Canada’s Tackiest Basement Gets a Praiseworthy Makeover

When Kera’s grandmother passed away, she and her husband Joel moved into her grandmother’s old house with their two boys. While they managed to update most of the abode, the basement was something straight out of the 1970s, and too great a challenge to tackle on their own. With low ceilings, orange shag carpet, and panelled walls that let most of the heat escape, the space was absolutely due for an overhaul. With just $40,000 to spare on the massive job, the pair called in Sebastian Clovis and Sabrina Smelko. Here’s how the Save My Reno team created a beautiful family rec room at a fraction of the cost.
