Modern Farmhouse: Master Bath
This is the last post of the Modern Farmhouse series, for now. Our photoshoot focused primarily on the first floor, however, we were able to sneak in one pic of the master bath. As you can imagine, photoshoots while the family is living in the house can be intrusive, so we were super grateful to photograph the main floor. We hope to come back and shoot the second, third and backyard to share with you all. Till then, let’s take a look at the master bath. Since I only have one photo, I included a “before” shot so we can do a side by side comparison.
You may remember there was a giant non-working fireplace that went directly up the middle of this house. Not only did it bifurcate the kitchen downstairs, but it made the bathrooms on the 2nd floor super tight. It's hard to imagine, but both the kids and the master bath had were constrained on one side by a 3 foot deep brick fireplace. Taking the fireplace away gave us an extra 3 feet of bathroom space.
The master bath was super small and could only fit a single vanity. The toilet and jacuzzi tub were basically on top of each other. Removing the fireplace, allowed us to deepen the bathroom and create some breathing room. The right wall was shared by a long “closet,” that was basically a room built on top of the side porch roof. We allocated some of that space into the master bath but creating the little alcove. We had a custom vanity built to fit the nook perfectly, allowing for two sinks and plenty of storage. The jacuzzi tub became this gorgeously simple and super deep freestanding beauty with a floor mounted faucet. Lastly, a glass enclosed standing shower with a knee bench stands in the place where the fireplace used to be. All in all, I am thrilled with how this master bath turned out. I secretly want to sneak a soak in that tub!
