2018 Remodeling Excellence Award

“First up, creating multiple spaces, while maintaining the open feel of the existing basement was important,” said Normandy Designer working on the project, Ashley Noethe. “A custom entertainment center along the existing TV wall created the main lounging area.  There is plenty of floor space for furniture, as well as storage for board games and gaming consoles. Plush carpeting with thick padding keeps the space cozy all year round.”

As a way to incorporate more seating while still enjoying a view of the TV, a bar-height wall separates the dry bar from the lounge area. On the bar side there is an overhang with a durable marble-look quartz countertop, making it a great place to enjoy a beverage or a snack. Spills happen, so the bar flooring is water proof luxury vinyl planks with a textured wood look.

The judges of the NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) Greater Chicagoland happened to agree that this basement is a winner, bestowing a Remodeling Excellence Award on this basement remodel.
