Basement Bathroom Renovations

Basement Bathroom Renovation. Is It a Good Investment?

This will be the first question on the mind of many people considering building a new bathroom in the basement of their home.

The fact is, basement bathroom renovations can be expensive, in fact, if you look thru our pricing and packages page, you will find basement bathroom being the most expensive item on our bathroom renovation price list. 

The reason is straightforward, basement bathroom renovation in Ottawa is the most labor and trade intensive among bathroom renovation jobs.

The plumbing is significantly more complex and involved than a regular 3-piece bathroom reno. On top of that very often all-new framing is required, if existing framing is in place, it is also often in need of modification.

A much larger amount of drywall and drywall finishing is also required for a basement bathroom compared to re regular job. Electrical, HVAC, and absolutely all trades are much more involved in a basement bathroom renovation.

 So Is It Still Worth the Effort?

The answer is an absolute “YES”. 

The basement bathroom is perhaps one of the only bathrooms where you are adding additional bathrooms into your house. By doing so you are significantly increasing the usability of your home and its functionality as well as its market value.  We at iBathrooms have been installing new basement bathrooms and renovating already existing basement bathroom spaces for quite a while. In absolutely all the cases the end result was a wonderful addition to an existing home.

The children these days tend to stay at their parent’s homes for longer and often time take advantage of having a bathroom in the basement. All in all, it’s a wonderful use of existing space and enhancement to a home you already have and love. Some of the basement bathroom ideas include a combination of a basement bathroom with a laundry room.  A bathroom with a walk-in shower for aging parents or guests.
