Julie's Basement Bathroom

Julie's bathroom was challenging because it was in an existing basement and didn't have a lot of room available. We used custom tile accents, a frameless glass tub door, a tile recessed wall niche, and set the cabinets and countertop underneath the stairs. These photos were a portion of a larger basement remodeling project:

This Corvallis daylight basement was transformed into a separate living quarters with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and office. A number of structural modifications were necessary, including removing concrete walls, widening passage ways, and strengthening beams. After the concrete floor was temporarily opened for plumbing modifications, a floating engineered wood floor was installed over the concrete slab.

There was an existing masonry fireplace in what is now the living room. We covered it with sculpted ceramic tile whose texture adds a 3-dimensional aspect to the surface. New custom entertainment cabinets were installed next to the fireplace. Julie wanted to take advantage of the home’s setting, so we replaced the windows to expand her view of Corvallis. In the bedroom, we cut through the foundation to create a fire escape window and window well, complete with a built-in ladder up to ground level and a safety glass guardrail.
