Need a little design inspiration for your own remodeling project? Take a look at how we transformed an Eagan home’s basement into a custom, contemporary oasis:

Remodel of the Basement Main Area

Above all else, the homeowners wanted to not only make their basement more livable. To do this, we installed a gorgeous bathroom with a shower and placed a family-room TV into a recessed niche. As both a recreation hub and a perfectly sized “suite” for guests, this basement can now do it all.

We also collectively decided that this room should be just as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional and comfortable, so we designed soffits to hide the heating duct work. With every inch of the basement adding to the overall function and appeal, the homeowners have a space that can be enjoyed in multiple ways. 

The Entertainment Hub

As a go-to room for entertainment, it was obvious that the basement needed a bar area. This way, the homeowners could host get-togethers, dinner parties, and celebrations, and have the ideal space for everyone to gather, mingle, and relax. 

We included a large bar with modern island seating, Knotty Alder cabinets, flat-panel doors, melamine soft-close drawer boxes, 3” cove molding on uppers, “Desert Sand” stain, a TV in the center of the upper cabinets, wine glass holders beneath the cabinet fridge, and Cosmic Blue Granite for the bar and bath vanities, fabricated and installed by Credit River Granite

The Little Details

At Country Creek Builders, we’re firm believers that every detail of a remodeling project matters, not just the large-scale additions. All of the “tweaks” that we made play a significant role in the way this basement looks and feels now — and we’re proud of each and every one.

We installed Sound Batt insulation in the ceilings, over 500 square feet of tile in the bar and game area, hallway, and bathroom floors from The Tile Shop, carpet in the family room and bedroom, and gorgeous bar splash tile (Retro Perla — subway tile 3 x 12; SKU 494440).

Our team also opened the stair walls at the bottom and added rails for an open, airy feel. We then installed black metal spindles, Poplar handrails (stained to match the bar) and an LVL load bearing beam, and painted the family room, bar, and hallway “Pussywillow” from Sherwin Williams.
