Refine Your Bath Experience

Simple basement bathroom designs include the installation of a bathtub, shower fixtures, a sink vanity and more. All of these options come in a variety of sizes, shapes and designs. Floor coverings are also an area of design opportunity. Vinyl, linoleum and ceramic tile are often the best materials for bathroom spaces given the moist environment that is common to these spaces.

Cabinets and wall shelves create adequate room for storage. Consider purchasing a standalone cabinet that can be situated next to a sink vanity or along a side wall. Remember to use vertical space by installing storage units or built-in wall shelving from floor to ceiling.

Budget-friendly additions include new wallpaper, a fresh coat of paint, a rug or shower curtain. Accessories like a soap pump, towels or a tooth brush holder are also fun for adding unique flair to a bathroom space.
