Basement Renovation Entertaining Space in Madison, WI

These young and outgoing clients wanted a space for entertaining friends and coworkers in their Madison, WI home. The entertaining space was the focus of this basement renovation.

It was always the couple’s dream to have a built-in seating booth in their basement. The basement is where they did a large amount of their entertaining – watching movies, playing board games, and relaxing with good company. Overall, they wanted a more functional space, making it easier to converse with guests.

On either side of the booth seat, there are cabinets for all of the couple’s games and drink coasters. The custom cherry table finishes the space off. The table pedestal was designed to allow for easy movement into the built-in seating area without hitting feet.

Entertaining Space After

We added a wet bar to the basement, complete with a bar sink and mini fridge. It’s a great space for the couple to mix drinks for company. The custom glass shelves beautifully display their collection of souvenir mugs and steins. In addition, the mirrors in the center of the bar back create a focal point.

Another space this couple used for entertaining was the kitchen. We had designed it years ago, but it was in need of a wine bar. We filled a blank wall with cherry cabinetry to match the rest of the kitchen. The wine bar is complete with glass doors and wine racks.

From the basement to the kitchen, this couple finally has all of the entertaining space they need!
