This century-old Northeast Minneapolis home had an existing second floor bathroom; that alone was a little uncommon. However, it was not functional when the home-owner acquired it. Water was leaking through the kitchen ceiling after just the first few uses.
Though constrained, we were able to reallocate the distribution of the fixtures in the room and relocate the door from the hallway. Though these were small adjustments they enabled the relatively large space of this existing bathroom to be used more effectively.
The use of high-end fixtures such as the wall-mounted toilet and the furniture-like vanity lends a light, airy quality to the finished space and adds to the luxurious feeling of the room. Additionally, the deep soaker tub provides additional functionality to the bathroom beyond that which was possible with original tub.
Additional features that add to the luxurious feel of this room include the generous recessed lighting and in-mirror sconce lighting, consistent use of polished stainless steel fixtures and in-floor radiant heat; a virtual necessity for an older home especially in the winter and given the diminutive size of this bathroom, a relatively inexpensive indulgence.
