Adding a bathroom to your basement is a sure way to add value and convenience to your home. The style and type of bathroom you add will depend on your space, budget, and specific needs.
Total Touch Contracting Inc. in Edmonton is a professional interior and exterior renovations company. They share some ideas for your basement bathroom addition:
A full bathroom has a toilet, sink, and either a shower and bathtub or one of the two. A full bathroom is typical on the main floor and often necessary. In a basement, the need for a full bathroom will depend on the space. For example, if there are bedrooms or a home gym downstairs, having a shower or bathtub makes sense. An additional three-piece bathroom will also increase value and marketability from a resale standpoint.
A half-bathroom is sometimes called a powder room or guest bathroom. Half-baths consists of a toilet and a sink. A half-bath is smaller, usually with minimal storage, and can accommodate a smaller space. A simpler bathroom is best for basements used as a second living room, playroom, or home office. It takes up less space and will save you trips upstairs each time nature calls. A half-bath is a good decision if you don’t have as much available space or have a smaller budget.
An ensuite bathroom is best for a basement suite, guest bedrooms, or a master bedroom in the basement. The bathroom connects directly to a bedroom and can be either a full or half bathroom. An ensuite adds excellent value to a basement bedroom and can be appealing to renters if you have a legal secondary suite. Or, for family members or guests sleeping in a downstairs bedroom, it adds comfort, privacy, and convenience. Your basement renovation contractor can evaluate your space. Then, advise you on the size and type of bathroom that would work best for an ensuite off the basement bedroom.
