Kid-Friendly Basement contemporary-basement
 

Kid-Friendly Basement

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.

The table is custom designed and made - see discussion with ckurtz & others below. The table and chairs are tagged on the photo. If you are thinking of having one made, I would not recommend mimicking the dimensions we used - they might not be right for your room.

I love everything about it. Light filled, durable surfaces, room to spread out over multiple workstations, great storage, the dark band of shelving to unify the space. Fabulous.

Thanks for the comments above, I have been searching for an island just like this on castors, so I will look to go the same route.

juliaexton- I think you may be happy with going to Costco or Home Depot. They have HUSKY work bench style cabinets with bamboo surfaces and they are on casters. Perhaps you could use one to fit your needs.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

There are two workstations in the craft area, marked by counter space that wraps around two walls. Wall space is used for art display, storage and an accessible wrapping paper station. Casters on the island allow it to be moved right next to the countertops or placed in the center of the craft room. The island's stainless steel top makes cleaning up after finger painting and cutting a breeze. Wall paint: Cloud White, Benjamin Moore; island legs and base paint: Fresh Olive, Benjamin Moore
Wraparound counter space and a large island table on casters make this basement workstation a gift wrapping maven's dream. Casters on the island allow it to be moved right next to the countertops or placed in the center of the crafts room — whatever the needs may be for the holidays.
4. Open the shades. Beyond interior lights, take advantage of any available natural light: It can be great for creating artwork and soothing for doing homework. “Consider creating focal points around windows to keep the room bright as well as visually open up the space overall,” says Denson.
Work through your home, room by room. Following your checklist, work your way slowly through the entire house — you may want to divvy up the task over several weekends. Record a brief description of each item, how many you have, how much it cost and the year you purchased it. Don't leave out any nooks or crannies. Craft rooms, sheds, attics, workshops, porches and garages should all be carefully examined and documented.
