Basement Renovation Pics

About two years ago we decided to reno our basement. It had low ceilings, was dark and dank. We avoided it but  the kids needed space to play and we needed an additional bathroom so we decided to go for it.

Here is what it looked like before (this picture actually makes it look better than it was. Check out that blue carpet!)

And here are a few photos of it now that it is renovated. The space is a light brighter, drier and more livable. Our kids play here a lot and we let them make messes and get a little crazy down here (then we make them clean up and calm down but that's another post for another day).

The Ork prints are a favorite and they capture two places we've lived and loved. Need to add more LA and Manhattan prints. In general, we still need to decorate the basement - we've left it for the kids to play in for the time being. Things I want to do include:
  • Buy new sectional and big comfy chair
  • Buy more Etsy art
  • Style up the office area - with a bold paint colour and a custom fitted desk 
  • Add more storage!  
Have you renovated your basement lately? Any decorating tips to share with a busy family?
