Since most of us are spending more time at home right now, you may be noticing changes you would like to make – or even areas that could use just a little sprucing up! If you are one of those people currently working from home and home-schooling your kids, then I am sure you are also thinking “if I could just have a break…!” Even though a kitchen or master bath remodel may be top of mind, don’t forget about the possibility for an adult oasis! Yes, your basement…it is the perfect project to tackle right now! It is an entirely separate level and with the right precautionary measures during construction, it is a project you can feel comfortable starting during these times. Especially if you have a walk out basement, you can have the work site accessed from the exterior since you have a separate entrance to your basement space.
Whether you are a huge wine enthusiast, movie lover, billiard fan or would love to have a great gym just steps away, the basement is the perfect space to expand and create an oasis for yourself. This project I worked on for my clients is living proof. Yes, you can have a break from your first floor living space – which is probably pretty occupied right now…
We were able create a sensual adult oasis to fit our client’s needs and goals in their basement. Aside from the wine/coffee bar and a hidden under staircase home office, the remaining basement space accommodated a 600-bottle capacity walk in wine cellar, a gym and a media/entertainment area. Ahhh yes, open a bottle of Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Rouge and enjoy the aromatic smells lounging in this basement space.
We were able to tastefully accentuate a modern Hawaiian Tiki bar theme for the coffee/wine bar station. Plus some of the rare find décor items that our clients had collected from their trips over time beautifully tied this theme to the rest of the space. A leaf/strand like pedant light and wave pattern wall tiles were just some of the touches we incorporated in to the design to bring the beachy relaxation in.
Wouldn’t you want to be quarantined in this basement? You can certainly create your own adult oasis and your basement can easily turn from drab to fab!
