In addition to bathroom remodels, we also receive requests to add bathrooms to homes. If this is what you’d like, Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths can examine your floor plan and develop custom remodeling ideas. We can find unused space, or a way to use space more efficiently in order to add a bathroom.
Where do we find the space for another bathroom? Find out below.
When assessing a home for additional bathroom space, we don’t want to ignore the basement, often the largest open space in the house.
A basement can be convenient because it allows our craftsmen to cause the least possible disruption to your household. Also, there is always at least one waste stack coming down to the basement through the first floor.
Many row homes in the Washington, D.C. and elsewhere in the metropolitan area have hall bathrooms that are large enough to be split into two smaller bathrooms.
In a recent DC bathroom remodel we worked on a long, thin (14′ by 4’6) bathroom space in which the bathtub, toilet and vanity all lined up length-wise on the one wall. We gutted the bathroom and re-framed it, widening the space by seven inches and lengthening it by five inches, resulting in a space of 14’5″ by 5’1″. We then split this space with a partition wall, creating two 5′ by 7′ bathrooms with enough space for both toilets and bathtubs.
The client had his home re-appraised after the work was done. Since the home now had 2 ½ baths instead of 1 ½, the value had increased significantly. Even if your home doesn’t have a long, thin bathroom to remodel, we have more ways to create bathroom space. A number of ways to create the space that you seek.
Sometimes builders devote an overly-generous amount of space to a single room, such as the master bedroom or family room. You can salvage the corners of these rooms for extra bathrooms.
Also, like a bathroom remodel we worked on in Silver Spring, MD, many large master bedrooms connect to half-pint-sized bathrooms. The master bathroom had a claustrophobia-inducing shower so naturally the homeowners wanted a larger bathroom. We were able create it by putting wasted master-bedroom space to practical use.
If you’d like an extra bathroom, or bathroom remodel, come to our showroom to discuss bathroom remodeling ideas with one of our kitchen designers.
Each of our designers have had specialized training in Kitchen Design through NKBA, SEN or ASID, not only in style and structure, but in function and arrangement as well. Unlike many Kitchen and Bath companies, we are not a retail store. We are a design, build, and remodeling company, a licensed contractor in Maryland, The District of Columbia and Virginia. So whether you live in DC, Bethesda, Potomac, Olney, Silver Spring, Woodley Park, Adams Morgan, Capitol Hill or anywhere else in the region, Signature KAB can design a Great kitchen, addition, or bath for your home. Not only that, but we can also develop permit-able drawings, process the plans to permit, move the walls, floors and ceilings, install lighting, plumbing, tile, and floor. We can even build the house for you if you would like! So give us a call at: 301.830.8582. You can also email the owner, Gary Case, at Gcase@signaturekab.com.
