What They Did
What was empty space at the center of the attic is now a 75-square-foot bath that feels light-filled despite its lack of windows.
1. The pocket door saves space by eliminating a door swing and eases traffic flow around the sink.
2. A tucked-away toilet is hidden from view until you enter the room, allowing the tub to be the focal point of the bath.
3. A plate rail along the 6-foot-high wainscoting allows for
a changing display of daughter Ella's artwork.
4. Built-in cubbies exploit a void behind the 4-foot tub. The colorful storage recesses keep the room open and airy, and toys and towels handy at bath time.
