Master Bedroom and Ensuite Makeover

DSC_0540 (1).jpg

The ensuite bathroom was outdated and the doorway was using too much floor space, only one sink and very little storage space.

The closed in shower had poor lighting and ventilation. The shower door swung out into floor space shared with the single vanity.

The bedroom had limited closet space but also had large unused space along wall opposite bed 


Remove the closet and move bathroom entry to where the closet had been. Install floor to ceiling closet cabinets along empty wall in bedroom with drawer unit in the middle to park the TV. By moving the door way the space in the ensuite was freed up to allow a double vanity which was made by converting an antique buffet. An all glass shower unit was installed to allow a more spacious feel as well as more light and ventilation to the shower. In floor heating was added under wood like floor tile and wide ship lap panelling added to two connecting walls around vanity.

Ensuite AFTER

Although the floor space remained the same the bathroom feels twice as big and has lots of storage in the converted buffet. The sliding door on shower unit as well as barn door style to bathroom allows for freer  movement and maximizes the floor space. The horizontal lines of the ship lap make the room feel wider as well as add to the farmhouse style. Floor to ceiling tiles in the shower give a virtual lift to the ceiling as well.

AFTER reno

Teresa guided us through this home renovation. She understood the vision I had and ensured the products and colours chosen were good quality, complementary and economical. Teresa was a calm and professional voice when the reno felt stressful. She was a hands-on designer who completed some of the project herself. I highly recommend Teresa and LOVE my new bathroom/master bedroom!
