Basement Finish Broadview Heights


This particular Cleveland basement finishing project eloquently features a custom designed bar, playroom, entertainment area, recreational area, and offers plenty of room for additional storage. Part man cave, part entertainment, and part children-friendly, this basement meets each of the homeowner’s needs with sleekness and style.


Essentially, the homeowners were tired of under-utilizing such a large area of their home and wanted to maximize the space available in order to bring out it’s full potential. The key requirements of the customer’s were a custom built bar with cabinetry and granite counter-tops, a playroom for their little girl, adequate storage space, and an entertainment area with custom installed surround sound.

As you can see, the project (as is most always the case) takes on a life of its own as the final details get fleshed out. But overall, the final product resembles the original concept almost identically (other than the choice of paint colors and flooring). This particular basement remodel took approximately 6 weeks to complete. approximately 6 weeks.  The state of the art entertainment area was inspired by Home Theater Concepts, while most of the other materials used were purchased either from our network of suppliers or from Lowe’s or Home Depot.
