We just have about come to completion on our Ashley Basement Remodel in Long Grove, IL. A great study in how to make a big impact without breaking the bank. Making certain choices where you really want the architecture to "pop" and making smart careful decisions in other areas where costs can be conserved. This image shows the culmination of this approach. Tongue and groove cedar siding was used to clad the stair wall while ikea cabinetry was altered and customized to create a bar. To the left, a large storage area was created using the ikea wardrobe series. It's a great way to get deep storage cabinetry that is totally customizable. The hanging ceiling fixture, also from ikea, makes a great statement and is fun and cheerful in the designated kids play space. Even the selection of white cabinetry in the kids area vs. the grey cabinetry in the tv area and bar create this distinction of spaces.
