    Everything in this slideshow

    • Craftsman Style Home Needed a Basement Makeover

      Plagued by out-of-date wood paneling and fluorescent lighting, this basement in a historical Minnesota Craftsman-style home was in desperate need of renovation.

    • Craftsman Style

      With a fresh design inspired by existing Arts and Crafts details, the basement now functions as an entertainment space. Reproduction furniture and light fixtures reinforce the Craftsman style.

    • Arched Doorway

      An arched doorway reflects the arc of the built-in wall niche found during demolition. New iridized glass in the doors reflects light from the basement's two windows.

    • Hiding the Mechanical Units

      Giving the basement a finished appearance required some camouflage artistry, including shrouding a steam radiator and other mechanicals behind wood wainscoting and trim. The room's two existing window wells bring in the basement's only natural light.

    • Shelves and Architectural Details

      Demolition revealed this elegant wall arch, which inspired some of the basement's design and allows for generous shelving. A new stencil contributes to the period styling found throughout.

    • A Home Bar for Entertaining

      A wet bar adds extra convenience and utility to the basement. Quartersawn oak cabinetry conceals appliances. Granite countertops provide an upscale look.

    • "Before" Floor Plan

      The old floor plan partitioned the lower level, making the space seem cramped.

    • "After" Floor Plan

      The new floor plan is much more open and welcoming. The owners enjoy their new basement rec area and entertaining bar.
