Can people get there carpeted basements remodeled to have a bathroom in them?

If the basement has been carpeted for almost 8 years, Can there be room for a bathroom? And possibly the bathroom can have a TV in it?

Carpet isn't a big issue as it comes up easy enough. Putting plumbing in is what can be a huge issue. (and huge expense) And yes you can put a tv in it.

yes, but you need to look at the costs of the project....many turn basements into playrooms, or media centers for the family... less construction needed.
but certainly if you have the finances to do it, it can be done

What does the length of time a carpet has been on the floor have to do with putting in a bathroom? Of course you can put a bathroom in the basement.

Yes your bathroom can have a TV put in it. Better yet, just make the entire finished basement into one big bathroom. That way you won't have to go into a second room, and your friends won't have to either. Just make sure that each seat has a toilet in it. The couch can have a 3 seater.

Pretty much anything can be remodeled and/or repurposed... The big issue since this is a basement is drainage of the fixtures (toilet, sink, shower/bath)

Don't do it!! It is only possible if the carpet has been down for seven years!! If it has been 8 years it will make a tv not work properly in there! :P

Carpeting is not an issue. That is easily removed. It is the additional plumbing and possible lift station needed to accommodate a bathroom facility in a basement that could be an issue - both engineering and expense.

I do not recommend a TV in a bathroom due to the high humidity associated with bathroom uses, but it can be done, but be prepared to replace the TV more frequently than normal.
