I’m excited to share Better After reader Imke’s bathroom makeover with you today, because I’ve never seen anything quite like it! Imke lives in Berlin, and bought an apartment to rent out in a building dating back to 1903. Back then, no one had the luxury of a private bath; each floor shared a bathroom that was located in the stairway between floors. YIKES. I can’t even imagine. I can, but I don’t want to.
So, Imke had only the tiniest of tiny spaces to work with in what she calls her ‘tube’ bathroom. It was a only 35 inches (INCHES!!) wide, and split into separate rooms. The shower was entered directly from the kitchen, and the restroom from the hallway.
Imke tore everything out and made one (still tiny) room, with the shower in the back. The electricity had to be redone, as it was formerly just nailed right on the wall. She beautified it with mosaic tile on the walls and a fabulous Italian black tile on the floor. I think she did a stellar job. Thanks for sharing Imke!
