Low storage built-ins let natural light from the windows shine through, while a Saarinen table offers a place to play board games. Erin made smart use of space by tucking the kitchenette under the stairs. To keep things consistent, she used the same cabinetry and countertops from the kitchen in the adjacent laundry room, where inexpensive hexagon tile flooring injects pattern and personality. In the bathroom, brass trim echoes the detailing around the fireplace while adding a glam hit to the industrial-style, marble vanity.
See this basement in our April 2017 issue, on newsstands from March 6th.
