Even though the bathroom in her 1935 bungalow was only about 10′x6′, Better After reader Rachel managed to make it look twice as big by raising the light fixture and adding cabinets all the way to the ceiling.
What do you need all that space up there for anyway? Unless that’s where your kid’s invisible friend sleeps, there’s no excuse not to utilize it! Did you ever have an imaginary friend? I didn’t really, other than a cowboy named Nacho for very short period of time, but I did have this plastic dinosaur skeleton that came out of a quarter machine at the grocery store — so cheap that you couldn’t even tell what kind of dinosaur it was supposed to be —but wow, did I love that weird little thing. I slept with it under my pillow every night.
Aaanyway, back to this gorgeous bathroom makeover. Rachel even removed the windows and it still looks bigger! All the white really brightens it up, and the shower tile all the way to the ceiling draws the eye up too.
She insisted on a separate tub and shower. Why? I thought you’d never ask. She says, “Because I love to take a good bath and DON’T want to be sitting in my dear husband’s feet juice.” HA!!
