Northern VA Contractor Remodels Basement in 1960's Arlington Home
Remodeling or finishing your basement is a great opportunity to have more living space in your home. Because the structure is already there to work with, you just have to decide how you want your basement to look. Do you want a media room, game room, in-home gym, guests room, additional living space, or a mixture of various things? The possibilities are endless and it’s a great way to use an otherwise unused space in your home. The basement we’re going to look at was in a 1960’s home in Arlington, VA that uses the space in various ways with a contemporary style.
Basement Design and Details
The owners of this home in Arlington, VA knew how they wanted their home to look. They wanted the upstairs portion of their home renovation to be very open and to have the feel of a beach house so it would feel as though they were on vacation when they were upstairs, while still making it more formal. For the basement they wanted it to be less formal and a place for them to go and relax. The colors used in this basement were used throughout the rest of the home renovation. The usage of the grey, blues, reds and whites really tied the design together. The homeowners took an outdated home and instantly modernized it with this color scheme and accents.
This basement included a living space for the homeowners to escape to whenever they wanted to get away and have some peace and quiet. It also contained a bar and wine rack, making the space great for entertaining and having a few friends over. Basements are an ideal area for entertaining, especially if you have children. You can put them to bed at a reasonable time and then not have to worry about waking them up if you are having a social gathering in your basement.
This basement remodel in Arlington, VA also included a library/study area complete with bookshelves and a desk. This was a great spot for the homeowners to store their book collection. It beautifully displays them in one convenient location.
