CASE STUDY: Master Bathroom Remodel
Signature Designs Kitchen & Bath
March 23, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am about to begin a project remodeling this bathroom for a client.
What do you think it is very small. Do you think we should invest in expanding it?

As a designer, I consider my role to maximise or expand every square inch I can for a client. However, how does this impact other rooms? Of course, the immediate answer is yes. But what are the consequences for other rooms, budget and design? Also, can you please post more photos. Thanks

What is the size of this room? Is it possible to change the position of the toilet and tub, removing the wall,etc?

How many other bathrooms are in the home (full and half)? Is it a guest, master, kids' bathroom? How many people does is need to serve? How long do your clients plan to stay in the home?

Sorry, just saw that you say it's a master bathroom. That said, in addition to the other questions--is there room to expand? What space would the client have to give up to expand?

Do they want to keep the tub? A shower only would give more space.

No we are thinking we should take the tub out. This the only bathroom on the top floor but the top floor is only the master anyway. Love all the input .....I will keep you updated with what we decide to do with this outdated bathroom.

Can you post an overall floor plan so we can evaluate the question in the greater context?

I would get rid of the tub and have a great shower instead.
