Help! Want to convert 1st floor coat closet into 1/2 bath- tough job?
July 7, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a design dilemma. Currently our 1/2 bath is tucked in a room behind the kitchen. Let me add that to get to the half bath (the only one on the 1st floor) you have to walk through the "laundry room." The laundry room really isn't a room and I also have no pantry. My idea is to have a proper laundry room where the 1/2 bath currently is, and add space for a walk in pantry. We have a large coat closet in our front hall closet that I think would be better utilized as a 1/2 bath. What do you think of this idea, and how expensive/tough/time consuming do you think it would be? We have plans to redo our basement next year - it currently has a drop ceiling that is in bad shape, so I have no problem running pluming, etc. if need be from basement. Thanks for advice!
