A Home for the Holidays

Do you long to host holiday gatherings but worry you don’t have the space to accommodate your loved ones? Your basement may be the perfect solution! With a Bailey basement remodel, you can transform your lower level into the perfect space for a guestroom, playroom, extra bathroom, or all of the above. Let’s take a look at how one Louisville family upgraded their basement to be a warm and cozy holiday retreat:

A Place to Gather


To entertain your guests, you’ll need a welcoming spot to relax and turn on those treasured holiday movies. Here, a cozy couch sits in front of a wall-mounted TV in the sitting room, surrounded by open shelving, a slat wall, and shaker-style cabinets. An organically shaped wooden ceiling fan draws the eye up and adds further character. There was no sacrifice of storage in this basement — two spacious closets provide all the space this family needs for board games, toys, out-of-season clothes, and anything else they wish to keep out of the way but within reach.

A Place to Play


If you have young children coming over, a basement playroom will provide an out-of-the-way spot for them to play and keep their toys. This playroom is set up for endless imaginative fun, with a cleverly crafted play fort next to the stairs for an unexpected and impossibly fun place to pretend.

Gorgeous wood flooring continues from the sitting room, and the two spaces are joined by a pair of stunning (and space-saving) sliding barn doors. A ceiling-mounted swing is a perfect spot for reading or daydreaming.

All The Necessities

A guest suite complete with a full bathroom provides a luxurious level of convenience, privacy, and comfort for your overnight visitors. This bathroom includes a beautifully tiled glass-door shower, and a simple but elegant vanity.

Many homeowners have their washer and dryer in the basement. If you’re also using the space for guests, it may be a good idea to separate the spaces or add convenient, decorative touches. These homeowners chose to surround the washer and dryer with a table for an uncluttered spot to fold clothes. All laundry necessities are close by and out of sight with added cabinet and drawer storage.
