Basement Remodel in Kalamazoo, MI
This basement was severely flooded due to a city water main busting and dumping water into the basement for over three hours straight. After water remediation, we completely gutted the basement, ripping out all carpet and stripping all the damaged wall areas down to the studs to be replaced. In the two bathrooms, we removed all the drywall so we could install new cement board.
We replaced all the electrical outlets and switches. We replaced all the drywall (where necessary), replaced all doors, and installed all new custom tile flooring (DalTile – Acacia Valley – plank and DalTile – Carrera Lungard – hex). In the main bathroom, we installed a brand-new bathtub with custom tile shower walls (Interceramic – Solids In-Design – Gloss Graphite). We installed a new toilet and new floating Walnut Butcher Block vanity with vessel sink. The wall behind the vanity was finished with custom US Marble. In the master bathroom, we installed a new Aquatic Azra II soaker tub, new toilet, and new Bertch Interlude Hickory vanity with new vessel sinks and chrome faucets. We laid all brand-new tile in the shower (Interceramic – Tessuto – Ecru Gray), complete with a custom niche, and continued that tile around the entire bathroom. The floor was custom and hand cut to make the plank tiles match up with the hexagon tiles. The custom floor in the shower was made by cutting the plank floor tiles into small 3x3 tiles. We also added a walk-in closet and laundry room. In the laundry room, we replaced a previous entry door with an awning window.
