Turning your basement into a one-of-a-kind space designed and built for your family’s unique lifestyle can have a big impact on your home’s value and on your everyday quality of life.
Whether your existing basement is unfinished or simply outdated in terms of space, style, or layout, a basement remodel can go a long way toward turning a previously unused level of your home into a stylish and welcoming getaway.
This was certainly the case for Ben and Danielle Walker, who worked with Country Creek Builders to transform the basement of their Eagan, MN, home into a cozy, modernized living space for both adults and children.
Here is a closer look at the custom elements Country Creek Builders designed and implemented into Ben and Danielle’s new, breathtaking basement – and how we can do the same for you.
The Family Room: Home theater meets play area
Ben and Danielle knew they wanted a basement that would allow them to escape and entertain, but they also knew it had to accommodate their young children, as well.
The solution was a custom home theater area with space for an 80” TV, ambient LED lighting, a linear fireplace, and more – all just a few steps away from an under-stair playroom that featured an arched doorway and servicing window.
We also opened up the walls at the bottom of the stairs and added railings to offer a more airy and inviting feel.
Family Room Features:
- Custom cabinets with space for 80” TV
- Linear electric fireplace surrounded with Sierra Vista Quartzite Architectural Wall Tile
- Poplar wood TV cabinets
- Shaker style doors and drawers
- 3” cove molding
- Soffits with crown molding and LED tape lights
- Sherwin Williams Desert Sand Stain
The Wet Bar: An adult-friendly nook
To meet their specific desires for entertaining friends, Ben and Danielle also wanted a basement bar area included in the project, opposite the stairs from the home theater.
The bar included a TV of its own in the upper cabinets, along with adjacent wine storage and an under-cabinet fridge. Ample room to move and the addition of stools, a drink ledge, and a putting green primed the space for the couple’s next get-together.
Wet Bar Features:
- TV in upper cabinets with adjacent wine storage
- Under-cabinet fridge
- Chevron White splash tile
- Grey Limed Oak tile flooring
- Arctic Blast quartz bar countertops
- Arctic Blast wall (making this a perfect area for bar stools and a drink ledge)!
The Bathroom: A natural, optimized layout
The existing basement bathroom had a less-than-ideal layout, which made usability and comfort an issue.
As a solution, we began the basement bathroom remodel by jackhammering existing concrete to gain access to relocate the toilet, shower, and vanity drains, creating more space and a more naturally flowing feel. The completion of the shower, vanity, and flooring made the space clean and comfortable for the couple, their kids, and their guests.
- Bathroom floor tile: 10” Black Hex Porcelain
- Shower floor tile: 2” Black Hex Porcelain
- Shower walls: 4″ x 8″ Imperial Bianco Gloss Ceramic Subway Wall Tile
