A New Bathroom

new bathroom How do you provide the modern facilities of a master bath in the small space alloted to bathrooms in older houses? The owners wanted a convenient shower (hiding behind the picture of a basket) rather than a tub. Plumbing included aerators to minimize water flow in both showers and sink. Of course the shower head was designed to conserve water.

Two old fashioned small sinks can fit along the wall in the narrow space available. The cherry wood floor is recycled wood. sinks
toilet The privacy half-wall with old fashioned wainscotting works well to separate the small tank toilet from the rest of the room. This wainscotting, popular years ago, is now "in" again.
