. . .Basement
The basement is transformed from a clutter catchall to a real room with the help of smart “furniture” picks. A glass-front black steel pantry now holds canned foods, bottled water, and other household provisions. A metal workbench keeps tools accessible; red plastic bins hide supplies. And a tall red metal bookcase stows woven-nylon bins that hold miscellany organized by category (summer items in one, home repair in another). For more details, see Before and After: Basement.
