Master closet/bathroom/shower project


In the process of demoing our closet/bathroom/shower that's directly connected to our master bedroom. The initial though process was to find a way to improve our closet, this quickly turned into a discussion of 'why don't we just move the wall and redo everything?'. This area has always been a black eye for our house since moving in. The whole area is small and layout changes are minimal. It'll basically be a gut of everything, build new wall, and rebuild out the space.


Current Floorplan (right) vs the new on the left. I'll be moving the wall (non load bearing) into the room approximately 14". It's 14" because that's all the room I have to work with given the entry of the room.

This view is from the hallway looking into the master bedroom entry. The door opening is now 48"" will be downsized to fit a standard 32" door.

The following pictures are what the spaces look like. These pictures are from our initial walk through when we bought the home.

The things I'm looking forward to removing:
--The 80's gold mirrored pocket doors
--The black toilet AND sink
--The cedar planking completely covering the closet walls
--The ~10" of wasted spaced that's firred out behind the shower
--The soffit above the vanity
--The vanity with slate tiled top

As of now I plan to do everything DIY with the exception of tape/mud/texture and carpeting in the master bdrm.

Re: Master closet/bathroom/shower project


These are the ideas I am originally planning on.

Easy/cheaper option on the top/left of a full wall in shower with a walk-in opening.
Preferred/better option on the bottom/right with a half wall and glass atop.


Second option would have a similar layout as this picture



This is my plan for the closet. 2 walls will have double layered rods with corner shelving with additional sleving against the other non-entry wall.


Something similar to this picture



Since I'll be removing the hideous golden mirrored pocket doors my plan would be for double 'barn' doors for the extra wide entry into the bathroom. Something similar to the below picture, but it'd be double doors

I had another plan drawn up that I didn't post originally but we're still considering.

I do think it'd greatly improve the layout and flow of the space but I did have a few concerns in doing so.
--The biggest issue is that it would require moving the toilet drain (slab foundation).
--Moving the water closet further out would take more space of the actual room.
--The jig/jag wall when entering the room may be weird and create an odd corner nook entry
--The 'hallway' nature entry into the bathroom
