A basement bathroom is a worthy investment. Such a space helps lessen the hassle of having to climb up to ground level every time nature calls. With this, you not only simplify home living but also boost your property’s overall value.
It can be a smart move on your part, but tackling this project is not something you can easily dive into. You need to be aware of the many considerations given the basement’s many complexities. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greater Grand Rapids, your local bath and kitchen remodeling contractor, discusses them in today’s post.
Getting Hold of the Requirements
As with all other home remodeling projects, adding a bathroom in the basement requires contacting the local building authority. Part of the whole process involves following deed restrictions and zone ordinances. Be sure to consult with a reputable contractor to guide you through the proper steps to make sure the project is green-lighted.
Finding the Right Location for the New Bathroom
Of course, you need to decide which part of the basement the bathroom will be built. Ideally, it should be as close to existing plumbing and electrical wiring as possible. Better yet, it should be built right beneath an existing one on the upper floor. From there, confer with your bath remodeling contractor in determining the type of bathroom you want.
Settling on the Bathroom Elements
A walk-in shower may be enough, but you may want it to have a toilet and a sink for a complete bathroom interior. If you decide to add a shower or tub in it, the whole interior must have ample ventilation and waterproofing to prevent problems caused by excess moisture.
