Basement Remodel – Week 6 of the One Room Challenge


ORC Blue

Can you believe it’s week 6 already? And technically this would have been reveal week but surprise! The One ORoom Challenge has been extended another week! Thank goodness!

So this week we focused on TRIM! We also worked on getting the cabinet hardware figured out, did some touch-up painting from all the various installs, and installing door hardware!



I’m in love with the SW Repose Gray paint color against the white trim, in a basement with few windows for natural light, I wasn’t sure how dark this would end up feeling but I have to admit I love it!


Speaking of trim, this homeowner (Tiffany) tackled the trimwork herself and did an AMAZING job!



She’s even working on installing the cabinetry hardware herself! (I also did this in my own Kitchen in last Spring’s ORC, you can read about it here).


That’s also another close up of the veining in the beautiful Wilsonart Haida Quartz, which you can find here. You can also read more about these gorgeous Quartz countertops in our Week 4 progress post linked here.

One of the most important facts about Wilsonart besides their quality products and a vast variety of materials is that they’re eco-conscious and hopefully, that means as much to you as it does me. It’s so important to know what you’re bringing into your home right?! You can read more about their sustainability efforts through this link here.


We’ve also officially started cleaning for final staging as well, which is a HUGE job in of itself after almost two years of construction!


See how we’re taking it from here


To here


In the next/last few days before staging, we have what feels like a million nail holes to fill in the trim, corners to caulk, and hardware to install! It’s officially crunch time!

So stay tuned for next week because we are SO excited to share the final results with you all and reveal what all this hard work behind the scenes has been about!

See ya soon!



Thank you to our generous sponsors of the One Room Challenge, without you we could not have made this possible!



As always a special thank you to the hosts of the One Room Challenge!

  1. oh such a nice office in the basement! Love the countertops and the mixed heights of upper cabinets … so inspiring! Wish I have the space to do the same. One day!

    Looking forward to seeing it all done next week!
