We had recently completed a bathtub to shower conversion for this homeowner, and the second phase of the project was to expand their master closet into the old shower area. This project was a perfect example of a simple bathroom remodel that opened up space for more storage.
Most master bathrooms are designed with both a soaking tub and a separate shower, even though most adults don’t use bathtubs these days. Eliminating the bathtub and turning it into a shower can not only free up space elsewhere in the bathroom, but the shower ends up being larger also. Removing an unused master bathtub is currently one of the biggest trends in master bathroom remodels.
For these homeowners, we decided to complete this project in two phases so they weren’t left without a working bathroom during either phase of remodeling. Our team has a many years of experience in keeping our projects organized and cleaned up, so the residents of the home are minimally affected.
In addition to adding much-needed closet space, the couple was tired of having a bathroom that was open to the bedroom. We have come across many homeowners in the valley that have homes built without a door to the master bathroom. That can be a problem and not conducive to two people sharing a living space and possibly having different sleep or work schedules, not to mention the lack of privacy. To solve this problem without creating an additional issue with a pivoting door, we squared off the bathroom opening to match the closet and installed modern sliding barn doors over the bathroom doorway and the newly expanded closet doorway.
The finished project resulted in not only expanded storage space in the master bedroom, but also a much better flow of living space. The homeowners were thrilled with both projects and each only took a few days to finish, so it was a minimal disruption in their home.
