We have been as busy as we can be between blizzards and BBQ’s, but we have managed to squeeze in some bathroom time as well. The renovation kind not the we-are-going-to-need-an-air-freshner-kind. We have made quite a few changes to the existing layout after taking a few years to figure out what is not working. Here are the major changes.
The shower always felt cramped which was especially bad with all the grime. You can see the kickout and the low ceiling pretty well in this photo.
So we ripped out the ceiling and after careful deliberation a closet as well.
That took a lot of convincing on my part since Christina was convinced our four vacuums (yes four) would never find a home. It added over two feet to the shower and we are now brainstorming tiled benches and jellyfish tanks. Ok I am brainstorming about shower fish tanks and Christina is brainstorming about redecorating the foyer.
We also decided to add more lighting. No compromise needed on that one. With no windows for natural light we wanted to make sure we had plenty of light by adding three can lights and a fan-light combo.
We also replaced all of the plumbing and most of the wiring, thanks to a ton of help from my parents. Christina is so excited to not be standing in a puddle in her shower since we also took this opportunity to snake out her drain.
Thanks to the suggestion of some of you all on our Facebook page we are also putting our outlets in the medicine cabinet so thanks guys.
We are getting drywall up this week so the room can actually start to feel like a room again, although we are loving the ability to walk in our front door and straight to the bedroom.
Thanks to my lady for making all the graphics for this post, where would I be without her. And she was so excited to announce the winner of the giveaway, so she made a graphic….of course.
