A New Bathroom For A Colonial Home In Sun Prairie

The clients wanted to update and upgrade the lower level of their home which serves as a guest area for family and friends. The issue was that the only facility in the space was a half bath. Guests needed to make their way from the basement through the foyer of the main level and up to the second-floor bathroom to shower in the morning. It was inconvenient, to say the least, and not very private for the family or their guests.

New Bathroom Construction

We broke up the cement floor to install drainage for the new shower and drainage plumbing and during construction, we discovered several code violations that we corrected. It seems that the original construction was probably an unpermitted “do-it-yourself” project. There was no venting for the existing sink and additional venting was found concealed in the wall where the door was located. We moved the vent to bring the space up to code, and rather than reframing an excessively out-of-plumb wall, we set it back to vertical while maintaining the existing drywall to install the new shower module.

New Bathroom Design Elements

Once we corrected the problems and brought the space up to code, We redesigned the space to accommodate the new shower. We also installed a new white Kohler two-piece toilet. Design elements included brushed nickel accessories including Mirabelle Vilamo towel bar, paper holder, robe hook and towel ring. Sherwin Williams Mystical shade paint was used on the walls and the flooring is Landmark Gray Platinum Luxury vinyl. The final result is a beautiful upscale look and plenty of privacy that both their guests and the family will love.
