Enjoying A Modern Space To Entertain

Entertainment areas such as the one in this Ankeny basement by Kimberly Development allow a lot more flexibility when it comes to design—there’s no need for major cooking appliances, so there’s more space for open storage and fun zones.

For the bar, geometric metallic tiles at the back create a striking focal point that complements the open shelves with interior lighting, providing a natural showcase for barware and contrast to the matte black slat-front cabinets.

This project was an entry in dsm’s 2021 Home Design Awards. See the 2022 winners in our March issue, to be released March 8.
