10 design solutions for your basement and attic
Problem: I want to finish the basement, but don’t want the rustic lounge room treatment that most basements have
You can make your basement area just as grand as your high-style spaces above ground, high ceilings or not. Hang oversized artwork, arrange sleek modern furniture and light it up with ornate fixtures.
Problem: I have small windows in the basement and have no idea how to cover them
You can still make a lounge in the basement appear spacious despite low ceilings and grade level windows. Hang full-length drapes to make it appear as though there’s a large bay window hidden behind.
Problem: There’s no natural light in our basement and it just feels dark and dull
The quickest and easiest fix for a dark basement is a fresh coat of paint. Whilst walls painted in a pale grey will lighten the space, a ceiling brushed in a fresh coat of vibrant coral will give it that extra boost.
