The original master bathroom renovation to dated 1970s bath. The existing master bath was actually a very small room occupying a larger dressing area adjacent to the master bedroom.
The shower, toilet and one of the vanities was crammed into the very small bathroom portion of the dressing room, while the dressing area, which consisted of a row of closets and vanity and mirror, occupied the other part of the room. The shower actually protruded into a second bedroom. The object of the design was to come up with a better use of the space, with the addition of a new tub while keeping a separate shower. The second goal of the home owner was to brighten up the otherwise, dark room which is on the north-east side of the home.
Clyde Thomson came up with a design that made the vanities and mirror the focal point of the room, while at the same time accomplishing the goal of having a separate shower, bath and keeping the closet storage. The existing window opening was maintained with a new window, but a skylight & shaft were added to allow more natural light into the room. The elimination of the small room occupied by all of the fixtures, offered a bright, open and inviting room off of the master bedroom.
One slight problem of what to do with the shower area was solved by converting the space into a closet for the second bedroom.
The footprint of the overall room remained roughly the same, but the size of the new bathroom was two and a half times larger. The overall square footage of the room is approximately 120 sf.
The project has resulted in a bright, classically appointed master bath retreat with the inclusion of a new soaking tub, double vanity and separate shower. No master bedroom closet space was sacrificed, while storage space was increased using new medicine cabinets and vanities.
