    Emily, love the niche! Do you have any guidelines regarding the dimensions?

    Thank you, wonderful work.

    Thank you! I usually refer to the manufacturer's spec sheet on the appliances for minimum clearances required.

    If affixed, where did you find it?

    The shower curtain rod is affixed to the walls, and it is actually made from a closet rod that came from Lowe's. Thanks, Emily

    The washer and dryer are on a raised wood platform, but there is no drain or tray underneath them. Thanks, Emily

    I'm sorry I am not aware of a narrow shower with a walk-in soaking tub...

    This shower is 32"x32". I am not sure of the size of the shower curtain, but it seems like it would be pretty easy to cut down a standard sized shower curtain to fit. Thanks, Emily

    I don't believe that the water temperature of either is affected by their proximity.

    There is an exhaust fan (not visible in this photo) that removes the shower steam, as all bathrooms should have. As long as the dryer is also properly ventilated then there is no reason they should cause each other any problems.

    It is the original wood subfloor from the 1920s home, found under layers of linoleum and refinished.

    The compact washer and dryer are by GE. The washer dimensions are 23-1/2"W x 26-5/8"D x 33-3/8"H.

    The homeowners provided this but I believe it is the NORBO table from Ikea.

Next steps. First, determine whether you have a wood-plank subfloor. This is something a handy homeowner can do, or your contractor should be able to determine this for you. “Whoever is involved in the project is going to need to do some discovery,” Habel says. Set realistic expectations and have a plan B. “I wouldn’t let it drive the design from the beginning until you know what the condition of the underlying floor is,” Paprocki says. “Depending on the project, it can be a very nice option that saves money and has some character.” Just make sure that you have contingency money, Bellsmith adds. Not until you see everything exposed will you truly know if it is a realistic option and how much finishing the floor will cost.If you are able to complete this project, you’ll be left with a one-of-a-kind floor that celebrates your home’s history and should last for years to come.Related GuidesHow to Clean Your Hardwood FloorsSee more flooring guides on HouzzMore Resources on HouzzBrowse wood flooring materialsFind a general contractor near you

Replace a gnarly shower curtain. A simple clear liner from the hardware store will keep you from flinching every time the curtain touches you and will make the room feel bigger. After your stay, you can take it home to replace an old liner or to use as a drop cloth.

Multiple UnitsFor many busy families, having two laundry rooms makes sense. Padvaiskas sees many clients with large families keep small laundry machines near or in the kitchen for small loads and have a larger laundry room upstairs near the bedrooms or in the basement. “A lot of people wouldn’t think of it, but adding a second unit can actually be quite practical,” the designer says. That’s what the homeowners did with the powder bathroom shown here. These stackable units off the kitchen are used to keep on top of small loads, while larger units in the basement can tackle larger pieces like blankets and sheets. See more of this laundry room

AFTER: Fisher completely redesigned the space. Since they were gutting the rooms, moving the plumbing around wasn’t a problem. To keep the two windows, Fisher put the tall, vertical pieces — the shower and stacked appliances — on the short interior wall, replacing the broom closet. Then she moved the doorway over a few feet and even had to get crafty with the structure too. Inside the wall behind the shower and appliances, she turned the studs sideways to create a flat-frame construction to fit everything in. There were “some gymnastics that had to happen,” she says. A fold-up table from Ikea attached to the wall on the right creates a folding station when needed. Washer, dryer: GE; shower: Sterling

would it work if the washer and dryer were actually in the bathroom?
