Basement Family Room and Bar

In a downtown home, every bit of space counts. This basement family room and bar is no exception.

Our aim was to create a luxurious space that would be as enjoyable as the rest of this home. Utilizing odd spaces under the stairs, we incorporated a bar, built-in Kitchen & Co. cabinetry, and a focal point containing the television with decorative wallpaper and Emperador Dark stone detailing.

A sectional and ottoman utilizing a woven fabric and contrast piping continue the stylized feel of this space.

It is 6' wide and just over 2' deep (return walls are 26" deep - vanities are 23-3/4" deep plus 7/8" door thickness plus 1/2" counter overhang).
