A Contemporary Finished Basement with Media Room, Workout Room, and Laundry Room
This eclectic and contemporary basement remodel turned a completely underutilized space into a fully functional and interesting media room, workout room, and laundry room. It also includes a workshop and mechanical room that are not shown.
The clients wanted a space that was dramatically different from the upper three floors of their 1929-built Tudor/Jacobean Revival home. The interior design theme contrasts dramatically from the traditional, formal, and largely original living spaces in the primary areas of the house.
Initially conceived to be a space used solely by the recently married couple, it also needed to be designed for easy conversion into a safe playroom for children.
At A Glance
Montgomery Road Shaker Heights, Ohio
Low ceilings further cramped by immovable steam heat pipes hung below the joists which are now hidden by the unusual soffit placements; damp corner of media room which is why the clay foundation block was left exposed; relocating the laundry area, including the original 2-basin washtub.
The paint colors are surprisingly perfect, especially the couch and wall thing against the red brick.
“Lookin’ good! I just went down to the basement and I was REALLY excited with how things are shaping up! The colors look great and all three of the rooms have a nice feel. Thanks for all your hard work.”
