Being the only bathroom in this 1930s home it was time for some functional updates. For a more accessible option the original claw foot bathtub was replaced with a walk in shower. The operable window located within the bathing area required its own shower curtain and proved to be a nuisance for cleaning. Therefore, the window was replaced with a glass block window. Also, having had a slow leak from the toilet the flooring was replaced. With all of these functional updates the entire bathroom project ended up being a complete gut to studs. With this, all finishes and plumbing fixtures were replaced. While achieving a cosmetic update was not the driving force behind the decision to remodel, having to replace the finishes did provide a very nice makeover. Overall, the homeowners classic style and appreciation for quality resulted in a beautiful new bathroom which is now more functional and more beautiful.
