Making a Basement Brighter
We recently moved into a new home to be closer to the school we want our daughters to attend. We love our new home: it's a bit bigger, has a garage, and the best part, it's on a cul-du-sac! Needless to say, we'll be spending many years here and it truly feels like home.
Another reason we decided to move is because we needed a space for my mother. She lives with us 5 days a week and takes care of the kids as our nanny. We needed a nice space for her to call "home." Creating a basement that doesn't feel like a basement is no easy task. But with a bit of help from Wicker Emporium, we successfully bought a few key accessories to enhance the look.
Basements are known for old couches and dingy colours. Rather than go with the traditional cream coloured walls, we went with a bright red to make it feel more like a main floor and less like a basement. We also purchased a brand new sectional couch, have a large flat screen TV and other modern furniture (including a bookshelf from Wicker Emporium we purchased a few years ago). But my favourite product that we added to the space is this large vase with bright white orchids. This accessory would be more typical for a main floor rather than a basement. It's the first thing you see as you walk down the stairs.
We went shopping just before the holidays and most of the products were on sale, so we also purchased a few Christmas accessories: ornaments for the tree and placemats for the table.
We've been shopping at Wicker Emporium for years and have bought everything from small accessories to large furniture pieces. I love supporting this Atlantic Canadian retailer.
