    Keep the chairs if they are comfy becasue if you replace them with smaller ones, your loved ones will miss those chairs. I have a chair I dislike but my husband loves it so I KEEP IT.....COMFORT is what a basement is for. Tone down what? It is a lot

      @Maureen Macdonald Thank you so much. It's under construction right now. We had to take out the fire place and carpet, now trying to figure out what to paint the walls that will go nicely with the mural?
