We are that type of couple that always feel we are "missing" one more room in our house. We knew we needed to have a finished basement when we moved in three years ago. The great overhaul was well worth the efforts as the basement has turned into our most-used (and enjoyed) space in addition to our respective home offices.

Here are some pictures that documented the progress of our basement renovation.

Basement staircase in progress. The decision to open up the partial wall not only made the staircase look great, but also continued to provide the support it was built for.
Basement staircase after. Love how great the color combination turned out: red oak steps and railing stained in Pewter/Ebony, while the rest painted in antique white.
Our messy basement before. It was quickly being turned into our dump site so we had to stop it.
7 days into our basement renovation.

Basement living area after. We added a wall built-in unit based on Ikea Billy bookcase.

Basement living area after. As you can tell, I've started to accessorize the built-in unit.
One of my most favourite fixer-upper/makeover - cane chairs I scored from KJ painted in white and upholstered in Dwell Studio's Bella Porte Charcoal fabric. They are now served as library chairs in front of the built-in in the basement.
Basement before, front another angle facing the staircase and the cold room.
Basement after, craft area, and corridor leading to the cold room and the staircase.

This is the basement bathroom rough-in from our builder.


We added another guest bedroom in our basement.
