The Best Reasons to Install a Bathroom in your Basement

Finishing your basement is a large project that can take a lot of time and money to complete. There are many things you should consider when planning your basement finish. How much does it cost to finish a basement? How many rooms do you want? Do you want to install a bathroom? Installing a bathroom takes more time and money, but the benefits that a bathroom finish can have for you and your family often outweighs the price. Consider these benefits that a basement finish can add to your home. Contact Premier Construction for custom basement and bathroom finishes in Des Moines!

Benefits of Basement Bathrooms


A bathroom in your basement is convenient for your family and guests by not having to go upstairs to use the restroom or access running water or plumbing. If you add a bedroom to your basement, your guests will appreciate having their own privacy without intruding on your bathroom upstairs.

The more budget friendly solution would be to install a half bath, with just a toilet and sink. If you frequently have overnight guests or family staying in your home, a full bath with a shower might be just what you need to make your guests feel at home.

If your basement space is used for entertaining or possibly a children’s play space, adding a bathroom can save you, your family, and your guests the hassle from having to go up and down the stairs every time nature calls. Basement bathrooms are also a safer, more realistic option for young children who have trouble climbing stairs.

Increase Your Home’s Value

No one likes the feel of a dark, dingy basement. By finishing your basement and adding a bathroom, it will no longer feel like a basement. Instead, it will feel like a comfortable living space where you and your family can relax and spend quality time.

Adding a bathroom to your basement makes it livable space, which increases the overall market value of your home. A bathroom in your basement can also be a huge selling point for buyers if you are ever looking to sell. When a basement is unfinished with no bathroom, buyers look at the basement as wasted space. Many homebuyers don’t want to put time and money into renovations immediately after moving in, so having that space already completed could make or break a sale. Buyers will pay a higher price for the convenience of a finished basement, basement bedroom, and bathroom.
