Insider Secrets: Basement Decor


KEEP IT LIGHT AND BRIGHT! Even a walkout basement like this one can feel dark and cold. The use of white, light colours and an open floor plan work together to keep this space feeling bright and inviting.

HAVE A LITTLE FUN! A basement family room is the perfect space to showcase your personality. Play around with your favourite colour, fun shapes and unique design details to create a space you’ll love.
