A house always has an unused basement. The people often fill the space with the unimportant items such as the old furniture pieces, gardening tools and other broken items. Actually you can make the basement as interesting space to gather with family and friends. Rather than filling the space with distressed a broken items, transform it into an attractive and comfortable family room. Decide the basement decorating theme. Make it look wild using the zebra print. You are wrong if you think that zebra print is too old fashioned. This print is popular again in the market due to the attractive look and colorful tone.
The family room can feature stylish black and white zebra wallpaper. The color on the wallpaper will never banish the modern look since black and white are often spotted inside a modern family room. The other walls in the basement family room look impressive in white, beige or tan color. Those colors can evoke the warm feeling which can update the coziness of the family room. Now look at the furniture design for the family room. Make sure that each piece evokes the comfortable style. Put a stylish zebra printed couch as the focal point on the seating area. Match it with a classic wooden trunk decorated with copper hardware.
Spread a black area rug under the coffee table to keep the feet warm when you access the basement family room in bare feet. It will be great if you can add some interesting features inside the basement. For instance, you can have a home theatre or a fireplace to give entertainment for the occupants. If the space allows, the corner can be used for a small bar. You can invite family and friends to have a small party until the late night here. Don’t forget to decide the proper lighting since the space only receives a small amount of lighting. The bar at the corner of the family room can be decorated with a series of glass pendant lamp with the counter decorated with LED strip lighting. The seating area located near the stone fireplace looks nice with white drum pendant lighting.
