Basement Bathroom Ideas

Basement bathrooms add functionality for your lower level living area and increases the value of your home. To keep a basement bathroom feeling bright and clean, incorporate lighting and sleek updated fixtures and appliances. If at all possible, incorporate a window into the decor to consider advantage of some natural light.

Bathroom Lighting

Basements are saved to the lowest level of the home, they are often without windows and sun light. The more the light, the bigger the bathroom will seem. Remember that natural light might not trickle in as quickly as it does in your home. You will have to get light fittings which help to illuminate the room and get rid of any dullness. Apart from that, there are several other ways and techniques through which one can increase the amount of light that trickles in to the bath. One can, for example, easily fit in glass walls for the shower area (translucent or semi-translucent) so the light is not blocked but floods the whole room.

Bathroom Facilities

There might be a higher chance that the space obtainable in the basement is not as large as that obtainable in a regular bathroom. In such a case, you need to carefully choose your product or service for your bathroom design. Why get an over-sized bathroom sink that won’t only look out of place but additionally take up precious space? Exactly the same rule applies to the bath, cabinets, showers and other things that you will be fitting into the bath. There are many products available these days in all sizes, that are especially designed, keeping in mind the only a little space available. So choose all bathroom items that will fit this criterion. This really is one of the best bathroom design ideas for small spaces that you could bring into action.

Cabinet Space

Again, ensure that you do not put the bathroom cabinets where they’ll cut into the space of the bathroom. You may could only build one cabinet which stores the fundamental toiletries, while the other excess toiletries like guest towels, soaps etc. might be stored in one of the cabinets in the primary basement outside the bath. You can easily get these out when you will find guests over. It’ll not only save space but in addition helps open out the bath.

Mirrors

Mirrors will be the best way to create illusion of space. While designing the bathroom space, have the mirrors fixed at strategic places where will help to open out the room making an illusion of space. Proper placement of mirrors provides you with an open feeling to the one entering the bathroom, instead of a congested or closed feeling.

Cabinets

Another feature being well planned while making the basement bathroom could be the cabinets. Make sure that you don’t put the cabinets where it’ll reduce the space of the bathroom. When the space can be a problem, you may also do with just one cabinet holding all of the essential toiletries, as the other things like guest towels, soaps etc may be put outside the bathroom in the main basement.
