A Pretty but Not So Simple Basement Reno
On a recent episode of Leave it to Bryan, contractor Bryan Baeumler and designer Laura Lynn Fowler helped artist Nancy transform her bland and uninspiring basement into a swoon worthy ‘woman’ cave featuring a custom art studio and parlor.
While Nancy loved the vast space in her basement, the white walls, cold tile flooring and a dropped ceiling made the room feel sterile.
Nancy envisioned an art studio that had the same feeling of a classic billiard room filled with warmth and wood paneling on the walls.
Leaving it up to Bryan, he did just that. By adding interior finishings, laminate wood flooring, raising the ceiling and adding lavish furnishings, Bryan and Laura were able to create the art studio Nancy had always envisioned.
To achieve the feeling of an old billiard room, Bryan opted to add rich architectural detailing to the walls by incorporating wall paneling throughout the room.
For the baseboards, casing and crown moulding, Bryan used solid Red Oak trim from Metrie’s Pretty Simple Collection.
The interior doors used in the space were also from the Pretty Simple Collection. Double clear glass doors painted in a muted yellow tone were used to divide the studio space from the future gallery, and double solid panel doors hide a closet.
Bryan and Laura transformed Nancy’s basement into a lavish custom art studio that is truly inspiring. To learn more about this space and watch the hilarity unfold, click here.
