Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe combined bathroom and bedroom was designed to be one big master suite, but the homeowners don't think it is so sweet.
Husband and wife Josh and Bryn Gillow spend a lot of time together. They are in love and are practically inseparable. But there is one place they would like to have a little more time alone –– the bathroom. That's impossible in their current master suite, which includes the bathroom and bedroom in one big room without any doors or dividers for privacy.

One of the worst things about not having a door is not being able to conceal the bathroom's dated ugliness. The homeowners find the carpet to be the most offensive thing in the room. It never seems to be completely dry, and there are some nasty stains around the toilet. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo have a design plan that will change this combination "bedathroom" into a separate bathroom and bedroom.
