The basement in this home had previously been finished, but not very efficiently and without the quality reflected in the rest of the home. The homeowners asked us to create a space for a larger full bath, design built-in Murphy beds in the living area, and give the overall space an updated look. We converted an existing cramped water closet into a storage closet and the adjacent darkroom/ storage area into a comfortable three-piece bathroom. Built-in shelves in the bathroom were designed to provide valuable storage. Plumbing and light fixtures were selected to reflect the character and style in the rest of the home. Murphy beds installed in the living space were a creative and attractive solution to the need for overflow sleeping space. Poorly constructed cabinet doors in the entertainment center were replaced with higher quality ones consistent with the rest of the home. Fresh paint in all areas was the finishing touch to give this basement space the facelift the homeowners desired.
