Basement Renovation

We had been dreaming for years about this basement renovation.  It is finally finished and we couldn't be happier with the new space!  We are thrilled with it how it turned out and I couldn't wait to share it with you all.  We started with partially finished walls and most of the space was storage.  Our goal was to create a space that flowed with the rest of the home and was warm and inviting.  My husband wanted a place to display sports memorabilia that he had collected through the years.  I wanted my own laundry space.  See that post here.  All in all, I think we achieved the aesthetic we were going for and now have a space that everyone enjoys.  Here are some pictures of our new basement.

We purchased this gray metal cabinet at Ikea.  It is absolutely perfect for displaying some of my husband's treasured sports items.

My parents and in-laws often come and stay for extending lengths of time, so it is nice to have this extra space for them to relax in and feel some privacy from the rest of the house.

A full bath was a must with overnight guests.
