Finished Basement Remodel in Madison, WI


Sweeney Design Remodel’s client was content with the overall configuration of their basement living space but desired a renovation to enhance functionality and optimize space utilization. The focus included updating finishes in the bathroom, bedroom, and family room. Notably, the laundry and storage areas were inefficiently organized, with a considerable amount of wasted space. Contrary to the primary need for storage, the client prioritized a workout area.


Sweeney Design Remodel responded to the client’s needs with a comprehensive solution that maximized efficiency and aesthetics in key basement areas.

Our creative team relocated the washer, dryer, and sink to the mechanical/storage area. By eliminating the closet between the laundry and mechanical/storage space, they created larger and more efficient setup areas. A dedicated wall was built around the furnace, offering ample storage and facilitating the creation of a workout space.

In the family room, Sweeney Design Remodel designed distinct zones for movie watching and sporting events. The wet bar received a facelift with new finishes and cabinetry, including a Look blu 2” x 9” glossy tile backsplash in a herringbone pattern and a Trends Harbor Quartz countertop, while the electronics underwent a significant upgrade. Wall-mounted TVs and speakers were added to elevate the viewing experience for games and movies. Additionally, low-maintenance finishes were introduced to ensure the longevity and easy upkeep of the revamped family room.
