Whether you opt for a small powder room or a full fledged guest bath, adding or renovating a basement bathroom is a choice many homeowners are currently making. Why are basement bathrooms so popular? Check out our blog on this very topic HERE.
Recently a Plainfield family came to us and asked J&J to address their dated, dark basement bathroom. Thrilled to work with this family for a second time (check out their stunning Primary Bathroom transformation HERE), this remodel included an upgrade in every way!
One of the first tasks we addressed was getting rid of the soffit angle over the toilet. It offered an awkward angle that was unappealing and served no purpose. The remodeled result was a clean symmetrical soffit with a can light directly above the toilet.
We’ve also replaced the mustard colored walls with Benjamin Moore Regal brand in Seapearl OC-19. If you’re unsure of paint color for your basement bathroom space, this is a nice choice with equal parts cream, beige, and gray. It’s bright but still provides some warmth.
The old vanity area was replaced with a classic modern, one sink vanity with plenty of storage below. This is a Bertch cabinet with the Osage door style in cobalt blue, semi-gloss finish. Homeowners are still finding themselves attracted to this blue color in every area of their homes from formal rooms to bathrooms to kitchens.
The hardware knobs used here are in “Composed Polished Chrome” by Kohler. The neutral Quartz countertop is Hanstone Italian in Waves. The square edge detail and the rich, gray vein pattern add an element of interest and movement to this Tuscan, classic top piece.
We’ve replaced the old toilet with a Kohler highline elongated toilet, truly an industry staple thanks to its superior performance. Comfort height is a must. You’ll also notice a drastic difference in this bathroom largely in part by replacing the floor. Out with the dark and in with an elegant, light hue that only compliments other features in the bathroom. This floor is set in 12×24 tiles in “Layers Chalk”.
Even your out-of-town guests will feel comfortable getting ready in this bathroom because it doesn’t feel like it’s in a lower level, but rather provides a modern space with plenty of bright light and space.
This is an oval, semi-recessed Kohler Veil bathroom sink. Its balanced curves provide elegance with a contemporary style. Although the edges are thin, the sink is quite durable. The faucet is Kohler Composed Tall Single Handle in Polished Chrome. This is a single-handed bathroom sink faucet that pairs nicely with the sink and vanity.
