As promised, I wanted to post an update for our master bathroom. Looking back at where we started, I’m not ashamed to say that I’m proud of our bathroom.
Originally, we had two bedrooms where the master bedroom and bathroom are now. We moved the existing wall, installed a support beam, closed off the hall doorway and put in a pocket door to the bathroom to conserve as much space as possible.
Losing that little bedroom was more than worth it. We now have a larger master bedroom and this:
Turning around to see the mirror and vanity:
And the other side of that wall, there’s a built-in closet:
Originally, I took some photos without the wide angle lens and it was kind of difficult to understand the space. It’s not a huge bathroom by any stretch, but the shower more than makes up for it.
It’s 4′ x 6′ and honestly a great place to start the day. We designed the bathroom to be handicap accessible, so there’s no lip on the shower and the vanity accommodates a wheelchair as well. Later on down the road, if we decide to rent the house to either a tenant or as a summer rental, we knew we wanted everything to be as accessible as possible. It also makes for a very comfortable space.
Here’s Lydia’s drum stool that fits nice under the vanity:
And a few more details:
Of course, the list of things we still need to do:
Replace the tile in the shower nook to sit flush with the sill.
Install the partition wall cap
Caulk the trim and shower corners
Put the door in for the laundry chute
Stain/clear the closet
…and try to keep it as clean as it is in these photos. Yeah right.
Thanks for looking!
