This family wanted to create a basement space that would play off the exterior pool and patio area created a couple years ago. The already-finished basement was a disjointed group of rooms that did not function well. So, Distinctive Remodeling Solutions threw everything they knew about the current basement up in the air and created something totally different.
Major framing changes were required (including steel and new concrete footings) to create such an open space, but it made the difference in how the space flowed overall. The floor plan was reworked to create a large entertainment area anchored in natural stone tile.
The custom bar in alder with a rich stain and granite counter in absolute black evokes the feel of a British men’s club and houses one of the room’s two televisions. Mosaico Travertino tile in the bar’s wine alcove and backsplash echoes the flooring and offers counterpoint to the deep hue of the cabinetry.
The newel and handrail of the stair are of mahogany and stained to match the bar, with balusters in the same oil rubbed bronze as the plumbing fixtures and hardware on the doors. A carpet runner created a transition from upstairs with a tone-on-tone pattern that picks up the colors of the tile. Each area of this main space was subtly defined by the ceiling treatment, with separate treys over the bar and seating area, and beams over the ping pong table.
The new exercise room features cork flooring for maximum comfort during tough workouts. Afterward, sore muscles can be relaxed in the sauna followed by a scrub in the shower whose walls are of Newcastle Travertine with accent rows in the same Ravena as the sauna floor.
