When a frozen pipe in the kitchen of this split-level home caused a flooded basement, the homeowners decided not to just keep everything as it was, but to take advantage of work being done there and make some improvements they'd been thinking about for a while.
First, instead of repairing the laundry room, they moved the laundry up a level.
Next, the former laundry space was transformed into a fully-functioning bathroom, borrowing space from the oversized bedroom next to it. That bedroom was then spruced up. The final result was a bright, pleasing bedroom with a beautiful attached bath.
This laundry/bath/bedroom re-work in the basement was coupled with a kitchen remodel to take full advantage of the efficiencies in tackling multiple home improvement projects at once.
