Project Overview:

This New Berlin basement remodel project transformed an underutilized space into a dynamic entertainment area, complete with a wet bar, floating shelves, an open stairwell, and an island with a raised countertop designed for social gatherings. In an innovative twist, instead of opting for a drywall ceiling, the homeowners requested the ceiling joists and ductwork be spray-painted black—a decision that initially raised concerns due to the ceilings being less than 8 feet high.

However, the result was strikingly impressive, adding an industrial chic flair that greatly enhanced the basement’s ambiance. Additionally, this project followed a significant remodel of their master bathroom two years prior, where we completely overhauled the space down to the studs, introducing a spacious 6’ x 5’ walk-in tile shower complete with a rain head and body sprays, notably designed without a door for an open and luxurious feel.
