Small Master Bath Remodeling in Hyde Park

The client did not think the existing space was efficient and really disliked old look. We wanted to expand the bathroom area and allow space for a couple to use since it was technically a master bathroom but was so small. We wanted it to feel like a master bath, so we minimized the wasted open space, while still allowing for closet space and expanding the shower, and allowing for a double vanity. We also replaced the door with a stylish barn door.
