Last night was the basement episode of My Rona Home. We had the task of finishing 2 rooms and a bathroom. This was a hard task as it compiled all tasks prior and combined them into one. We had quite a few trials and tribulations with this task: our sink that was delivered did not fit so we had to wait for another, there were some problems with the feature stripe in the play room and we didn't receive all the furniture. Oh the drama!!!
Since we did have a TV on the main floor, we designated the basement as the family friendly zone. A great place to curl up and watch movies and just relax. A sectional was introduced in leather to aid in that comfort factor as well as for durability. The rug adds warmth and texture and the TV unit has ample storage to hide toys and such.
A fun place for the kids to play and be inspired and creative. The bold red was used to make the space fun and kid friendly and contrasted by the white furniture and accents. We chose to place vinyl decals with magical elves around the space as well as 2 bold light fixtures hang from the ceiling to add some whimsey. A TV was also introduced for the times where the parents may want to watch something else in the other room.
The basement bathroom was kept light and nuetral. Because it is in the basement, we chose to do a lighter colour scheme with soft blues, creams and whites. The same tile was carried from the upstairs bathroom to create a sense of continuity. With the space being a little awkward, we installed a floating shelf in a niche to add extra storage and utilize of what could have been unusable space.
