The main floor bathroom was tiny. Tucked between the kitchen and the master bedroom in the original layout, its only entrance was off the kitchen, which was neither convenient nor accessible. One of the biggest challenges was increasing the bathroom space without sacrificing counter and cabinet space in the adjoining kitchen. Expanding the bathroom was essential so we could incorporate laundry facilities into it.
We tore down the original wall between the bathroom and the kitchen and built a new one, extending the bathroom by an additional three feet. To ensure there was no loss of counter and cabinet space, we built a custom counter and cabinet that extends into the dining room and enlarged the entryway, which did a great job of opening up the sightlines.
The homeowners selected paint colors that matched the rest of the house and chose more traditional looks like white porcelain, decorative molding, and traditional fixtures to pay homage to the building’s history.
