Bathroom Remodel / January 14, 2019 / Amie Thibault

While they were remodeling, they borrowed some square footage from an adjacent closet to make the bathroom bigger. After. Now an antique pocket door opens up to a bigger bathroom with a herringbone-tiled floor and a vaulted ceiling. Designer and homeowner Eileen Deschapelles kept the bathroom’s basic layout mostly the same, but by raising the ceiling, she could install a larger, glass-walled shower and a skylight, making the bathroom brighter and more welcoming.
