Conrad Construction Company renovated this approximately 700 sq/ft basement in an effort to unify it with the first floor renovation recently completed, but with a more masculine twist. Stairway was opened up at bottom by removing part of a wall. Wainscot paneling and new railings were added to match the foyer and stairway on the main floor. The same warm gray and clean white paint colors from the first floor were also used and carpet was replaced with a subtle gray and blue pattern. White built in bookcases with cabinets below welcome you as you approach the bottom of the staircase, where closets were removed. Tucked in the corner, the clients glass display cabinets transformed into a gorgeous built-in to showcase model trains, complete with display lighting. The light wood was painted a warm dark gray for a masculine touch and trim was added to the base and top to complete the built-in look. In the main area, a closet was removed to allow for custom bar/serving area with mini fridge and microwave featuring cabinets painted in the same warm dark gray of the train display and a gorgeous quartzite countertop. The steel beam and support post were exposed, cleaned lightly and clear coated to display the natural beauty of the raw steel. Just beyond the beam, a reclaimed barnwood wall serves as background for large TV with unique sconces on either side. A custom basketball goal made from barnwood and steel was created as well. Additionally, the basement bathroom was updated. New wood look tile flooring laid on the diagonal and custom blue quartzite floating sink, along with large mirror with steel angle frame give this small room lots of character.
