Master Bath Remodeling Ideas


Please see my attached file which is a drawing of our master bedroom. We have an open plan in which the master bathroom is right inside of the bedroom without a door and only a 3/4 wall separating it from the bedroom. I'm not sure how we can add a wall with a door because we have a long window that would be in the way of us putting a wall with a door straight across from the end of the 6.5' 3/4 height wall. Ideas?

Not sure if I can properly explain my suggestion. You can extend the half wall to the ceiling to close that off. Next to the sink, you can extend a wall toward the window. IF the window has room above it, you could frame a 2-sided opening at the end of the new wall and just leave it open (no door). While not totally private, it's way better then it is currently.

Here are 2 pics to try to explain myself

That seems like one heck of a solution, albeit not 100% private.

I think Angus has a good plan for what details are given, but it would help if more detailed (dimensions and distances) were given. For example, at first glance, another option might be to continue the wall (full height) along the vanity, add a door there, with a sitting/changing area to the left of the window?

Excellent solution, angus. And there's no reason I can see why they couldn't hang a bi-fold in the new opening for a little more privacy.

Working off the other ideas shared, you could do something like this too. I just didn't want to take too much out of the actual bedroom. Of course you totally lose the window to the bathroom.
