As we have discussed, many basements are often dark spaces with a lack of natural light, so why not play on this feature and create a dramatic impact with a dark ceiling.
In this stunning basement area, with a beautiful Helical staircase designed by Bisca, the design is defined by a luxurious mix of dark materials, such as wood and metal. Establishing a striking effect and contrast compared to the lighter and brighter upper level, as you descend the winding stairs, you are transported to a truly immersive space that feels like a unique, underground venue.
The dark color palette is softened by the use of natural materials such as the brown leather chairs, hides and warming wooden tables, as well as from the textured element of the wood used on the walls and floor.
A brave, bold design, a dark basement is not for everyone, but this space shows how a darker ceiling can sometimes work to great effect - an ideal choice if you want to use your basement as a cozy cinema or TV room.
