In Renovations

Before + After: Basement Bathroom

You’ve seen bits and pieces of it coming together. But since the inspector just signed off on it (I know it took us awhile…only because it took us awhile to remember to call him!) it seems fitting to do the reveal. We did everything ourselves, except for the plumbing + drywall. Sources are listed at the bottom of this post. This is what we started with as we rebuilt the bathroom. This photo is actually a few steps into the process, having replaced the plumbing under the house, new concrete floor, new walls, insulating etc. etc. But it’s a starting off point…

And this is what we created…..

One major choice was the pocket door. I highly recommend this, as it is the best thing for a small space. The other major element is the stand up shower. I love, love the shower. Eventually we’ll put in a glass wall but it’s not an issue right now, and not much water spray happens. The shower set it Moen, and I adore having the toe kick. (See this post on the shower) For those unaware of the toe kick, it means I can test the water temperature with my foot, prior to getting sprayed.  We created a DIY pivoting mirror after falling for one at Pottery Barn, but not falling for the price. (See this post on how we did it)  Since the bathroom is in my workspace (the basement is my studio/office) it seemed fitting to offset the formality of the finishes with some cheekyness. I created this art. One of the neat elements is this pivoting toilet paper holder. Honestly people, this is the best invention. No springs flying everywhere!

And there you have it. Our basement bathroom. 🙂 Amazing to see the progression of how it all came to be. (See all of the posts here) I’m kind of uber impressed at my husband. 🙂 Next up…Master Bath! 😉 (Kidding…kind of)

    The link to your mirror tutorial is broken. I am really wanting to read on how you did it.
