Attic Master Bathroom Reveal

Attic Bathroom

This attic master bathroom reveal has been many years coming! I am beyond thrilled to be typing this and finally share the finished design of what has been in our heads for 3 years. It came together so beautifully and is exactly what we needed from the space.

This space is connected to our master bedroom and we believe that this room was used as a sort of tiny apartment at some point many years ago. The room had a kitchen sink and cabinets, no closet, and a bathroom that if you didn’t know to look, you would miss it (not even exaggerating). Amazingly they fit a toilet, tiny sink, and shower (that could only be used by a very short person as the shower head was only 5.5 feet off the ground) into a 3 foot by 6 foot space.

We put a 60 inch double vanity in the space that used to occupy the entire bathroom. This vanity is from Wayfair (for a fantastic price on sale) and we ultimately decided the original grey color didn’t go well with our plans so we painted the cabinet and hardware.

One of my favorite changes is the exposed brick from the old chimney. We removed the plaster that was covering it and sanded down the brick with a palm sander. We also made the door a pocket door (with this soft open and close mechanism) to maximize every inch of this attic bathroom.

The space for our toilet and shower was determined by the position of the windows. We wished we could have made the shower space a bit bigger and the toilet space a bit smaller, but this is the way it worked out and we are happy with the result.

On the other side of the room we fit a small walk in closest with built in cube type shelving along one of the walls and a built in shoe rack. The shoe rack is actually the only thing we kept from the original space. I did not photograph the closet because the space is so tiny my camera (my phone) could not get a clear picture of the inside of the closet. But we definitely maximized every square inch of that little closet and it works so well for us.

We saved at least 50% by doing this attic bathroom and bedroom project ourselves (although we did hire out a few jobs like the plumbing and electrical) and spent around $12K on the total project (bedroom and bathroom renovation).
