Potential bath remodel


I currently have a very small bathroom with a clawfoot tub, toilet and vanity. It is next to an existing "bedroom"(term used loosely as this room has no closet).9'10"x11'3" I am thinking I should move the wall dividing them(not load bearing) to make the bathroom larger so I can use a standard tub/shower, install a larger vanity and make a small linen closet. My question is: Is this a good idea? The room would basically become an office 8'7'x11'3", making the house a two bedroom until the walk-up attic can be remodeled. Just looking for opinions on this....

Potential bath remodel


Bathrooms are enlarged all the time, usually at the expense of other living space. If that is your choice, go for it. Be very careful about removing/moving walls, they may or may not be load bearing, and often hide utilities, venting , etc.
