Back in 2019 when we were house hunting, a finished basement was on our “must have” list. We also wanted a newer build though which meant we most likely had to sacrifice one or the other since majority of newer builds here are designed with an unfinished basement.
The house we fell in love with was 8 years old & it checked off all our other boxes including the most important, a kid friendly neighborhood. So the unfinished basement wasn’t a deal breaker for us after all & we loved the idea of one day making the space our own.
Well 2 years later with the help of our amazing contractors we were able to make our dreams a reality! We didn’t imagine choosing our flooring + paint colours online without seeing them first (thanks lockdown) but thankfully we loved everything just as much in person. Now that our lockdown is HOPEFULLY coming to an end finally, we’re excited to take on furniture shopping & turn it into the cozy space we’ve been dreaming of. Once our furniture arrives I’ll share more photos but for now, here are some before + after photos of our new space before it was completely taken over with toys. 🙂
