We converted this bathroom from half the size you see here to the bathroom you see now. Older houses have small bathrooms by design. Today, we want larger master baths with a luxury spa like feel. It can be difficult to incorporate a larger master bath into an older existing home.
The existing bathroom here was 5 feet wide with a small corner shower. There was barely enough room for a single sink and a toilet. There was no way my wife was moving into this house. So, we took out a closet and moved a wall 3 feet. It now gives the bathroom a more spacious feel to it.
Installing a granite counter top with dual undermount sinks and high gloss faucets complement the slate tile wall with textured marble accent.
The shower has a 8” piece deep granite shelf to store towels for convenience after your shower. There is a corner seat, and a river-rock floor at the base of the shower, with a glass wall.
The glass wall has a rainfall texture. This helps hide water spots and reduces the frequency of cleaning required. The glass is purposely left about 8 inches below the ceiling. This gap allows for the steam to flow out of the shower towards the exhaust fan, reducing moisture build up and risk of mould.
Luxury is further expressed with a rainfall shower, and 6 body jets, and a wand. The water flow is controlled by knobs on the wall. The rainfall shower has LED lights that change colour based upon the temperate of the water.
The total cost of this bathroom renovation was $4000. This bathroom will be a huge selling feature when we decide to flip our house. It will wow buyers and reduce selling time on the market.
