Basement Reno - the {almost} finished product

Ok, I'm a bit late posting this but the important thing is - it's here! The basement is pretty much done, and we are SO happy with it. All that's left is to get radiators installed (we decided to go with new, slim Stelrads) and then furnish the space.

As a reminder, you can see what the basement looked like before here, and in progress here.

Behold....the finished basement...
Bottom of the stairs and the door leading to cold storage.

 A closet we added (yay extra storage!) and door leading to the boiler room, bathroom and the laundry room (none of which were updated / touched)

Stairs, painted with porch paint

Closet and eventual "office" area

Since it's a basement and the height is just over 6 feet, we had to use flat doors and have them cut to size. The Mr. had the idea to add trim to the doors to make them more "finished". A simple change that makes a big impact! I wanted large pulls instead of typical door knobs; I think the style suits us and looks much more custom than flat doors.

We are really happy with how everything turned out - from the flooring to the doors to the paint colour (you NEVER know, especially in a basement how paint will turn out). Note that we hired someone to do the work for us - with Owen transitioning to 1 nap a day it would have taken us years to be able to finish it on our own ;) Even with hiring someone, the reno was pretty budget friendly, with most items sourced from big box stores. See below for sources - now for the exciting part, to furnish it!

Flooring - Beaulieu Kamina Oak, HomeDepot
Baseboards, shoe moulding - Lowe's
Paint (trim and doors) - Designer White (Behr); Home Depot
Paint (walls) - Moth Gray at 90% (Behr); Home Depot

I LOVE the floors and your decision to go with the handles on the doors instead of typical door knobs. It looks great and I can't wait to see how you furnish and decorate it.

Hello! I am finishing my basement and went with sterling oak floors. My 1st pick for wall color is Moth Grey, however I’m seconding guessing myself after looking at your post. Your basement is beautiful! The color on your walls looks more tan to me where on my walls it is super light. What finish did you use? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Wow, this austin-home-addition  is absolutely stunning! The attention to detail and craftsmanship are truly impressive. It seamlessly blends with the existing structure and enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of the property. I love how they've incorporated large windows to let in plenty of natural light and create a more open and inviting atmosphere. The design is not only functional but also incredibly stylish. It's clear that a lot of thought and planning went into this project. Kudos to the team behind this exceptional home addition in Austin!
