The couch really adds to the colorful touch to the room, especially when it's set against the white walls. Unfortunately, the Owner's had the couch in their possession prior to the renovation and we don't have any of the details for this item. Good luck in your search and thanks for your interest.

thickness of floor with radiant heat? - Hi there we have a low ceiling basement 6'10'' ish we would like to keep the ceiling exposed to gain more space but we want radiant heat for the flooring. There is already a cement floor in place, can you tell me what is the thickness that will be added if we insulate (moisture), put on electric heating mat and ceramic tiles? thanks

Electric heat mats are a great way to add heating to a space without taking up a lot of room with bulky heaters. To answer your question, you should expect to loose anywhere between 1/2" to 1 1/4" depending on the material used. Please remember that you need 7'-0" ceiling heights in most jurisdictions for habitable space. Thanks for your inquiry.

The open joists really accentuate the head height in a low space. We were able to achieve this open look because we are a single family dwelling. Thanks for your inquiry.

How tall is the ceiling? Thank you.

Wentworth, Inc.
The ceiling is 7'-8" to the underside of the subfloor above and just over 7'-0 to the underside of the joists. By keeping the joists open you can achieve a more airy feel to the space even when you are limited by the existing conditions. Thanks for your inquiry.

We had the ceiling sprayed by our painters. One of the keys to making this work is cleaning and sanding the years of built-up grime from the sub-floor and joists. This is a relatively labor intensive process. Thanks for your inquiry.

One of the simplest way to warm your existing concrete floors is to cover them with ceramic tile over an electric heat mat. You will probably want to level the floor anyhow since most garage floors slope. Hope that helps.

The ceilings were sprayed by a professional painter. The noise transmission will be greater between the floors when you removed the plaster from the ceiling. Thanks for inquiring.

Yearley Interiors
upholstered fabric covered panels can be hung just slightly below the beams for a really cool hip look. I see it done all the time in commercial building where all the ducts and wiring is exposed above. Especially in restaurants. It helps hide the framework which can be unsightly as well as add a sound barrier and help with insulation.

Do you have carpeting with thick padding on the floor above to absorb sound?

Hi teefis and savannahh22,

Like Wentworth, the artist of this work is unknown to me, but I can create an original work for you with similar colors. Please visit http://www.spkcreative.com/index.php#.T-i1fGh970c to see/purchase my affordable, vividly cheerful abstracts, which has been shown in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. You can find sizing and pricing options for commissioned works in the I Am A Butterfly Gallery http://www.spkcreative.com/thumbnail_list.php?mgd_id=168503#.T-i1lmh970c. I ship worldwide via UPS (except for PO boxes and military addresses).

Best,
Shari

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to A Gloomy Basement Lightens Up
"There are two young children in the house, so the basement is used as a playroom for the kids, a TV and media room for the adults and a lounge that feels more modern and cozy," says Wentworth.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Awe-Inspiring Basement Renovations
1. Colonial Upstairs, Scandinavian DownstairsThis basement renovation gave a family a multipurpose space where they could all spend time together playing, watching TV and using a home office. It also gave them a chance to break away from the colonial decor used throughout the rest of the house and enjoy another style they admired: Scandinavian modern.
Allison Lind Interiors added this to How to Get Your Basement Lighting Right
In a basement it’s common to lower the ceiling and install recessed can lights. For a more modern touch, and to make the space feel airier, consider peeling back the ceiling in places and running track lights along the exposed joists.
