Never have to buy a movie ticket again!
This East Cobb family, located near Pope High School, decided to renovate their basement in style.
The family was a return client of ours. Earlier this year, we had expanded their backyard by adding new hardscape along with the construction of a new fabulous outdoor kitchen. The new screened porch and outdoor play area were a summer hit. Now that winter was approaching, the family wanted a place of respite indoors. Naturally, the basement seemed like a good start.
Originally, the basement was partially finished; however, a water leak had caused considerable damage. As part of the restoration process, they decided to go all in and transform it into a more useful area for their family. The old basement was outdated. It had a kitchen and bathroom, but old carpet and zero storage. A refurbishment was indeed in order.
Sometimes clients are reluctant to finish out their basement due to lighting or moisture concerns. One way Atlanta Curb Appeal tackles this is by increasing the brightness using can lights with dimmers if natural light is limited. Proper sealing of the basement alleviates the other burden. The client used a third party company that exclusively deals with these issues. They clean up and prevent future damage from moisture-rich soil and concrete walls. This company also removed the water-damaged drywall and added their secondary system in place before we came in and rebuilt it back up.
The big reveal, though, is the new entertainment room. It is magnificent; it’s like seeing the bridge on the Starship Enterprise after the beautiful barn doors roll back.
Special considerations, of course, had to be made. A sound company installed specific internal panels for sound proofing. Plus, they pre-wired the walls before we closed them for the custom entertainment system.
Finally, we wrapped up by renovating the wet bar area. White subway tiles offset the new black granite countertops. A larger, stainless steel refrigerator was added and beautiful hardwood tile floor.
The results are astounding! The clients’ response to the finished project is that they are absolutely in LOVE with it! They love the new wall colors and the way the carpeting blended so well with all the rooms. It’s a new consistent and modern atmosphere downstairs.
They appreciated it so much, they invited Atlanta Curb Appeal to their first movie showing!
