Basement Makeover: From Dated & Dull To Entertaining-Friendly!
In this must-see before and after, designer Karin Bennett overhauled a young family’s unusable basement and transformed it into the ultimate hangout. The once cold and drafty space was sinking due to structural complications, so after a four-month re-construction, it was ready for a designer’s touch. See how a large sectional, stylish storage (made out of budget-friendly melamine) and black shiplap walls add interest to the TV area, while navy blue cabinetry and a spacious island in the kitchen area make hosting family and friends a breeze. Karin added a hardworking mudroom with a custom loft door and updated the bathroom with a seamless tiled shower. Who says basements can’t be ultra-cool?
