Due to the water damaged, a large portion of the basement had already been taken apart and dried up, allowing our team to finalize the cleaning and get started on the craftsmanship portion a lot sooner. Essentially, our team was brought in to help put the space back together, but with new and improved products. For example, to protect against future water damage, we suggested LVT flooring which is a water-resistant surface. We also installed all the cabinets on metal feet to prevent the main cabinets from getting wet if flooding were to occur again.
Otherwise, we simply revamped the bar area to be a kitchenette, which opened up more space. We selected a stunning faux-wood looking tile to cover the entertainment wall, as well as floating shelves which helped give the space feel more open. In the bathroom, we replace the vanity. We also suggested they select a neutral color wall paint to replace the previously orange walls.
Before: The previously flooring had been ripped out after being destroyed by water damage. The walls were orange. A clunky brown cabinet area made the room feel heavy along the back wall.
After: New, water resistant LVT filled the space. The lighter grain helps brighten up the entire area. The back wall and entertainment wall are covered in a unique wood-look tile. Floating shelved replaced the heavy brown shelves that previously existed. The walls are painted a soft, neutral color.
Before: The damaged floor was removed. The white cabinet was disassembled. The walls were a beige-like yellow.
After: The same LVT from the sitting area is installed in the bedroom to help keep the space cohesive. The walls are also painted the same neutral color. Our team reassembled the white storage cabinet.
Before: A full service bar was installed, including a kitchen sink area and a sitting bar that was rarely used and took up unnecessary space. White wood panels acted as a backsplash for the bar. A square tile filled the floor area of the bar to signify a different space from the seating area. The effect made the space feel choppy.
After: The homeowners opted to replace the full bar with a wet bar. This freed up space in the overall floor plan, while also allowing them to retain the kitchen appliances they used frequently before. This also helped create more storage by installing a row of upper cabinets. The flooring is removed and replaced with the same LVT installed throughout the rest of the space.
