Kid-Friendly Basement - Kitchenette

Our clients wanted to finish the walkout basement in their 10-year old home. They were looking for a family room, craft area, bathroom and a space to transform into a “guest room” for the occasional visitor. They wanted a space that could handle a crowd of young children, provide lots of storage and was bright and colorful. The result is a beautiful space featuring custom cabinets, a kitchenette, a craft room, and a large open area for play and entertainment. Cleanup is a snap with durable surfaces and movable storage, and the furniture is easy for children to rearrange. Photo by John Reed Foresman.

It's a Terra Cotta color, but every stained concrete floor company will have slightly different colors. I would just show a photo of a floor you like to your concrete staining company and they should be able to get you pretty close.

Love the lux rug against concrete. Where can I get it/who makes this?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchenette enables the family and their houseguests to eat and play all in the same place. The entire basement is a space that both adults and kids can control and maximize.

Too much white for the basement? I guess not if we paint walls. We do want a full-size fridge in basement. Like these built in cabinets - possibly idea for entryway?
