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.

If we were to keep a tv in the playroom of basement, mounting it by the stairs is an option.
