Our New Basement!

Our basement is finally finished! In a little under 3 months, we have been totally transformed. We had a completely unfinished basement (except for a small bathroom) and now we have tons of great new space. We have almost doubled our square footage. I have tried to take some before and after pictures from similar locations. First, our floorplan.Next, the family room and staircase. Notice how icky the stairs were before. What a change!
Bedroom and office:
It is kind of hard to get a good picture, but the walls are the same color as the living room. See floor plan for room layout.

We are so excited to be done and I can't wait to get decorating. Maybe we need some furniture first! We'll show more when we have gotten some things in our rooms.

WOW! What a transformation! Love. The colors are perfection, really. Perfect for a basement and gone are the peachy hues! Can't wait to sleep in it! Let's decorate/craft in April!

I agree with Melissa- it is quite a transformation! The colors and lighting are great for the basement, and the white trim makes it look so clean and modern!

It is beautiful. You will love having a separate family roo to relax in , leaving the living room more formal. My fav is nolan sitting by the awesome new staircase.

Wow, that looks great! You are going to love your space once you get it all decorated and furniture down there. Nolan will love to just play in all that space. I'm glad you like the work that was done, I will pass it on!

Love it! Having a finished basement is THE BEST. Always makes you wonder what on earth you ever did without it! :)

Love it! I'm so jealous - I can't wait for the day that we have a basement to hide all the toys. :)

Nice basement, Nolan can safely roam now. I think I would have preferred sleeping there now than in the past.
