Bathroom Reborn

How one bathroom was transformed from a dark afterthought to a bright, smart space, without changing the footprint

The bathroom adjacent to the kitchen in Rick's home had several serious problems: The toilet and bathtub were right in front of the door, the linen closet could only be accessed by squeezing through the space between the vanity and the tub, the only window was hidden in the linen closet, and there was no entry from the kitchen. Big changes resulted after Rick hired builder Dave Mulder. Mulder moved the door from the living room side to the kitchen side, built a shower in place of the linen closet, replaced the old window with a smaller unit higher up the wall for privacy, added a skylight above the vanity, and built new bamboo-plywood cabinets.
