The master bathroom used to be a small fourth bedroom. Since this house had extra bedrooms on the third floor, we decided the small bedroom (next to the master bedroom) would be better used as a bathroom/laundry room. Since all the walls on the first floor were removed during demolition, getting plumbing to this space wasn't a huge issue. Here are a few things on our wish list:
1. double sinks
2. large shower
4. separate room for the toilet
This is what the bedroom looked like before becoming a bathroom.
Here's a during remodel photo. What a mess!
The space was large enough to be able to accommodate everything. We didn't want to change the look of the outside of the house, so we kept a window in the shower and just updated it with a new frosted glass window. Fortunately, there is a large tree right outside the bathroom window, so don't worry, nothing to see. We also wanted the bathroom to have characteristics of an old house. We used octagon marble tiles on the floor, marble subway tiles in the shower and carrera marble on the vanity.
The big mistake we made, was to make this shower a little to inviting to the children. They all want to take showers in here rather than their own bathroom.
The laundry room is right off the master bathroom and there is another door to the laundry room that leads to the 2nd floor landing. It makes it easy for everyone to throw their own dirty clothes in the hampers (hey, a girl can dream, right?).
That's all for today. Hope you enjoyed the tour.
