The primary bathroom in this Chapel Hill residence was very outdated and lacked functionality. The home was built in 1993 and the homeowners were tired of existing in a space that didn’t meet their needs. The bathroom had to be reconfigured to bring it into this century. It featured a small, corner stand-up shower and bulky, outdated bathtub. Dated cabinetry and flooring were no longer tolerable for the homeowners and the space needed an overhaul to meet their desire for more functional and energizing space

The bathroom had to be reconfigured because its features were not meeting the homeowners lifestyle needs. One major issue was the small, corner stand-up shower with low-end materials. It was closed off, dark and cramped. It coexisted with a bulky, outdated bathtub that took up way too much space in the floorplan for its lack of use. Dated cabinetry and flooring were no longer tolerable for the homeowners. The space needed to be reconfigured to meet the homeowners needs for more functional and energizing space. Space from a small studio home office was repurposed to create room for a more expansive primary bathroom.
