Photo tour of a finished basement remodeling project in a Craftsman style home.
Plagued by out-of-date wood paneling and fluorescent lighting, this basement in a historical Minnesota Craftsman-style home was in desperate need of renovation.
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.
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.
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.
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 wet bar adds extra convenience and utility to the basement. Quartersawn oak cabinetry conceals appliances. Granite countertops provide an upscale look.
The old floor plan partitioned the lower level, making the space seem cramped.
The new floor plan is much more open and welcoming. The owners enjoy their new basement rec area and entertaining bar.
