Here is our back entry "mudroom" (area for lack of a better word,) as we purchased the house 2 years ago. On the very left, in front of that beautiful "orange" formica topped bank of drawers, is the entry from the garage, which you cannot see. The sauna straight ahead. The heat source in our old house is radiant heat water filled radiators- cozy, but very hard to move. This will be the tricky part for the bathroom, that radiator. A door out to the patio on the right, and where the washer and dryer should be just beyond the utility sink. Isnt it just AWFUL, besides being very un-userfriendly. We never sauna, its full of boxes yet to be unpacked from our move. The door is going to get taken out and moved to the kitchen for easier access to the patio.
Sauna is gone, dear hubby found a nice spot for a window, which was covered up by the "sauna people" the radiator is in that wall to the right, perfect spot for it. Tub and shower is on the left of dear hubs and toilet just on the other side of the radiator wall. Looking good Daddy!!
Ta-da!! Although there are a few things we need to get finished, mostly the flooring and a nice linen closet (opposite the vanity, there) I am thrilled on how this little renovation has turned out.It has added a ton of re-sellability(as if Id ever move again) and I absolutely crave the nice natural light that comes in through the new window.
We added a little wall heater, for comfort. When we turn it on, which is rarely, it gives the most delightful warmth to that toilet! goodness sakes, luxurious, I feel like Ms Trump, heated toilet.- ha ha. I love that light flowing in- Pacific Northwesters can never have too much sunlight.
Here is the vanity I chose, Its kind of a large one, but it fits the space well- has lots of storage for tub toys, toilet paper, tooth brushes, towels ect. One project down(almost) and more in the wings. Next stop- the laundry-mudroom! Get your tools ready daddy- Ive got the plans in my head :)
