Basement Family Room Remodel

FAMILY BASEMENT REMODEL: This home, built in 2003, is located in the Foster Estates neighborhood on the east side of Carmel.  Although the home is still fairly new, the basement lacked overall functionality for the homeowners and their children.

Location:  Carmel, IN

  • Reason to Remodel: The original  layout of the basement did not have clearly defined areas to entertain and because of this, the basement was underutilized. The space appeared much smaller and confined than it actually was. Overall, the space was dated and needed an update.

 

  • Design Approach: The homeowner’s goal was to give the basement an update that allowed for them and their children to entertain guests comfortably and better utilize the space that they had available.

  • Removing the built-in entertainment system gave the homeowner the space to add a home theatre with creative storage solutions for electronics.

  • Expanding the doorway to the neighboring game room and add sliding barn doors created a more open concept while making both rooms appear larger.

  • Defining a space with a couch, fireplace, and TV created a cozy space for the homeowner to watch TV and relax, even when the theater was being used.
