Space planning for an unfinished basement, design of wetbar, game room, activity room and home theatre.
* Cost Comments:
The basement is 1600SF. I have drawn a schematic plan based on the clients requirements. This is just a proposed plan. I will be doing various configuration sbased on the owners taste and dislikes.
*My motivation to do this project:
A friend of mine introduced me to a couple who were looking at refinishing their basement. I had recently completed schematics for my brother's basement and was excited to start another project. The project is in VA so i will be dealing with only the design part of the project.
Interview and ask around for capable contractors. Make sure you specify your time line for the project.
This is a home I did in Alpharetta recently. I had to use some of the existing furniture and accent pieces. I used the existing Buffet, took the hutch off and converted the buffet into a
modern piece by sanding it down and staining with a darker stain to match the Mango wood table. I added distressed knobs and it looked like a whole new piece furniture. A new light fixture and some nice upholstered chairs gives this room a fresh look. What do you think?
This makeover is very close to my heart. I did it in 4 days and I worked everything out in
less than 1 $1000. To begin, I sketched the concept and design on a piece of paper. I had so many ideas in my mind but going to Lowes armed with the my concept sheet I shopped at l my initial supplies based on my rough sketch. I spent a couple of hours and picked colors that would coordinate the existing wall color.
wanted the room to have a calm and soothing effect with a bit of eclecticism and still have a boutique hotel feel. I had the dresser that I had picked on craiglist and for a long time I couldn't figure what to do with it. After the colors for the room was finalized, I decided to paint it a dark deep blue grey and distress it. I kept the dresser drawers as is to create that contrast I needed.
The 1×4 frame that I used to frame the headboard was painted the same color and distressed to tie up the elements in the room. To see how I constructed and built the headboad, click - http://www.hometalk.com/ecf1c51915/project/9...
I've been working on concept development, space planning and design for a soon to be opening Lounge Space in Atlanta called Studio 7. Will show you more picture soon but wanted to post
some 'Work in Progress' pictures
The space will have subtle Jamaican influence. I had to work with the existing space making minimal changes. But the space has sure come a long way from what it was in January of 2012. Each piece of furniture was picked and designed carefully. The lights that you see in the bar area was custom made with used Coffee filters again a subtle Jamaican influence as the country is know for its coffee.
The place is also open for artists to show their art. Studio 7 will have great music, carefully crafted Jamaican food and an awesome place to hang out to Reggae music. etc.
