The step down living room in this 1979 Fridley home was in need of some updating. The homeowners needed more storage and had purchased a new rug that didn’t quite work with the outdated décor. Using the new rug as color inspiration the outdated red carpet was replaced with a neutral green carpet, the walls were painted with a soft green on part of the walls and warm yellow on the rest. To maximize storage cabinetry and shelving was put in on opposing walls. The left wall now holds a floor to ceiling custom cabinetry that allows for hidden storage, a place to display personal affects, and behind-cabinet doors shelving holding their stereo and DVD system. Opposite, there is open book shelving at each end of the wall, with a cabinet to hide the television & a window bench to add additional seating in the center. The room now serves as a functional entertaining space the homeowners will enjoy over the years.
