Here is photographic proof of how we transformed a large closet under the main staircase into a functional half-bathroom.
We wanted to put in a full bath downstairs, but didn’t want to sacrifice living space or awkwardly configure a room. The closet ended up being the logical choice, although I do miss all that storage space.
We gutted the room down to the studs so that we could block access from the basement (mice!) and fully insulate. These walls did have blown in insulation. T also found some mice nests, mice skulls, and a rather large skeleton (we would rather not know from what)…
We added a window which lets in a lot of light, tiled the floor, installed baseboard heat, installed fixtures, finished walls, added a ceiling vent/light, etc. etc.
It only took us two years, but it is nice to finish a project and be satisfied with the results!
