1. “Mine Shaft” Slide from Upstairs

Basement Finishing Ideas - Slide to Basement

Definitely one of the more playful basements we’ve ever finished! The mine shaft slide was designed for kiddos (or adults, who are we kidding) to take the easy way from upstairs into the basement. Just hop on the slide for quick, fun and easy travel into your new lair!


2. Custom Stone Wainscoting

Basement Finishing Ideas - Stone Wainscoting

Wainscoting is timeless, stylish and gets a rugged update with this beautiful custom stone. Stone adds a layer of class and matches any color pallet. It’s a simple way to increase the ‘wow-factor’ in any room. Bonus: the gorgeous custom vanity, with speckled stone counter-top and extra storage underneath!


3. Custom River Rock Shower Tile

Basement Finishing Ideas - River Rock Shower Tile

Is there anything more freeing than taking a skinny dip in a river? Bring the serene beauty of a mountain river into your home (minus the frigid river water), with custom river rock shower tiling. Each rock is beautifully unique, and compliments any color pallet.


4. The Best Room in the House

Basement Finishing Ideas - Custom Wet Bar

Custom wet bars are kind of our thing. This is where Jerry’s lifelong dedication to beautiful custom cabinetry really shines, and your guests will be blown away at your next gathering. Our wet bars are designed with the host who knows his or her way around the bar. Jerry’s wife is the ultimate hostess, and with her expertise, Jerry has been crafting wet bars that meet every need and whim of the celebrated party host!


5. The Paired Down Wet Bar

Don’t need a full bar? No worries, Jerry takes the same requirements for a great party and pairs it down for smaller spaces, creating seamless bars that will suit any occasion. We especially love this rich matte finish on these cabinets, which highlights the gorgeous white marble countertop!


6. Above Counter Sink (aka: Vessel Sinks)

Basement Finishing Ideas - Above Counter Sink (Vessel Sink)

These sinks are all the rage right now, and will bring a timeless style to your basement. This is a great storage saving style as well, perfect for smaller bathrooms where storage counts. It’s also a great way to create a custom vanity, or reuse a favorite vintage cabinet!


7. Custom Kids Playhouse

Another fun and fanciful basement, where the kids will get hours of entertainment! These playhouses are endlessly customizable. We’ve built them into stairwells, in large, unused corners, and have created a special place for the kiddos to play all day.
