Germantown, WI Basement Finishing Remodeling Project By Bowles Group, LLC

The Bowles Group recently finished a basement remodeling project for a client in Germantown, WI. Like many unfinished basements, this basement was an afterthought used mainly for storage. We customized this basement to meet the needs and lifestyle of the homeowners. The family was growing and the kids desperately needed their own space. This basement finishing project included: large living space, in-law bedroom suite, full bathroom, kitchenette, and exercise room.

Basement Finishing Germantown, WI- Arched Nook

There was dead-space by the basement stairs, so we decided this was the perfect place to add a recessed arched nook. These nooks are becoming a big hit with our basement remodel clients. When finishing a basement, we almost always add this signature look somewhere in the basement. Using a contrasting color inside really makes the arched nooks standout. They are also functional as things can be displayed inside the nook.

Germantown, WI Basement Finishing- Bold Paint Color

These homeowners absolutely love bold colors. The rest of the house was painted in “safe” colors, so they decided to go with this bold color selection in the basement. Not everyone will react the same to color selection. Some people will love the wall colors, while others may hate it. But the basement is the perfect space to try more risky colors. Wall colors can easily be changed when you decide to sell your home. While you are living in your home choose a paint color that you will enjoy.

Germantown, WI Basement Finishing- Tray Ceilings

Ductwork and other utilities ran the entire length of the basement in the main living area. This is a common problem in basement remodels.  We turned this possible obstacle into a main feature by creating a tray ceiling with crown molding. We were able to save the full height of the basement ceilings which is always important. The tray celling with maple crown molding added a lot of pizzazz to the basement.

Germantown, WI Basement Finishing- Basement Bathroom

Custom Tilework In Basement Bathroom

This basement featured a full basement bathroom.  Adding a full bathroom is sometimes overlooked in basement remodeling projects.  But adding a basement bathroom is an excellent decision to add resale value to your home.  Furthermore, if guest are staying in the basement bedroom, they will have added privacy by having everything they need right in the basement.  Custom tilework is the main selling point of any bathroom, which we added in this basement remodel.

Germantown, WI Basement Finishing- Archway

There were two large archways on the main level of this home. So we decided to keep the same theme in the basement. The archways made it possible to cover up the basement support post. We installed custom maple trim-work to accent the archway.

    My wife and I recently purchased a home in Germantown with an unfinished basement. Needless to say we want to finish it off. It’ll consist of another bedroom, bar, bathroom (already plumbed), and gathering space.

    Please let me know if you would be interested in the work and putting in a bid.
