Ooooh, the bathroom is starting, the bathroom is STARTING! We decided on the layout for this small bathroom with a little help from my talented friend and ex-business partner Susan (Toronto Designers) and from Shane, our fabulous contractor (True North Renovations). After much consideration, we have decided to take a couple of feet from my office space in order to enlarge the main bath. Is it worth sacrificing a bit of office space for a separate shower? We say YES!
The room has a sloped ceiling on the left side so it made the most sense to put the tub and toilet underneath (our current shower is under the slope and the biggest impetus for the renovation). For those of you with a keen eye, rest assured, there will be a door. We haven’t decided on a pocket door or a door swinging to the left. Your preference?
Tip: Find a wide open space in another part of the house and use painters tape to lay out the actual floor plan to scale as in the pic below. This gives you a view of the complete space, impossible to do in the existing bathroom with the wall still up. Walking into the taped out space helps you to get a more accurate sense of size and spacing. And yes, I did actually get into that ‘tub’ with a glass of wine and it works just fine.
More to come soon, off to find a tub and toilet! xo
