Complete remodel after Hurrican Sandy
Shara Toobert
July 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
After having flooding in my basement after Hurricane Sandy I had to rip out sheet rock, replace flooring and have a dry basement system installed. Now, I am stuck putting a laundry room & bathroom back. This is my S.O.S. !

Hi Shara,
I think your cry for help is a little on the vague side to be able to give you to-the-point advice and tips. Perhaps you can post a floor plan of your basement and describe what you want to have in there.

Also, you can browse through the photo-section on Houzz (browse rooms) and select bathroom and laundry (under 'more rooms') to see lots of inspirational photos. I suggest you start two ideabooks here on Houzz, one for your bathroom and one for your laundry room and collect all the pics that you like in there.

Good luck!

Oh, and you can just attach images to a comment under here. Don't start a new discussion ;-)

Whatever you choose I hope you find it beautiful. There is nothing like walking into a laundry room that is beautiful! Mine is beautiful to ME - tangerine orange - and it feels like I get a hug every time I go in there. Makes laundry so much easier! So sorry for your problems, God's Blessings!

Go crazy with color. Paint a bright bold color, like lime green, or orange. It's a basement area, go wild. Have fun. Choose things you would never use upstairs.

Start by putting in cabinets to store things out of site.

Shara, What do you need help with? I have helped 6 clients rebuild their entire homes after the storm. My best advice is to create something more beautiful than what was there before! If you need help, please feel free to reach out.
