When we bought our house, the first floor had only one full bathroom. The entrance to the bathroom was right next to the master. We decided to add a 1/2 bath in a closet area, close the original bathroom door from the hallway, and add a new entry to the bath from our master bedroom.

Here is how the bathroom looked before the renovations. I did like the tiles but the room was just not functional enough for us. Below the original entrance to the bath (this pics shows the master bedroom only though…)

Here some impressions during the renovations. The new, arched doorway.

The bathroom down to its studs. Here the view of the original entry.


We decided to add a shower, and a bathtub in the master bath. Below the pic adding the shower base


Bathtub section – see the arches at the top?


And here are the after pictures. We found German wall tiles, Italian floor tiles, and the shower/vanity are also some European brand :): I am SO done choosing tiles!
