October 26, 2012 By: admin Category: Basement

Basement is sometime an underused space in your house. So, what about adding function and give little touch to it. Here, Candice Olson will give her ideas transforming ordinary basement into chic basement with stunning color palettes, cozy furnishings and smart layouts. Her ideas include classic, traditional, Artistic, functional, exotic, and cozy basements.

Classic Meets Rustic Basement

By blending masculine textures with feminine touches, Candice creates a basement fit for the whole family. A dog-friendly sectional in bark brown is paired with two leather green ottomans and a coffee table made of logs and glass. A gas fireplace flanked from floor to ceiling with sandstone tiles adds a rustic touch to the space.

Traditional Family Basement

Divided into two zones, this basement features a family lounge and a crafts and sewing area. Cream cabinetry with an antique wash provides tons of storage, while a huge sectional sofa is the perfect neutral backdrop for a host of accents pillows that play up the contrasts of texture and color. A photo gallery of favorite botanical prints creates a stunning focal point for the lounge area.

Spiced-Up Basement

To create a space with the energy and warmth of a Mexican cantina, Candice starts by grounding the basement with durable tile that has the look of wide-plank hardwood. Color plays a big part in this space with a chili-pepper red glass backsplash, a red and guacamole green chair and a fiery red media cabinet. To create the illusion of a large window, she hangs wall-sized translucent blinds over the tiny basement window.

Playful, Artistic Basement Retreat

Bright and colorful, this basement features a cozy family lounge and a fun, functional art studio. Muted green carpet compliments the sky blue walls, and slipcovered furniture is the perfect solution for this art-loving family. To create the illusion of natural illumination, Candice installs floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Whimsical vinyl transfer words add color and playfulness to the room.

Multi-Functional Basement

A neutral palette is the setting for this basement that features a lounge, a media area and a workout zone. A dramatic, vertical gas fireplace boasts rustic limestone cladding and is flanked by four-foot sconces. For added pizzazz, the workout area is divided off from the rest of the basement by French doors and two cool, glassed-in waterfalls.

Exotic Indian Lounge

To set the scene for this Indian-inspired basement, Candice covers the walls in a black-and-gold paisley wallpaper and a metallic-backed sisal wallpaper. Black-and-white carpet tiles create a chic checkerboard across the room, while luxe fabrics on the furniture and window treatments add a glam factor.

Comfy, Neutral Basement

Neutral walls are paired with dark vinyl tiles that give the look of real wood. The painted brick fireplace is the focal point of the space and features a wood mantel with a built-in nook for the TV. Cozy seating and a space set aside for the family’s musical instruments complete this basement makeover.

Cool Teen Hangout

For this basement makeover, Candice transformed an empty basement into a hip teen bedroom that also doubles as a family hangout. In the bedroom, she uses masculine shades of brown, blue and black to create a comfy and relaxing atmosphere. Over in the family room, a big media area features a desk for homework, a beverage fridge, a big screen TV and cozy, oversized furniture. For an added bit of fun, she includes a three-in-one games system, featuring foosball, hockey and pool.

Relaxing Basement Hangout

Rust grasscloth and buttery yellow walls set the scene for a warm, inviting basement. A deep L-shaped sectional in sage linen features tons of textured pillows in rust, gold and cream. To brighten the windowless space, Candice installs recessed lights and track lighting behind a bulkhead.

Cozy Gathering Place
