Basement bathroom - full or half?
When we discuss finishing our basement, dh and I can never agree about what sort of bathroom it should have. There is rough-in plumbing for a sink, toilet and tub, but I don't see the point in having a tub (or even a shower) in the basement.
We currently have two full baths upstairs, and a half-bath on the main floor. Dh thinks that, because we have four kids, someday we'll need another tub or shower (they're currently 12 and under, so they don't shower excessively yet). But all the bedrooms are upstairs (as well as the laundry and linen closet), so I wonder whether anyone would use a basement shower.
The only way I see it being useful is if we put in another bedroom in the basement. Two of the kids share a room, and we did at one time talk about adding another bedroom in the basement, but no one wanted to move down there by themself, so we have dropped that idea for now.
Do any of you have a full bath in the basement? If so, do you use it much?
