Centsational Girl is having a link up party of bathrooms before and after. She just re-vamped her friends bathroom, and what a difference it made. And she did it in 8 hours…superwoman! It looks beautiful, you should go check it out. When I saw her bathroom remodel, I realized that I have never shown the before and after pictures of Shannon and Nate’s master bathrooms that I renovated.
The master bath. Oh me oh my. This bathroom had some good qualities to it. Two sinks, lots of counter space and storage underneath. The size of the vanity area was perfect. It had good bones but needed updating. On the chopping block was the dated counter tops, the color of the honey oak cabinets, Hollywood bar light fixture, muddy brown looking floor tile and contractor faucets. The one thing that needed addressing the most, was the shower toilet room. When you opened the door it almost hit the shower and toilet. Then once you got in the bathroom, you would have to close the door in order to use the toilet. It was super squishy and poorly designed. Once I got in there and accessed the situation, I noticed there was some wasted space in the vanity area next to the window. Since the wall between the toilet and vanity wasn’t structural, I had the contractor move the wall out 16″, closer to the window and install a pocket door instead of a swing door which saved even more space.
