Basement Design: Adding an ornamental Concrete Finish Inside the South, you don't discover a lot of homes with basements. However, were considering purchasing a property that has this extra space. It's unfinished, but we're still excited about the possibility it has. I have a amount of design ideas for the room. The flooring is concrete. As opposed to try and alter that, I'd like to add a decorative concrete finish, so it looks like marble. My sister actually had this completed in her house, and i also love the look. It stands up well to the kid and dog traffic, too, which can be important to me. Beyond that, the basement is currently one large space, and we want to divide it up somewhat. I want a craft room, your children want a playroom, and my hubby wants a theater room. We now have enough space to produce this all work, although I not really know about the budget! I'd like to have one open area, where people can sit and mingle after they come over. All this continues to be in the dream phase, because we have not purchased the house. However, it is looking more and more possible each day.
