Basement Bathroom Designs, I think I had about 40 basement bathroom ideas floating around in my head prior to actually starting to finish the bathroom.
Your basement bathroom is really a project within a project. You’ll be working on finishing your basement, framing, electrical, and so on, then one day you’ll start on your bathroom and you won’t come out for like a month and half.
In this post we’ll explore the 5 key elements of your basement bathroom design. Plus, I will tell you the 3 things I would change if I could build my basement bathroom all over again.Did you know that most wolves mate for life? Well, that’s going to be you and your basement bathroom. Forever intertwined. Your mission is to make it out of there alive and with a 99% completed bathroom. To do that you need to consider these 5 design elements ahead of time.
5 Basement Bathroom Ideas and Design Options.Do you want just a half bathroom (toilet and sink only) or do you want a shower and or tub? How big can your bathroom be? Can you fit a closet for towels, linens and things like that. Can you have a full vanity and sink or do you need to save space with a pedestal sink?
Vanity or pedestal sink?
Full bath (with shower/tub) or Half Bath (toilet and sink only)
Tiled shower wall or pre-fab shower enclosure
Flooring – tile, vinyl, engineered wood, concrete?
Lighting – Recessed, dual mirror lighting, bathroom chandelier (that’s what I want!)
My basement design was for a full bathroom. A sink with a vanity (not a pedestal), regular size toilet, a tub and a shower.
I had enough room so I built a closet with a door inside the bathroom. If you have the space, a separate room for the toilet is a nice touch. Otherwise, make sure you check your code for how far from the shower your toilet needs. Lets using Basement Bathroom Designs.
