Playhouse Under the Stairs
No space is wasted in this refinished basement. The empty area under the staircase was transformed into a dream kids’ clubhouse. To mimic the look of a real cabin, laminate flooring was installed on the exterior and bright orange shutters and a mini door added for a fun pop of color.
Stick the Landing
What looks like a large living area is actually a playroom for the kids — but, obviously, one the parents can enjoy as well. Multiple colors create an area that feels inspirational and creative, perfect for drawing, playing games or doing puzzles together.
