What They Did
The location of the sinks, tub, and toilet didn't change, but the 8-by-10-foot room was gutted for new heating, fixtures, cabinets, and tile.
1. Put in a tile 'rug' to give the jagged perimeter of the room a neat, unifying focal point.
2. Optimized counter space on the wife's vanity by stretching the granite from wall to wall for a 5-foot-long sink deck.
3. Added storage by tucking a 7-foot-tall linen cupboard in a corner. A 4-foot-long makeup counter also makes use of space under the window and over the radiator.
