Island View Road Project: Lower Level Before & After

It’s no secret that we love a beautiful before & after moment. While it’s always fun to start a project completely from scratch, there’s something even more satisfying about taking a space and transforming it completely. That was certainly the case for our Island View Road project’s lower level.

We couldn’t be more excited with how it turned out and we have a feeling you all will love it too! In today’s reveal, we’re sharing a tour through the entire lower level of the home including a living space, kitchenette, laundry room, powder room, and mudroom. Whew, that’s a lot to cover so let’s get right into it!

For an active Minnesota family, there’s no better dream than having a home right on one of our 10,000 lakes. For our clients, their home was in the perfect location, had ample amount of space for themselves and their kiddos, but was lacking in thoughtful design. Right outside their back door was incredible, waterfront views but you wouldn’t know that by walking through their lower level. In order to give them a beautiful, bright, inviting, and functional space for them and their family and friends, we knew that some major changes needed to be made. And that’s exactly what we did!

By completely renovating and re-furnishing their existing space, we were able to give them an area that they would truly love to be in year-round.



A pass-thru window is featured beside the kitchen so their family and friends can easily jump out of the lake and enjoy a snack or drink. At the island, Brooke & Lou’s Taylor Counter Stools in our Life-Friendly fabric sit so that there are no worries when it comes to wet swimsuits or messy spills!

In the mudroom, a herringbone brick floor provides warmth and durability for this high-traffic area. Hanging on the wall, hooks shaped like fishing hooks give a nod to the lake that can be directly spotted from the large window.

Emphasizing the coastal style even more, the bathroom features nautical colors and details that can be seen in the tile and round, porthole mirror.
