Project Spotlight: Basement in Clifton
These homeowners wanted a functional space for spending time with their children, entertaining friends, and sharing with house guests.
By creating separate speciality areas using creative design, they gained a gaming area, a lounge area with a web bar for entertaining, a wine cellar, a bedroom + bathroom enhancement for guests, a new powder room, and a gym!
Here’s a snapshot of their remodel:
Adding a bar for entertainment purposes, this also helped separate the gaming room from the lounge. Flagstone is used throughout the basement as an accent – here it is used as the bar finish.
An intimate gathering area was created for hosting guests, complete with a double-sided stone fireplace for warmth and ambiance.
We incorporated the clients love of mahogany throughout the space, and updated the now game room by adding mahogany columns and a coffered ceiling.
The wine cellar includes custom tile work and lighting wired for an IOS app which permits color lighting changes and a phone accessible door lock.
A powder room was added (left) for easy access to the rear pool, and the guest bathroom (right) was updated with marble circles and complimentary tile.
A small gym oasis with a sauna replaced one of the utility rooms, giving the matriarch a private place to retreat for yoga and relaxation.

Very few cooks enjoy being confined in a tight space to prepare a meal when company…
Most would agree that the kitchen is the hub (heart) of the home. It’s where the family gathers for meals, queues up for carpools and prepares holiday feasts. It is the energetic center of the house – the fulcrum of all things family. Even in today’s busy world, where parents and children are rushing…
