Speaking of our basement renovation. We’re going to put in a really nice bathroom downstairs. We have a bathroom down there but it’s just a roughed in bathroom with a tiny grungy dark shower and a toilet. Right now it’s the main bathroom that my husband uses. I hate going down there!
Our upstairs bathroom is really tiny. It has everything we need but it’s sooooo small. So … if we renovate the bathroom in the basement when we do our basement reno I want a really nice bathroom … one that I’d consider our main bathroom and one that I won’t mind using one tiny bit.
We haven’t decided exactly what we’ll do down there, but I’m picturing a whirlpool bathtub with an overhead shower, toilet, basin style sink with perhaps Danze faucets and nice lighting. Since the bathroom won’t have a window it will need to be bright, but I suppose we could put a dimmer on the lights or perhaps have two sets of lights controlled by different switches so the lights could be lower if one was having a relaxing bath and wanted to set the mood with low level lighting.
Did I tell you that my nephew is going to plumbing school? Uh huh. I’ve already talked to him about our bathroom renovation and he’s more than willing to help us out. He even said he might be able to get a discount on some of the things we’ll need.
I hope we can start our reno sometime this summer.
If you have any cool ideas for a bathroom reno I’d love to hear them.
