These children’s bedrooms both had some major changes. We ‘borrowed’ square space from other rooms to bring the rooms up to what the market is demanding in 2018.
The oldest son’s room had an attached bathroom but it was an incredibly strange layout. We decided to give up the near by laundry room to make a larger attached bathroom and walk in closet. In turn we gave up the closet in the bedroom for more square footage in the bedroom.
I think the pictures will make it easier to understand.
In the above photo where you see the headboard is where the son’s desk was placed. Where the window is to the right in the photo is where the colorful striped occasional chair was placed.
The above picture shows the closet that we removed and that is where the double bed was placed. It truly made a huge difference to gain that real-estate.
Now for the after shots. It’s always so much to see the before and after shots.
An attached bathroom is nearly a must in all new homes in California. Is it that way in other parts of the United States.
Here is the before of the attached bathroom. You will notice that the vanity is underneath the window and is on the immediate left when you enter.
We moved the vanity to be directly in front of you when you enter, with the toilet being to it’s right and then designed a stand up shower and did not include a tub. Just beyond the shower was the new walk in closet.
This worked out to be the perfect bathroom for a pre-teen boy.
Now onto the youngest son’s bedroom where there was no attached bathroom. We remodeled a H U G E hallway bathroom to be entered from this son’s bedroom and then divided that bathroom into two rooms. The other half of that old bathroom became the new very large laundry room. Mission accomplished!
This little guy was so darn cute when we asked what his wishes were for his bedroom. Simple he said, please make it Orange. Easy peasy.
Children’s bedrooms should be bright, fun A N D functional. To much of a theme and you’ll be remodeling every six months.
Ta-Dah, here is the after of this lucky little boy’s bedroom and new (never existed before) bathroom. These two children’s bedrooms were just fun to work with.
To the left of that desk is where you would follow that wall to head into the new bathroom.
This brings us to the end of the two children’s bedrooms and also to the end of this entire home make over. What are your thoughts? Did you have a favorite room? I would love to have your in-put.
Here are the links to the other rooms ‘Before and After’ pictures.
Now, onto our next remodel. A large four bedroom home of a bachelor living in North San Diego. Stay tuned for photos.
