Bathroom Remodeling

When this client was ready for a new master bathroom, she knew she wanted more than a simple gut and replace. Four things bothered her. First, the bath was builder-grade and she wanted something nicer. Second, the bath was small. Third, there was a vanity outside the bathroom that was in full view of the bedroom. Fourth, the bedroom was large and plain, with no character or division of space. We resolved these concerns by bumping the bathroom into the bedroom by a couple of feet and framing-in the adjacent vanity to make an enclosed dressing area. This allowed us to recess the bath vanity into a nook and freed up much-needed floor space. We removed the tub/shower combo and replace it with a gracious tiled shower with bench seat and glass surround. Outside the bedroom, the new walls defined a space near the window where we created a reading nook, complete with window seat, recessed lighting, and a built-in bookcase. On the other side of the bedroom, the new wall created a recessed area for the door into the bedroom, defining the entry into the large bedroom space. In combination with replacing the bathroom and reworking one wall line, we created four separate spaces the client is now excited about (bathroom, dressing area, bedroom and reading nook).
