Franklin, INTheir story:
"With the toilet, sink, and tub pushed into corners, we could have had a dance party in the middle of our bathroom. But in the raw 10-by-12-foot space we saw a chance to create charm, function, and luxury.
"My husband, Doug, a runner, wanted a soothing jetted tub, but I was all about a spacious shower with a rain-style head. The challenge was fitting in both without closing off the room’s windows and two doors, all cased in original millwork. It took careful calculating—we drew the fixtures’ outlines on the floor in marker before tearing it up—but we made it work.
