This couple living in this home have three sons, and their kids’ toys were overwhelming their relatively minimally furnished basement. Instead of being a mixed-use space for both children and adults looking to kick back and relax, it was dominated by a world of kids’ playthings.
So they did a total basement overhaul. This one took stylistic inspiration from the beach. The room also combines a playroom, entertainment space and office, giving it a multi-functional purpose it didn’t have before.
When this couple took over their basement, they had some big ideas – including a home office and rehearsal space. This is what they started with, and they managed to do what most people can’t- make their home renovation dreams come true.
