Custom Basement Bar Design

Basements are a great way to increase and create additional living spaces within your home.  This gives you an array of options in how you want to use the additional space.  You are given the possibilities to use it for storage, a secondary suite, or a fun recreational room for your family.  Just to name a few!  We are excited to share some beautiful photos of this custom basement bar design.For this project, this home originally had a big, empty, and open basement.  This gave NFID the perfect opportunity to add a basement bar curated to these homeowners needs and wants!  This fun renovation could have not been completed without Triangle Enterprises.  They are a local-based renovation specialist/contractor, known for their expertise in home renovations, customization and customer satisfaction.Custom Basement Bar Design by Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design, Calgary & Kelowna Interior Design Firm.

A Touch of Millwork

The basement bar is framed with oak stained ebony millwork.  The millwork successfully delivers the whole bar as a sole unique design feature for the space.  The lighter tones of the Tierra Sol backsplash tile along with the Caesarstone Raw Concrete quartz countertop effectively balance the dark hued framework of this customized bar.

The open shelving is backed by antique mirrors, giving this design feature further exclusivity. While accentuating glasses and other trinkets put on display in the cases.

Customized Bar

To maximize the use of the space, we designed a versatile functioning bar.  This bar serves for multipurpose uses.  The bar includes supplementary spaces that contains room for extra wine storage, a sink and dishwasher.  In addition to also working as an entertainment system.  Giving these homeowners the ability to have a place to sit and watch TV.  The accent lighting gives focus to the main features of the bar, highlighting the wine display and TV set.

In addition to the wine storage displayed on the shelves, we installed QTY 2 24” wine fridges, allowing for freshly cooled wine to be served.  The wine fridges are placed underneath the counter.  Along with extra cabinet space/drawers and the dishwasher. Successfully optimizing the space.

Fresh Floral Guest Bedroom Design

Having a guest bedroom is such a fundamental part of your home.  It gives you the space and the ability to host your guests comfortably.  The ability to have additional space for your loved ones is always important.  A separate guest room creates a space for your guests to feel more at home, away from home.Fresh Floral Guest Bedroom Design by Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design

For this guest bedroom, NFID created a cozy, yet stylish fresh floral guest room design.  Featuring grey and walnut tones, with teal popping throughout.  This space welcomes anyone who stays in this gorgeous bedroom.

Prints & Patterns

The prints and patterns featured, give this space an exclusive appearance.  Especially the floral wallpaper by Luiza Solent (Romo W387/03).  This feature wall showcases a contemporary take on classic floral.  With white flowers digitally printed with hints of teal and green on a light grey background. Beautifully creating a watercolour effect.

The colours presented on the wallpaper continue to flow throughout the space.  With the teal matching the custom made decorative pillows on the bed.

On the front of these custom made pillows is Designers Guild Castellini Gautrait (pattern number: F1939-07) is featured.  This is a teal material with a mosaic square pattern.  The backside of the pillow is contrasting the front with its darker hues.  The backside features a Camira Craggan ZAN06 Cave Charcoal wool fabric.

Modern Furniture

The furniture chosen for this space was surrounded around a modern motif.  The modern tufted bed in dove grey velvet successfully contrasts the floral wallpaper.

In addition to the smoky walnut and steel nightstands and dresser.  These elements balance out the lighter colours of the room with their darker hues and simple design.  The dresser also gives guests more options to store their belongings.  Towels and linens that can be stored away within the dresser for the guest’s convenience.

Adding on to the patterned motif is the custom made Roma Moulding 3 ½ Romo Electric White Lavo mirror hung above the dresser.  Showing the perfect contrast of the modern and floral motif of the space.

Laundry Room Renovation

Laundry rooms can often be seen as the “command center” for efficiency within the household.  It’s a space for storing cleaning supplies, extra appliances, and laundry baskets, to name a few.  In addition, laundry rooms offer a space of organization and working surfaces for folding and sorting clothes.  Ultimately this laundry room renovation is for the overall household’s convenience.This estate home already had space for a laundry room.  The problem was, that it didn’t meet the client’s needs.  They needed a few touch ups in order for it to become a fully functional laundry room.  NFID assisted in designing and renovating this home’s entire laundry room.  NFID focused heavily on good design and functional space in order to result in an efficient and appealing laundry room.

Good Design

The light colour scheme of the space offers an overall clean look.  The white cabinets and walls offer a mild contrast to the newly chosen grey hues.  Which are seen on the backsplash tile and quartz countertops in Caesarstone Raw Concrete. Accompanying the contrast between the light colour schemes within the laundry room are the dark oil rubbed bronze knobs and faucet.

Functional Space

The newly added white cast iron farm sink sits below the window of the space.  It was important to ensure that the farm sink was placed at the proper height. In order to be fully functional.  This was a key element in the renovation process.

To make use of the space and for additional storage purposes, wall cabinets were added on each side of the window.  Extending the cabinets to the ceiling.  In addition, the added cabinet design compliments the existing kitchen cabinetry.  Allowing the flow of the design and vibe of the overall home to be fluid within different rooms.Laundry Room Renovation by Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design, Calgary & Kelowna Interior Design Firm

For further functional space, pull out shelves were placed inside the cabinets.  Allowing for increased organization. Whether it be for cleaning supplies or a spot to store and organize linens.  The free countertop space also gives way for ultimate productivity within this laundry room.  Showing us that good design = functional spaces.
