Create the Ultimate Basement Oasis with a Bar, Gym, and Office

Discover the stunning transformation of a Chicago basement - from drab to mid-century fab!

After remodeling their first floor, this Deer Park, IL, family wanted to create a modern and functional basement that was as stylish as the rest of the home. The homeowners are fans of mid-century decor, which works well when you want a lot of style in a small space.

This finished basement needed to combine everyday activities with room for entertaining guests. The open-concept basement design allows the space to do just that. Every detail of this design helps to give the illusion of more room and create an inviting atmosphere that is sure to inspire guests.  

Basement Architectural Details 

The basement design and build services offered by Patrick A. Finn make technical renovations possible because our in-house architectural design team works directly with our contractor and carpentry experts. This collaboration is key to getting the most well-constructed and stylish basement on the block. 

  • Minimal white squared beams are worked into the design, and the space is maximized around them
  • Basement ceiling is recessed- tray ceilings in the basement add height without jeopardizing the structural integrity of the first floor if done by a professional
  • Custom green board and batten wall design is the highlight of the basement theater

Design notes: 

  • LVP flooring by COREtec in Hickory with rich tone variations adds warmth and grounds the room. The luxury vinyl plank flooring resists wear and tear for years, making it the perfect choice for a home gym in the basement
