Bvbasement
We are in the process of purchasing a full-time living lake home in GA. The house has been totally renovated, which is great, but there is one bedroom that is in the finished basement which has all concrete walls (they said that it was put in like that to make it a tornado safe room).

The room was utilized by the prior owners as a very large guest room and just have the walls painted (the ceiling is regular drywall).

We will be using that room for our daughter as her bedroom and want to know how to "update" or improve the walls. Can you use bead board over them and then paint? Or is it better to have it professionally painted in fun colors? Or, should you stucco the walls (like we have seen in some bathrooms)

HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!

Thank you!!!!

Rachel

Think safety...............

The bedroom is required to have an egress window big enough to allow a firefighter to enter............

Sorry, I forgot the window. The 4th wall of the room is a glass double set of doors and windows leading to the outside.
