The past two tours here on the blog have been from a home in Davenport, Iowa we just completed a remodel at. This is a beautiful home that is still fairly new. The lower level of the home however, was ready for the final touches to customize the spaces perfectly for the owner’s lifestyle. We now wrap up our features with two spaces in the lower level that are unique and amazing! Take a look at this before and after of a storage room turned craft space. What a dream area for any creative!
Tons of added storage space in tall pantry cabinets that can accommodate boxes, bins and containers of all sizes. All of that tall, deep storage space plus an island area for a worksurface. This space will be used for crafting and sewing projects. We honestly wouldn’t mind any task as long as it can be done in this gorgeous room.
One side of the island has an overhang of countertop so a stool can be pulled up beneath it when seated to sew or work. A second “floating stool” can be pull up on any other edge of the island if needed. Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design is truly the very best surface you can ask for as a craft table! Quartz will not get damaged if your hot glue gun happens to drip down, it is nonporous, and you can even cut directly on it.
The island is built from a single drawer base cabinet including a total of 6 drawers to help sort and organize tools and supplies. The cabinetry in this Craft Space is from our Dura Supreme line. The Shaker door is painted in a gray “Storm” finish. We love how it pairs with the counters and flooring.
All of those specialized “extra” spaces of a home is what makes it a home after all. For instance, why get a gym membership if you have this space downstairs?!? Home Gyms are a great investment an can be placed in sometimes previously-unused spaces. This room was just a storage alcove a few months ago.
Now it is a perfect Home Gym escape! A Luxury Vinyl Plank floor from our Adura line is installed here and all through the hall and Craft Room as well. Adura Distinctive planks that are 6″ x 48″ in size in the Seaport Wharf color. Vinyl plank floors are great for spaces like this. They are durable and more warm on bare feet that ceramic tile.
