MD BLOG works to give Drywall ideas and knows basements have a narrow stairwell that is completely closed in. This image shows how dark this staircase is and how the walls make this space feel closed in. The customer did not like this tunnel down into her basement.
This is a great “After” image of the same staircase! Now the same staircase has become an architectural feature that allows light to pass through and enlargens the space in this basement. It joins the two spaces to make a great family entertaining room!
