2008 Bath Remodel Under $40,000

The original configuration of this bathroom and adjacent closet was confusing. There was a narrow doorway tucked behind a chimney, a dysfunctional set of shelves and drawers that served as a linen closet, and a long narrow closet lodged behind the bathroom. Everything bout this space was wrong. The clients direction was to create a spa-like environment that felt open and relaxing.

The new design called for relocating the bathroom door, taking over an existing closet, and creating two new closets for the adjacent bedrooms. This provided enough space for a walk-in shower, soaking tub, custom linen storage and a custom double bowl vanity.

Natural light streams through a fiberglass shower window through a piece of eco-resin that serves as the shower wall. The wall between the tub and the shower has a small opening that makes the tub feel private. The vanity design allows for both concealed and open storage. The shelving is integrated into the large oval leg that serves as the visible end of the vanity. The countertop is remnant granite and is shaped to allow for maximum storage while not impinging on the window or the ability to use the space
