According to home builders, the basement space is one of the most underutilized spaces in most American homes. Oftentimes, basements are used only as a laundry room or a storage area. Occasionally, it can also double as an entertainment hub for your family or even as a guest area. But if you want to improve your home’s functionality, you should consider converting this space into a bathroom. However, you’ll need to factor in some important things.
This is the most challenging part of a basement bathroom installation project. Unless you already have an existing bathroom in your basement, you’ll need to create a new plumbing plan for your basement. While this aspect can be costly, you can reduce the costs by placing your new bathroom near the existing plumbing and wiring to ease the hookup process.
Zoning and Permits
Your general contractor will tell you that it’s important to check with your local building department before starting this project. In turn, you’ll have a clearer picture regarding zoning ordinances, deed restrictions and other important stipulations. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this on your own as your bathroom remodeling contractor, Krier’s Construction, is familiar with the local building codes. This means that you don’t have to worry, thinking whether or not your project is up to code.
What kind of bathroom will you install? Will it be a simple half-bath with a toilet and sink? Or will you go for a full-blown bathroom that comes with a tub and a shower? Your decision should come from your needs and preferences as well as your budget. It’s also worth noting that every bathroom remodeling project should include strong ventilation provisions to prevent moisture-related problems from occurring.
