Project Description


Making the Most of Every Room

Ridgefield, NJ

Read About This Project

Think of the least-used room of your home.

It could be the unfinished basement, the guest room, a neglected storage area.

Now imagine that we could reactivate that space and make it more functional and beautiful.

That’s exactly what Houseplay does … all the time. 

We reclaim spaces that have been relegated to storing dust bunnies and clutter, and breathe new life into them. 

In our Feels Like Home project, our team transformed our clients’ lower level from a neglected playroom/storage area into an inviting lounge area with a wet bar, complete with functional storage space for bikes and ski equipment. Our clients raved that Houseplay’s work transformed the way they live in their house. 

Our Secret Garden project allowed our client to access her garden year-round (even in the middle of an icy Northeast winter) via a beautiful bump-out window in the kitchen.

And during a recent Home Refresh session, I helped a client reactivate a front hall closet. It had been storing seldom-used items like a wet-vac and holiday decorations, while the hall was littered with coats and shoes. I recommended that the closet be repurposed for everyday items and the holiday decorations move to the attic.

For this basement remodel in Ridgefield, NJ, we started with a semi-finished basement – a cluttered office, an under-utilized back room, and a storage area.

We transformed the basement into a beautiful office and lounge area, and created a brand-new full bathroom. 

We also added closet space for hidden storage, replaced doors and windows, rebuilt the staircase, laid a new floor, tucked the washer/dryer behind doors, and painted everything for a fresh start. 

Reactivating an under-used space brings new energy into your home and can transform the way you live.
