Basement Before and After

"Form follows function - that has been misunderstood.
Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union."
Frank Lloyd Wright


There's not much to say about the basement other than it was a sad, sad place. There were tenants living in the basement when we purchased the house, and bless their heart, they repainted everything white in an attempt to brighten the place up. I didn't have the heart to tell them that we'd be gutting everything down to the framing. Check out the before pictures below:


Basement bathroom before. 
The shower was approximately 24" x 24" and the ceiling height was 6' - 8"!
Kitchenette before. Notice the low, tiled ceilings.
 
Laundry room before. How was the washer accessed?

On paper, I'm very happy with the functional changes I've made to the basement. Most notably, I rearranged the laundry room entrance, added a bathtub to the bathroom, and added a linen closet to the hallway. I also raised the ceiling height throughout the entire basement. The result? The perfect combination of form and function. See below:
