1970s Master Bath Achieves Best Contemporary Function
Before: Cheap remodel by previous owners, without permits. “New” shower is where the toilet used to be. Problems included:
- The shower door hit the toilet
- Water poured from under the door onto the carpeting when someone used the shower
- The second lavatory sink was inaccessible except if someone was sitting on the toilet.
1970s Master Bath achieves best contemporary function and appearance: New 2-person tile shower with glass blocks, whirlpool tub, separate lavatory cabinets, toilet and bidet. Faux-finished walls look like terry-cloth towels.
1970s Master Bath achieves best contemporary function and appearance with two six-foot custom European lavatory cabinets loaded with storage accessories to keep countertops clean. The bathroom features a tiled two-person shower, a toilet and bidet, and a hydrotherapy whirlpool tub.
The original bathroom had been remodeled by previous owners, cheaply and without permits. They had moved the toilet and used the space to create a small shower. They kept the ugly original 1970s color scheme and 14-foot sloped open-beam ceiling. There was no way to update the bathroom and enlarge it without completely gutting it and adding adjoining rooms (a small walk-in closet and the powder room). The 1970s master bath achieved best contemporary function and appearance! It’s now 8’ x 15’ with room for a two-person hydrotherapy whirlpool tub, two six-foot European-style lavatory cabinets (loaded with storage accessories), a two-person tiled shower, a toilet and a bidet, and unique “terry cloth” walls that make the Homeowners happy. Yes, it’s achieved Best Function + Appearance!
