A Family Getaway Space




This family wanted to finish their basement and turn it into a comfortable, multi-functional, living space. Among their requests included a fireplace, a gym, a three piece washroom, a kitchenette, a place where their kids could shoot hockey pucks and plenty of storage.


When you come down the stairs the first thing you see is the gorgeous fireplace that is clad in a concrete looking tile. Beside the lounge area is a lovely table and chairs that the family can play board games at. Across from the table is wall-to-wall built-in cabinetry that provides the family with beautiful, functional storage.

the full sized fridge makes the kitchenette extra functional and creates a space that kids and adults can hibernate in as long as they wish.

We selected beautiful wool wall to wall carpet in the main living space and then transitioned to a luxury vinyl that looks like hardwood. Vinyl was chosen because it is extremely durable and appropriate for the kitchenette and bathroom, but is soft and allowed us to continue it into the gym. In the bathroom, we used the same cabinetry as elsewhere and designed a shallow linen closet so towels and toiletries can be kept in the basement, and close to the gym.
