After, master bath

Jeff and Lisa Proctor love their cozy beach cottage, but they have only one bathroom, located off the master bedroom. With two children and a hectic schedule, these accommodations are a nuisance at best, and when guests visit, forget about it. Jeff and Lisa need more space, and they need help creating it. The couple hopes that one of three designers can solve their special dilemma and create a bathroom more suitable for a growing family.

Before, guest bath
After, guest bath

Three strong plans make this a tough decision for the Proctors, but they finally decide on Janie Bowers' Cape Cod design. Raising the ceiling and relocating the old closet to the master bathroom allowed for the addition of a powder room. A new shower, toilet and a large window help draw in the natural light and maximize the space, and the old counters have been replaced by a dual sink built-in with an aged distressed finish. Dual mirrors, sconces and a large tub complete the room while the whole space is enhanced by colorful blue, green and grey tiles. French doors leading into the bedroom lend a touch of elegance and greatly define this master suite.
