Bigger is Better

The only way to give the owner of this 1930s-era home the larger bathroom and separate shower of her dreams was to take down the wall to an adjoining bedroom and annex part of it for the new bathroom. To retain the vintage style the homeowner wanted, I used traditional black and white tiles for floors and walls, along with classic fixtures and a fresh paint colour. The added bonus – the remaining part of the old bedroom was transformed into a generous walk-in closet. “MaryLynne did a wonderful job of understanding my vision,” the homeowner enthused, “transforming the old while providing some great ideas like the vanity table. And the new closet gives me storage I never dreamed of!”
