A reconfigured entry creates a welcoming foyer-like space for family and friends to enter the home through the lower level and into this redesigned basement with media room, guest bath, laundry and mudroom all in a Modern Farmhouse style. Using classic brick style subway tile for the backdrop of the freestanding claw foot tub, this charming bathroom provides relaxing comfort for guests. The grey and white pattern flooring is an encaustic tile; using colored clays instead of glazes to create the pattern. Down the hall, the laundry room floor has a complimentary tile pattern producing a beautifully balanced space. Throughout the hallway and living space engineered wood flooring and eclectic lighting tie all the elements together and provide charm and ambiance to this warm basement living space.
