About Project

At first glance, you can tell this basement is something special.

In the bar area, white shaker cabinets with black hardware pop against the warm oak butcher block countertops. The white subway tile backsplash keeps the space bright, and the Ottimo Ceramics tile on the island adds contrast. The black in the pulls and the island tile are complemented in the Matte Black Delta Trinsic fixtures and Edison bulb pendant lights. Concrete floors run throughout the space.

The rest of the basement living space is bright with Sherwin Williams Alabaster paint on the trim and walls. A contrast to the white, one wall is painted with black chalkboard paint above the built-in desks. A new electric fireplace adds a cozy element to this space and makes it a perfect hangout spot with the big-screen TV. 

The rest of the basement was finished off with a bedroom and bathroom. Alki doors with Matte Black Schlage Bowery hardware greet guests into these spaces. The bedroom received a Gun Metal finished Westinghouse Lighting ceiling fan to complete the look. In the bathroom, Paramount Piccolo patterned tile was used to add a contrast to the concrete floor, and a vanity and frameless mirror polish off the room.

Review From This Raving Fan

This is an overdue review, but it’s also important to understand the work pre and post-completion. Let’s start by saying we made the right choice to go with Zenith Design Build to finish our basement. From the planning process, the follow-up, and finally the finished project − their team is second to none. I was initially impressed with Nicholas’ professional demeanor. He is flexible, dependable, and easy to be candid with. Beyond that − his team’s communication was timely and accurate. Communication was the top criteria I was looking for when meeting with different builders because it was important for me to be in the loop and understand the progress. With a project like a basement remodel, unforeseen things will come up and the most significant thing was their ability to address and provide a solution immediately, which is not always easy with multiple people working on different pieces of the puzzle. On top of the basement remodel, we also had side projects that they were able to tackle as well. This simplified things for us and created a seamless process. Of value to any homeowner is the support beyond completion of the project. We reached out with a couple of things post-completion and Zenith responded and tackled our requests immediately, even though the issue was something outside of their contracted work! This unwavering commitment is what sets them apart. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Zenith Design Build for your building and remodeling needs.
