If you believe that a basement is a boring place that can only be used for storing odds and ends, it’s time to change that thought! Why? That is because the architects at Grey-Woods have proved you wrong with this Noida project, where a 650 square feet basement has become a trendy den with smart touches. By introducing minimalistic yet stylish designs, the basement now accommodates a living area with TV as well as a bar unit to entertain friends. The colour palette is neutral to keep the atmosphere bright and relaxing. Since the basement doesn’t receive any natural light, it was essential to create an airy vibe with soothing colours. Creative lighting also plays an important role in making the basement attractive.
The slatted wooden framework makes a warm and elegant statement at the entrance of the basement. Note how it contrasts its surroundings and allows light and air to pass easily between the main floors of the home and the basement.
Cream steps and a sleek metal balustrade give this trendy staircase its appeal. There is ample lighting in this space to avoid mishaps, and the area under the stairs can accommodate shelves or cabinets if needed. A slim wooden safety railing on the other side of the staircase provides extra support.
The generous use of white makes this modern living area very bright and spacious in appearance. Elegant blue sofas with tufted backs contrast the walls beautifully, while the TV unit impresses with its many open shelves. These shelves can hold books, TV accessories as well as decor accents.
Stylish shelf lighting ensures that the living space looks attractive even when the other lights are switched off while watching a movie or a game. These shelf lights also help people to see where they are going in the dark, eliminating the risk of bumping into things and getting hurt.
White and grey is the classy colour palette of this home bar. The U-shaped counter offers ample space to store various accessories for preparing drinks and even cleaning supplies. Moreover, the countertop comes in handy while mixing drinks or plating appetisers. The overhead cabinets with stylish glass doors can showcase beautiful glasses and alcohol bottles with panache.
We love how white lights have been fitted inside the liquor cabinets to allow people to admire the collection and choose what they want, even in the dimly lit environment. These lights create a unique ambience and highlight the beauty of the cabinet doors as well.
