Franklin Craftsman-Modern Lower Level

Project Overview

This couple was looking to add a little modern flare to their existing prairie craftsman house. The lower level that was acting as storage space and a workshop was ready to be turned into a hosting area for sports games. 

These clients wanted to keep the stained wood look from the upstairs, but also liked the idea of this space being unique from the upstairs. We went with stained, flat panel cabinets with granite countertops and a stone face on the bar area. In addition, we rounded the countertop with a wood bar rail to add a modern/​contemporary feel. The stair way was opened with a cable rail system and leads you right into the pool table area. Along the wall, we added a stretch of cabinets for storage and an additional serving space.
