What They Did

1. To make room for a separate tub and shower, the 8-by-10-foot bathroom was widened 2 feet by claiming space from an adjoining hallway closet.
2. Removing the wall-to-wall vanity with double sinks allowed the rest of the fixtures to be reposi­tioned. The toilet and a large, period-style console sink now occupy what was the vanity wall.
3. A 4-foot-wide-by-7-foot-high cupboard was built into an existing alcove, providing even more storage than the old 10-foot vanity.
4. The combination tub/shower was replaced by a stall shower. The new tub sits across from it, where the old toilet had been.
