In Design Tips & Tricks by Adam Jensen / Updated: February 24, 2021
One of the best parts of designing basements is that they can be a blank canvas to work with. Our designers are always hard at work developing spaces in Michigan that have unique design features to bring life to the basement. Adding these design features to the basement make the space feel more like the upper levels of the home. This helps the basement feel more like a lower level than a basement. Below are just a few of the design features that we love adding to our basements.
Just a few well placed archways can give the entire basement a custom feel. You can use archways in different ways! The one below is a great way to make a hallway feel more apart of the basement than a corner with multiple doors.
2. Accent Walls
Accent walls work to break up the traditional look of having 4 of the same colored walls. Wood look paneling brings a fun and creative look to an otherwise conventional space.
3. Bar Paneling
Basement bars are a great space to add in a few custom design elements. The backing of the bar such as the one below has a custom paneled design to it. Therefore, the basement has a more finished and custom appearance. This is a great idea for bars with islands and seating.
4. Ceiling Detail
Creating ceiling detail can define a space while utilizing the ceiling height available. Working around the HVAC and pipes in the ceiling a design feature is created using an often overlooked piece of the basement. Not only can ceilings be used to define individual spaces, they can work well as a design feature.
