From Underused Bonus Room to Elegant Entertaining Space
The House Crashers team transforms an old, mismatched bonus room into an adults-only hot spot complete with a wine bar, custom French doors and a mosaic tile fireplace.
Before: Wood Paneling
Nothing says outdated quite like wood paneling combined with a red brick fireplace. The homeowners love to entertain but have no place to invite guests over, and this room has become the home's unused catchall. Giving the room a clear function and purpose will quickly make it the most inviting room in the house.
After: Stunning Mosaic Fireplace
The old brick fireplace was replaced with mosaic glass tiles and a natural wood mantel for a rustic yet elegant look that will stay in style for years to come. The sunny yellow walls were covered in a soothing blue hue that not only enhances the fireplace surround but also works to visually expand the room. Hiding below dingy beige carpet were gorgeous hardwood floors that now have a new lease on life.
Before: Enclosed Playspace
Tons of toys and mismatched furniture have quickly taken over this downstairs bonus room. The homeowners are less than thrilled with the old carpet and hope the remodel will create a more open and inviting feel.
After: Custom French Doors
The separating wall was completely removed and replaced with custom French doors that lead right out to the patio and swimming pool. An outdoor privacy fence allows the French doors to remain open for an alfresco feel that will be perfect for summertime entertaining and days by the pool.
After: Adults Only
A custom wine bar is the new focal point of the room. Custom built-in units provide a unique way to house and display the homeowners' wine collection, while providing an additional element to the space. Perfect for year-round entertaining, the rustic bar, made of soapstone and Monterey pine, immediately emits the sophisticated and party-ready feel this room has needed for years.
