Basement Bathroom Remodeling


Basement BathroomOne of the best additions to a finished basement is to have a contractor install a bathroom. Not only does this add vast convenience to the living space downstairs but it can finally give you somewhere to slip away – to get away from all the noise of the family. Most contractors can do a great job on a basement bathroom install but you’ll need to provide direction in order to really make the space unique and your own.

Clearing Clutter – If your bathroom traditionally has a lot of clutter then you want to prevent that from happening with the new bathroom. Work with a contractor to install better organization in your new bathroom. You don’t need an expensive vanity with a lot of draws, just install some custom shelves that keep things organized and up off the counter

Frilly Towels Rule – You can really flesh out a spa-style bathroom with linens and fluffy towels that match the overall d├ęcor. Most of us will tuck our towels away in linen closets or under the sink. Have your contractor install some custom towel racks or a linen display that keeps your colorful towels out in the open.

Fill the Air with Fragrance – Aromas have a way of altering mood, often in a powerful way. The spa bathroom in your basement is a great place to offer up an array of smells depending on the mood you want, but most bathrooms don’t have a lot of surface area other than the counter. Instead of propping candled on the edge of the tub, on chair or on the floor you can work with a contractor to build out shelves specifically for holding oil warmers or various candles.

Upgrade Electronics – Bright lights are necessary in a bathroom, especially around the vanity, but they aren’t necessary all the time. When you want to enjoy a relaxing bath and you need to set the mood, you want to be able to turn the lights down without relying only on candles. Install a dimmer switch for your bathroom lighting in the basement so you have more control over the intensity of the light. This can give your bathroom a more natural and comforting glow.

Get Lavish – Wall sconces are a luxury but they’re another option to adding candles and controlling the lighting within your bathroom. Not only are they a great way to set the mood for relaxation in your bathroom but they’re easy to install – especially if you install sconces meant for candles alone.

Go beyond Tile – Tile is the ideal flooring for most bathrooms but you can add to the comfort of your bathroom space by having a contractor set you up with a good water and stain resistant carpet. For a secondary bathroom meant primarily for relaxation, a soft carpet can feel great on the feet those rare occasions where you use the spa to relax.

Of course what you do with your basement bathroom and the remodeling of that area is only limited by your desires and imagination. If you don’t want a cookie cutter bathroom but you’re stalling on ideas, you can always give the contractor a general idea of what you’re looking for – they can help you along with design ideas from there.
