Installing a basement bathroom can bring a lot of benefits, especially if you’ve converted your basement into a guest bedroom, game room or office. Having a bathroom down there will offer so much convenience to anyone using the space.
Before starting this project, here are some things to consider from top remodeling contractor JLR Home Renovation.
Consider the layout of your basement and decide where you want to place the bathroom. The project will be easier and cheaper if the bathroom is installed beneath an already existing bathroom on the upper floor. This makes plumbing and electrical wiring easier to set up.
Also, think about what kind of bathroom you want as this will determine the scope of your bathroom remodeling project. Will you be installing a bathtub or a walk-in shower? Or will you only need the basics like a sink and a toilet?
Consider the pipe size and plumbing depth. If your existing pipes are too small, your contractor will likely recommend choosing bigger ones to allow space for basement drains. They’ll also have to ensure you have deep drainage lines. If the plumbing isn’t deep enough, floor excavation might have to be done.
