Basement Bathroom, Family Room and Laundry Room Projectcomments (0) November 15th, 2011 in Project Gallery
This basement was full of awkward spaces and configurations. The existing structural posts and mechanical piping created a design challenge.
We started by moving the electrical panel out of the bathroom (per code) and into the laundry room, and then remodeled the bathroom. The bathroom has a neo-angle tile shower, tile floor, glass block window, and a new toilet and pedestal sink. The Laundry room floor and steps were also leveled and tiled and pipes were framed and sheet rocked to create a much more attractive room.
The main family room was improved with the installation of glass block windows, leveling of the floor and installation of Gold Mine Kult Marmoleum flooring, new paint and trim.

Want to see the winner entries?
Fine Homebuilding editors are a finicky bunch, and opinionated too. So the task of narrowing down the nearly 150 entries from our “Before and After: What’s Old is New Again,” kitchen and bath contest to just five winners wasn’t easy.
After the field was narrowed down to a group of fifteen, the editors convened with coffee and notebooks into a conference room equipped with a projector (for easier viewing). After going back and forth, and sometimes cringing, a few entries kept rising above the others, and viola, we found our winners.
Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to the winning participants who will be mailed a new, DeWalt 18V 1/2" XRP LiIon Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver kit.
