Complete basement remodel and master suite renovation

Basements are often dark and cramped, relegated primarily to storage space. This client’s basement was no exception. Seeking to put this lower level to better use, the client enlisted Touchstone Remodelers to carry out a complete basement remodel and create a vibrant, well-lit subterranean entertainment center for family and friends, especially for the owners’ teenage children.

The work included custom oak railing on the descending staircase, extensive LED lighting throughout, a full wet bar with custom shelving, fresh carpeting and paint, dappled hardwood floors for the hall and game room spaces, and a complete renovation of the bathroom. This basement remodel even realized the owner’s dream of a dedicated space to display his vintage beer can collection! An egress window was added to the existing basement bedroom, allowing for the introduction of additional light and enabling the space to legally qualify as a bedroom.

The master suite renovation upstairs focused on streamlining and upgrading the layout to better suit the owners’ lifestyle. Eliminating the bathtub and relocating the toilet allowed for substantial expansion of the master shower space—and, oh, what a shower space it is! The teal glass tiles in the shower accent wall form a mesmerizing pattern reminiscent of bamboo, and the brown river-stones of the shower floor almost massage the bather’s feet. The shower walls and bathroom floor feature delicately striated limestone, and the wall space behind the double floating vanity cabinet is a subtle mosaic of split-face, dry-stacked limestone as well. Add built-in custom cabinetry, a steam shower, and heated floors, and this master suite renovation becomes one to remember.
