Changing Room

A revamped basement caters to pool-goers


Homeowners with a backyard pool wished to outfit part of their unfinished basement as “a dedicated space to transition guests from the pool area into the living space,” explains Hopkins & Porter’s James Dyott, who spearheaded the project. On the list of requirements: changing rooms, showers, toilets, pool-toy storage, a washer and dryer and lockers. “The space had to blend with the home in a style the owners called ‘modern barn,’” Dyott notes.

Shiplap siding, industrial-grade hinges and light fixtures and old-school metal lockers conjure the look they were after, while a Brockway double sink by Kohler is paired with a mirror suspended by an antique pulley. Vintage benches reclaimed from a barn sit atop wood-look, porcelain-tile floors.
