Millions of homes across the country have basements, but few have a basement as functional as this indoor/outdoor design found in Washington State. These homeowners envisioned a space where its difficult to determine where the outside ends and where the inside begins. There are several details from this basement that you could use to inspire your own home design, including its:
- Indoor/outdoor connection The continuous teak slat ceiling and steel frame connect both the indoor and outdoor space for a cohesive design. This aligns the exterior garden pavilion with the modern interior.
- Versatility A glass wall folds back to let in plenty of natural light and provide a seamless transition between the home's interior and exterior. There is another folding glass door inside the home that conveniently separates the living space from the basement bathroom.
- Hidden storage Hidden storage located under the stairs keeps the basement appearing sleek and uncluttered. This is an excellent example of maximizing your available space and strategically utilizing built-in storage.
