Coolest Basement on the Block

For this Carmel basement remodeling project, our client had one request: “I want the coolest basement on the block.” The husband wanted a spot for swinging his golf club, for his son to play video games with his friends, and for watching sports. The wife wanted a more appealing space downstairs. The couple were open to our creative ideas for the space.  

Our basement remodeling contractors started with the fireplace as a jumping-off point. What the clients considered tearing out, in fact, inspired the look and feel of our design. We cleaned and serviced the fireplace and added a rustic mantel. We pulled the rusty red color throughout the space, pairing it with a tan LVP, neutral sectional, and charcoal walls.

We reorganized the layout, utilizing a larger area for the golf tee and workout equipment to create a country club-type feel and carved out a smaller area for the teenagers to play video games. We filled up the theater area with an extra-large sectional for maximum seating. We also designed a corner for a pub-like dining nook.

With the segmented floor plan, we wanted to create continuity by wrapping around a horizontal board and batten detail and repeating a herringbone accent wall. We added personal touches, like a family photo collage with a chunky custom frame and a photo mural of a favorite golf course.

We mitigated the bright overhead lighting by installing multiple wall washer lights for use during movies and quiet get-togethers. 

The renovation was completed with a modern stair rail, a refreshed mini-bar with a wine rack focal point, and a beautiful bathroom design. Some additional features to note are the custom locker cabinets and floating entertainment centers, as well as two different colorways of a patterned carpet tile.

Additionally, our design scope extended to the upstairs area, where we curated an inviting entryway, a refined powder room for guests, and a modern kitchen tailored to meet the household’s daily needs, creating a harmonious home environment.
