Bathroom Renovation At The Westview House

So, I'm jumping around, and this post also has nothing to do with any work I've been doing, but instead more documenting the house I bought and the renovations I'm doing.

I showed you guys the weird bathroom: 



The back part, where the tub is, used to be part of the patio. The current laundry room is also part of the converted patio. So, since the tub area was over concrete (patio) the guy who owned the house before me, wanted to put a tub there without having to drill through (what I learned was 8"thick) concrete. So, he LIFTED the tub on top of the concrete, and in order for it to go there, it had to be raised. hence the hilarious stairs. It has been really funny taking showers in there. You have to walk UP, then step back down. It's actually pretty dangerous, but at least I have a handrail. haha! It's all pretty awful, and the tan travertine tile just isn't my thing. Neither is the vanity. 


SO! DEMO!

Here is what it looks like now:



I decided to move the door over to the right. It used to be on the left of where it is in this photo. Can you see? I did this in order to have a larger vanity. I could've only gotten a 40" one before, if I'd done the vanity to the right when you walk in, but now I can get a 48" one, and a better view, in my opinion.

So this is what the old floor plan looked like:




And this is the new floor plan (except the linen closet and toilet are not that far away from each other. Probably only like 3'):


And a very quick sketch of elevations I drew really quick for you guys. I know some people aren't visual, so my words may not make sense. Hopefully this helps.



I'm getting way more storage, and I feel like this floor plan makes a whole lot more sense than the old one did. They were trying to cut corners by not drilling through that concrete, which I guess makes sense, but in the long run, just drill through the concrete - it's worth the couple hundred extra dollars! Especially when you probably spent that building the lovely staircase ;)

After we started gutting it, the contractor told me that there were not one but TWO layers of tile on the floor, and that the porch floor was 8" thick, so not fun at all to drill through. Poor guy. But they did a great job. Tomorrow the rough ins for plumbing happens.

I selected this faucet:



I bought it in polished nickel. I have used it a lot in brushed brass and I do love that look, but decided that this one was probably better for a fickle designer like me :) I can do brass pulls on the vanity to get my brass fix. And I do love polished nickel. 



I plan to change out the hardware to something brass. 


Today, I selected tile. I'm going to go with this one (which I have loved and used a lot for clients, too):




Here it is in the space. I have also marked out the tub and vanity here! Initially, it was going to be a regular wall, to the ceiling where that 2x4 is. But, last night after the contractor left, I had an epiphany which is to do a pony wall there instead, then do glass shower doors on the front and side, to let all that pretty light filter in to the rest of the room. Call me crazy, but I do love a shower curtain and I wanted to do that in here. However, practicality is going to win out so that we can get some sparkle and light in this bathroom. And yes I know glass shower doors are nice and pretty, too :)


Glorious shot of the tub! ha. I do like it though, because it's squared off and not round.




Going to go with this cheap classic in the tub. 


I guess that's it for now... standby! I will post more. Also, feel free to follow along for more progress and also some Insta-stories at my Instagram handle, @kfddesigns.

  3. I'm following! I've always wondered...how is the window & trim dealt with in a wet area?
    I can assume the window is vinyl but what do you use for molding around the window?

  8. Great job on the remodel of the bathroom. I wish you would not have put the shower at the window. You are going to lose a lot of natural light. Plus, I like the look of plantation shutters on windows.

  9. @shenandoah Shutters - the window will remain in the bathroom. it will be in the shower! there will be glass walls, so there is just as much light as there was before. :) no need for shutters, as it is a frosted glass.

  25. First, Pakar SEO write for humans. It’s not robots that you care about getting to your website and influencing, Pakar SEO Jakarta it’s people. So, you have to write for them. That means, you write like you talk to people and you write about what people want to know. If someone in real life were to ask you a question, you would answer it right? Well, on the internet, it’s the same deal. So, write down the questions people might have, and then answer them.

    I’ve seen this work over and over for businesses. For example, Marcus Sheridon Pakar SEO Jakarta built his fiberglass pool company using SEO and inbound marketing. His company went from being just another local pool company to the #1 website on the internet for fiberglass pools. He did it by simply answering customer questions on the company website Nasional.

    He has made millions of dollars in sales from the leads his website generates. It all starts with the simple idea “they ask, you answer”. Jakarta Pakar SEO Jakarta If a customer asks a question, Pakar SEO Jakarta he writes it down and creates a page on his website to answer that question Indonesia .
