So before we get into the nitty gritty (love that phrase) we’re gonna do a little before post of the Master Bathroom of our home makeover.
This post is simply going to document all the pictures we took of the bathroom before we touched it and tell you what exactly we’re going to do. (Yep, we actually stuck to our plan, so stick around to see it come to fruition).
The floor, vanity, mirror, and light fixture are going to be replaced, and those drawers on the left of the sink are going to go away. We’re closing that off to make room for a slightly bigger vanity that has a bit of counter and cabinets, and then the toilet is going to be moved to just to the left of those drawers.
We are removing that wall on the left of this pic because it’s not necessary and it’s not load bearing, and it takes up space and closes this small bathroom up too much:
hehe, I’m peeking around the corner while Kyle takes this pic! ^ lol
We’re keeping the medicine cabinet because we find it useful and functional. We’re moving the towel hanger to a more logical location and we’re taking out that heater looking thing which doesn’t work and isn’t connected to anything. We’re also going to change the doorknob, bu we’re keeping this door.
Shower area. Good bye!
Yep, this whole tub is leaving… can anyone say DEMO??? This is where one half of the huge shower is going to be.
The only main thing we’re keeping from this bathroom is the toilet because it was in good shape and clean (however, we did have to replace the flusher when it broke! This picture actually already has the new flusher on)
This is where the other half of our huge shower is going to be. We have to remove that window (which is 4′ wide) and put in a window that is 2′ wide to make room for this half of the awesome new custom shower we’re (Kyle) is going to build.
You can see that in this pic, the flusher is a cheap plastic white one that broke. So we replaced it with a sturdier chrome one. Oh yeah, and we’re also keeping that toilet paper holder, because, why not? It still works.
In case you need a visual, here is a not-to-scale floor plan of our bathroom before:
And here is a not-to-scale floor plan of our bathroom after:
So that’s our plan of attack on the Master bathroom. What do you think? Do you think we’re crazy to rearrange everything? We really wanted to have a huge shower with two shower heads because, what can I say, that’s super awesome! So we had to move all the plumbing for the shower and toilet. Luckily the sink stayed the same.
This bathroom was a huge undertaking, but we’re not afraid of anything, so come back tomorrow and see us rip this thing apart!
