Bathroom Conundrum

Jan 2, 2013 - POSTED BY Anna Halloran - How To... , Property Search , Whats Hot

As you can see from the existing floor plans below, the layout meant you had to walk through the second bathroom to gain access to the roof terrace!  Not the most inviting way to usher guests on to your roof terrace for a candlelit dinner on a summer’s eve.   We will show you how we created two en suite bathrooms to serve the two bedrooms and opened up the area leading on to the roof terrace.

Original Layout (not to scale)


The guest room en suite was created by taking a section from the existing master en suite and a section from the guest bedroom.   The entrance to the guest bedroom was moved so that one walked in to the room through double doors centrally located.  On one side we created a cupboard and an the other what looks like a matching cupboard, but actually is the shower unit of the guest en suite.

Proposed Floorplan (not to scale)


We saved space by using sliding doors to enter both the bathrooms.  The doors are solid oak and look as if they will open out but instead slide into a mechanism in the stud wall.  When playing with tight square footage subtlety is key so as not to highlight the room’s weaknesses.
