Ultimate Basement Hangout
Basement Hangout in Manassas, VA
Mary Pat Collins Photography
Cue up the fun! This ultimate basement hangout has it all from a game space, chill zone, bar, movie theater, guest bedroom, full bathroom, and powder room. It’s sophisticated, without being stuffy!
These clients in Manassas, VA contacted us because they were ready to have some fun with their loved ones and company and wanted the ultimate basement hangout space for time together with family and friends.
When we started, the basement was unfinished and we were delighted to take it from drywall to a beautifully furnished space that will provide years of fun, connection, and relaxation!
Putting the FUN in Functional in this ultimate basement hangout!
This space is a dream come true for family fun, complete with a movie theater, shuffleboard table, dartboard, pool table, TV watching area (complete with wet bar), candy/popcorn counter, guest room, powder room, and full bathroom.
This family and our design team didn’t hold back! The home theater welcomes you in with its luxuriously soft, plush carpet and transports you to an old-time movie theater feel with class. Six, oversized, beyond-comfortable reclining chairs invite you to sit back, slow down, and catch your favorite movie. Trays hold snacks, beverages, and remotes so there’s nothing to do but relax and take in the show. The walls are a warm taupe color with black sound panels to absorb the sound of the theater and we added contemporary sconces to provide a soft glow when needed.
Memories Made Around Food and Fun!
The candy/popcorn bar fuels the fun with space for everyone’s favorite chips, dips, and cookies! The popcorn machine is ready to pop up some fresh corn before pressing “play” in the theater and the ice machine ensures drinks stay cold all night long!
We love the three fun and whimsical pendant lights that give this area a traditional candy counter feel. Our clients are fans of all things Coca-Cola and love these antique trays made just for the storage of all their yummy treats.
Sophistication without the Stuffiness
While waiting for your turn at the pool table, this custom live edge bar provides a spot to sit, rest, and have a sip (or two). The homeowners love trains, so we had this bar custom-made with two railroad ties as support to bring a sophisticated look with a favorite family theme.
Home is Where the Shuffleboard is
Our clients love entertaining and know how to have fun with their company! No one can ever complain they’re bored with shuffleboard and dartboard ready to go. We featured some of their records as artwork to turn up the energy in the space, and inspire even more of a laid-back feel!
The pool table and shuffleboard finishes are the same and contrast nicely with the rich-looking LVP floors which are a practical choice for high foot-traffic areas where being waterproof and easy to clean are of utmost importance!
We also love that the hanging light fixtures above each of these game tables mirror one another!
For When It’s Time to Just BE
We added a new fireplace to cozy up to and relax in front of as well as to create ambiance. The mantle is from an 1800’s barn and was custom-made for the space. The textures of the tile bring in interest and tie the color palette of the space together.
The full bath has all the calming features and feels a bit like being at your favorite day spa. With aqua glass subway tile in the shower, a soothing river rock feel in the bottom shower pan and upscale leathered granite countertops that tie into the countertops in the main part of the basement. Their guests may never want to leave!
The ultimate basement hangout, this space has something for everyone, and then some! It’s a beautiful blend of fun and playful with sophisticated and timeless. It creates connection and community by welcoming in family and friends with a warm, laid-back vibe that can be enjoyed for years to come.
