When the time came for use to remodel our basement, we had a clear budget in mind and wanted to maximize as much space as possible. Basement remodeling projects can take on a life of their own if you don’t pre plan!
We installed Armstrong Ceilings WOODHAVEN Planks in a white textured woven finish. The white woven planks are not only gorgeous but so easy to install and helped create the open concept clean look we were going after.
Be sure to check out the first post before Christmas where I share how Jim and I decided to create this fun space! The ceiling planks come in a variety of colors and add amazing architectural detail to the space.
Don’t miss our ceiling plank install post for more information and pictures. To define the TV space, we added the Armstrong Ceilings WOODHAVEN Planks and clips to create an accent wall.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much character this easy DIY project adds to the finished basement.
You guys, these barn sliding doors from Horner Millwork are insanely amazing! We picked the Masonite Livingston Smooth Collection which are elegant and the black sliding door barn hardware that comes with the doors coordinated perfectly lending to a modern look with a hint of rustic style. I will share another post showing the new storage areas behind all the Livingston Interior doors.
Creating hidden storage spaces that are unfinished in your basement will allow you to save money and help keep things organized at the same time. When Covid-19 hit, Jim had an idea to turn this small area at the bottom of the basement stairs into a closet.
My dad took over the pantry and filled with canned spam, beans and what he called “war-pantry food” for a stay at home bunker.
It shows the Masonite Livingston Doors, the Armstrong Ceiling Planks and the gorgeous Harvest Oak Vinyl Rigid Core Flooring by Select Surfaces. The vinyl plank flooring was under $2800 (so affordable and don’t forget we had a large space to cover), the Armstrong ceiling planks were under $4500 (this includes all the clips and track system for ceiling installation), Armstrong plank accent wall $850, the Masonite doors with sliding tracks and pantry doors were roughly $4800 (that is for 8 doors! It’s easy to keep clean, waterproof, installs easily on top of the basement concrete and looks amazing.
Another part of the basement layout that we considered was creating a small gym space on the other end of the basement and my cute white desk and pink chair from my office served as a desk space for homework. If you are looking to save money on your basement remodel, I highly suggest using the inexpensive balusters, staircase knuckles and shoes like we did. Lullaby by Sherwin Williams is a classic neutral blue/gray color and it looks absolutely gorgeous in our basement.
We wanted a modern coastal vibe with a hint of rustic and all of these products couldn’t have worked any better with each other.
If you are in the central Massachusetts area and need any remodeling / custom build home work done, Jim is your guy! I cannot thank my wonderful sponsors enough for participating in this amazing basement remodel makeover transformation.
