For this basement development in Calgary's South West community of Wentworth, the client wanted a space that was bright, had an awesome steam shower, and was a space the entire family could enjoy.  The basement includes a rec room, wet bar, guest bedroom, home gym, and a full bathroom with a large walk-in steam shower.  Because this is a family space, the finishes were selected with practicality and comfort in mind.  The custom built-ins around the fireplace provide both closed storage as well as display.  Instead of adding a wall for separation, the wet bar was designed to flow seamlessly from the fireplace built-ins and houses a dishwasher for convenience and a beverage fridge to keep drinks cool when watching a movie on the big screen tv.   The bathroom is bright and fresh with a custom built painted vanity and quartz countertop and the steam shower is a hit with every member of the family.  In the home gym, the cork flooring provides soft cushion underfoot as well as warmth.
