Our client wanted a modern, but cozy space for the family that includes two teenagers and their friends to hang out. The basement had been used as storage for over 30 years. Previous homeowners had tried to update the dark basement, but when we met with our client - they wanted a full overhaul of the space!

This party basement is equipped with 2 bars, a shuffleboard table, a ping pong table, integrated neon party ceiling lights, a "selfie swing", an adult beverage tasting room (complete with iron locking barn doors) and an 80" flat screen TV.

We started by relocating the stairs from the front of the house to the back, by the pool. Now, sunlight pours down the steps allowing natural light to flood the rooms and a convenient pool bathroom is right around the corner with storage for pool towels and wet suits.

Repeating wood by using it on the walls, ceilings, countertops, and posts keep the monochromatic basement warm and serene. Rich hardwood floors (yes, they can be installed in a basement!) run through out making it feel expansive and inviting for friends.
