Contemporary Craftsman Bathroom Plus Closet Addition
Before: The all-white traditional bathroom didn’t fit the “Craftsman Contemporary” home. Homeowners never used the tub.
Before: White lavatory, doors to closet (left) and toilet-shower room (right).
Before: Seasonal clothes, everyday clothes, and special-occasion clothes, shoes, and accessories were crammed into this small closet.
Contemporary Craftsman Bathroom plus Closet Addition has a two-person shower, and reconfigured lavatory cabinets provided great storage. Slate floors, tile shower, radiant heating, granite countertops, slate accent tiles maintain the “Contemporary Craftsman” style of the home.

Contemporary Craftsman Bathroom plus Closet Addition: Approximately 360 square feet of unused attic became the gigantic new walk-in closet. Banks of storage drawers divide her side from his side. A custom hamper bench provides a perfect place to sit while dressing.
Contemporary Craftsman Bathroom plus Closet Addition: Custom layout provides all the storage for hanging and folded clothes for every day and special occasions, and drawers for underwear.
The contemporary craftsman bathroom + closet addition was created because Homeowners had several problems with the original all-white traditional bathroom:
- The tub was never used (but needed to be cleaned regularly); a two-person shower replaced the tub, with slate accent tiles around the windows.
- White lavatory cabinets (with white tile countertops) had small drawers, bad storage; new cherry cabinets were custom designed to maximize storage of personal-care products.
- The existing shower-toilet room could accommodate only one person at a time; it became the new laundry room, accessible from the adjacent main hallway.
- The walk-in closet was too small; an unused attic became the new 300-square-foot walk-in closet, with custom back-to-back drawers dividing the two areas for the couple.
- Special bonus: The existing closet became a new hallway to access the new walk-in closet and a new private mezzanine den for the couple over the living room.
