A Basement Becomes a Luxe Entertaining Area
Our client wanted a to utilize their open basement space as a room for multi-purpose entertaining. Spark Interiors turned the basement into a relaxing, self-sufficient oasis by installing a full-sized kitchen (sans cooking range) so that guests can now be entertained with food and drink without having to traipse upstairs to the main kitchen.
To achieve this, we planned the kitchen around existing plumbing and removed a wall-mounted AC unit. We separated the living space from the kitchen with a pure white quartz counter top kitchen island that includes a gorgeous counter-height bar overhang to accommodate seating for four with custom-ordered bar stools. The island is now a piece of art since the quartz counter top “waterfalls” all the way down to the floor. This added the clean, modern-art aesthetic our client wanted.
Our color scheme is achromatic because our client believes art should provide the color in a room. We chose walnut cabinets with a dark finish, white quartz for the counter tops, white leather in the custom bar stools, and gray for the sofa and finishes. This custom-made sofa faces an 80” wall-mounted television that sits over a custom, reclaimed wood, locally made floating shelf. The floating shelf is 14 feet long and features a remote-controlled LED light strip that can change colors depending on which sports team the viewers are rooting for!
The outcome of this project was successful because the client understood how to work with a designer and followed our process.
