Rochester Lower Level
Our clients wanted to transform their lower level into a bright, open space, but it didn’t have any natural light. They also wanted to use whimsical decor without taking away from the sophistication of the design. This build was all about achieving the perfect balance.
We used neutral tones throughout the lower level and recessed lighting fixtures in just the right hue. To avoid a monotonous design, we used furniture and decor with contrasting colors to complement the subdued wall and brick colors, achieving a perfect balance between light and dark.
This family of five wanted to transform their lower level into a bright, open space for hosting events and spending time with their young kids. In order to create the feeling our client was looking for without any natural light, our designers utilized a neutral toned color scheme throughout and recessed lighting fixtures in just the right hue.
White walls and ceilings cover the majority of the space, complemented by the pale tones of the wood-look LVT flooring. We added a white brick backsplash to create more depth in the bar area and used natural colored floating wooden shelves, rather than hanging cabinets, to keep the feeling as open as possible. In the lounge area, the TV wall has been upgraded with floor to ceiling shiplap and built in wooden block shelves, creating a bit of a bohemian look to complement the natural tones. Darker brown furniture adds contrast from the walls and throw pillows add a pop of color.
When it came to decor for this project, they wanted to incorporate fun pieces without taking away from the design itself. Our team designed the space to highlight things like snow skis hanging on the wall, a chalkboard, and a movie-theater style popcorn machine as the finishing touches, leaving our clients with the family-friendly entertainment hub they had hoped for.
