What Houzz contributors are saying:
Covering walls with maple-veneered plywood can both warm and lighten basement rooms. Many different grades of plywood are available, so be sure to specify Grade A for the outward-facing side, which means the maple veneer applied to the fabricated core is free of visible defects.
To light the space, Conroy opened the stairwell to the rest of the house and placed skylights overhead. Recessed can lights fill in, and the aquarium also has the feel of natural daylight.
