Catonsville Basement Remodel
Our homeowners had a large unfinished space in the lower level of their home but dreamt of a gathering place for family and friends that included a bar, television area, reading corner, home gym, and full bath. They are also world travelers and wanted a place to show off treasures collected on their travels. The design was created by our team and our designer Angela Smith started working with the homeowner to create a comfortable and up to date living space in the modern/industrial style. The homeowners were very open and the team meshed well together each contributing ideas to make the space exactly what the homeowners desired.

This custom crafted home was located in an extraordinary setting in Baltimore County, MD. “The house had a really unique style that I was able to read and create for their basement,” stated Angela Smith. “They were wonderful to work with, very open to different design ideas and the collaborative effort made the finished project beautiful. Working with an unfinished space allowed the imagination to flow freely, like a large blank art canvas.”
Some of the challenges they faced were to have the look they imagined at a cost that fits their budget. Angela’s expertise in design allowed them to visualize options that would give the same look and feel within the budget. For instance, installing concrete patterned wallpaper in lieu of a concrete wall in the bathroom and television area. When selections are chosen, such as tile, and had a long lead time their designer was able to offer other options and in this case, they loved the alternate even more. Working with Owings DesignTeam can assure you that whatever you have imagined for your home can be accomplished by their experience and creativity.
Creativity in working around support columns that are in all basements was a challenge for the open design style they wanted to achieve, but the end result reflects a solution that is unobtrusive and pleasing to the eye. Included with the columns that exist in basements is HVAC ducts. These were dealt with in a similar fashion as the columns and blend in the finished space nicely. All homes need storage areas and this was the case with our Catonsville project. We were able to hide the area with beautiful custom wood barn doors that added to the industrial style perfectly. Guests never see the HVAC or water heater or any of the items typically stored in a home. The doors actually add to the overall design. Take a look at the photos below and decide for yourself.
