Bath Expansion In An Old House

Bath Expansion In An Old House

 

Euopean-Style Wet Room
We changed the old window into a passageway and expanded the bath to include a large vanity, storage, and European-style wet room containing a shower and soaking tub.

This was an old 5ft x 7ft 1930’s bath. A previous remodel had enclosed an old sleeping porch. For this remodel, we changed the old window into a passageway and expanded the bath to include a large vanity, storage, and European-style wet room containing a shower and soaking tub.

The bead-board wainscot, painted, built-in cabinetry, furniture-style vanity, wood-framed mirror, and stone-look porcelain tile maintain the period feel of the rest of the home.

European-style wet room
European-style wet room allows for a threshold-less shower. This approach allowed us to fit in a large shower and soaking tub. Shower doors or walls wold have limited the allowable size. Shower curtains help keep the heat in and prevent cold drafts while showering.
