Bunker Basement Bathroom

Bathroom Remodel Idea Board

I can’t believe it has been about 8 months since this bathroom remodel was complete!  I will show you the ‘Before’ images and my idea board, and then post the finished photos after my Bathroom Remodel article comes out in the Idaho State Journal on Saturday.

We started with a basement bathroom in desperate need of some TLC.  Basically, nothing had been done to it since the home was built in the early 90s.  There had been a leak in the shower basin at one point, which necessitated a large hole to be cut in the drywall between the vanity and the shower.  My client had decorated nicely with the existing blue vinyl flooring, but was more than ready to be done with the gold shower and cracked vanity countertop.  Here are some Before shots:

The corner shower.

The vanity

 The toilet area, complete with basement bathroom miscellaneous. My client would like you to know that this was after all the decorations had been removed and that the spider and ant traps have found more discreet homes.

The clients wanted my complete input on the space, so here are some ideas I came up with:

    1. Hey Jolene! Yes, unfortunately the mirror and the rug were among the few things changed. But, I really love that mirror’s fun edges, so it might make an appearance in my own bathroom remodel down the line… I was sad about the changes at first, but I think what we ended up with works better for the space. We had to find an oval mirror to be able to fit the sconces on each side, which was more important to me. Hugs!
