A Basement Retreat

A basement retreat is perfect for relaxing, playing games or entertaining friends.

  • Before: This basement retreat features a gaming area plus a reading/TV section. The games are staying, but the homeowners are ready to update the couch and rocker plus add color to the walls.
  • After: Soothing walls of gold and blue set the tone for fun, games and relaxation. New furniture and a fresh coat of paint on the existing coffee table make this a retreat the entire family will enjoy more.
  • Before: While the games are fun, the lighting, lack of color and missing personal items leave this side of the basement boring and cold.
  • After: Rearranging the games and adding a pub table gives players a place to rest or wait their turn. Rope lighting along the ceiling and floor creates an arena effect.
