Libertyville Updated Basement Remodel

At the very beginning of each home remodel, we sit down with our clients to hear their vision and goal for the upcoming project. The goal may be to update an outdated bathroom, add more functionality to a kitchen, or add guest space in a basement. For our Libertyville Basement Remodel, our homeowners were envisioning a great entertaining space. The basement of this home was a blank canvas for our team to work with. Our homeowners had a few requirements that they really wanted to see including a wet bar, tv area with storage, and a stage area for small concerts. This unfinished space had incredible potential, and we couldn’t wait to help create the entertaining space our clients were longing for!
