Our Rancher: Before & After - The Guest/Hall Bath.

This before and after is a little tough to illustrate.  Our former hall/guest bath was tight.  The doorway was narrow...the vanity was too big for the space.  It was from the 1950's and not comfortable to use.

Our master bath was even worse.  It was also original to the house, much smaller, had a sink too small to ever wash your face in, the shower was leaking...and, well, I'm pretty sure you could be sitting on the toilet AND washing your hands at the same time.

So yay for having two bathrooms (we previously only had one), but booooooooo that neither worked for us.  Thankfully, they backed up to each other, and were right next to a master bedroom closet.

Here is the floorplan before:

(1) – Stairs to the Basement
(2) – Hallway Coat Closet
(3) – Linen Closet #1
(4) – Linen Closet #2
(5) – Main Bath
(6) – Master Bath
(7) – Bedroom #1 Closet
(8) – Bedroom #2 Closet
(9) – Bedroom #3 Closet
(10) – Master Bedroom Closet #1
(11) – Master Bedroom Closet #2

And here is it is after we combined the two bathrooms and stole a little bit of master bedroom closet #1:

(8) – My Closet (Master Bedroom Closet #1)
(9) – Hubby’s Closet (Master Bedroom Closet #2)
(10) – Master Bathroom
(11) – Master Bedroom Closet #3

Hopefully those explanations and floor plans can help you visualize the transformation below.  And considering our renovations were done on a tight budget, I think this bath turned out great!!

Bye-bye 1950's....










I love how spacious this bathroom is now!

  2. Wow! I love how that turned out. I've been wanting to redo all of my bathrooms and I might copy your idea. I really love the colors you used. The tan stripes are so cool. How long did this renovation end up taking you? I guess it's summer, so I definitely have a bit of extra time on my hands.

    1. Thank you, Megan! The major renovation of our main floor took 3-4 months.
