Basements in many of today's homes are large, functional spaces. In this particular basement in Avon, the space was also large, but the family had very specific uses in mind for each area of the basement. The heart of this basement was to be the inviting wet bar area, equipped with a medium sized refrigerator, a microwave... and the all important built in kegerator! Then, the client asked about the idea of incorporating a projection screen and theater seating. Before long, the client was scouting out seats and giving us dimensions so we could construct a couple of raised levels for a stadium seating arrangement. A little additional expert design help and we came up with a bar ledge where friends and family could turn their bar stools around and watch a movie or a game on the projection screen with others. Throw in an exercise room with french doors, a walk in closet for out of season clothes, an unfinished storage room complete with shelving for rubbermaid containers and totes and we are making great use of the available space. But, don't forget the bathroom, the game area and the cute little play area beneath the stairs that includes a small door and a little window for the kids to play in. This basement is one of our favorites for its character... and it includes just about every element a client would want!
