Finish Basement- Design Options
We are about to embark on finishing our basement. We have been debating hiring an architect and recognize we will probably be better off in the long run doing so. In the meantime, we are debating a few options and would love your thoughts. The biggest disconnect between my husband and I are the storage and size of storage. He believes storage should be immediately accessible upon descent in the basement and I believe in doing so it closes off the basement. Anyway, below are three options we are currently considering. Any insight, feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also, are there informative websites with good design ideas around how to box in furnace area, electrical boxes, etc?
