En-suite bathroom addition in Riverdale

We recently completed a project where we had to build a bathroom from scratch in place of old closet. This renovation project took place in Riverdale, one of the older neighborhoods of Toronto. Here is the before picture of the original closet.

One of the most challenging aspects of this project was to come up with the layout taking into consideration small space where we could build it.  Also, in order to get access to main plumbing vent stuck we had to remove adjacent family bathroom tub and tub surround. Since our client decided to partially renovate their family bathroom as well (the only bathroom on the second floor at the time) we went right at it. Here are some before pictures of the family bathroom.

With new bathroom construction we had to run all required drain and water plumbing for the shower, toilet and vanity; run all drain vents , install new bathroom exhaust fan vented outside on a separate switch, install new water proved shower pot light, built new separating wall between bedroom and bathroom; install new door on an angle to better maximize usable space, build the shower and shower recessed shelf, install new shower and vanity faucets, tile entire shower with white subway style ceramics, tile the floor with carrera marble mosaic tiles, install 40″ IKEA vanity and install bathroom  accessories and painted the entire space.

For the family bathroom we installed new acrylic bathtub, tiled bathtub area with white subway style tiles, installed white subway stile backsplash around vanity and also painted the entire space.

After 20 days of hard work we were able to complete new bathroom addition with all the cosmetics, partial family bathroom renovation and installation of build in IKEA wardrobe with sliding doors.  Here are the pictures of the finished spaces.

Here is the review that our client left for us after we completed this project:

“We hired Bowerbird to transform an old closet space in our master bedroom into a modern en suite. They also renovated our existing bathroom. The guys from Bowerbird were very professional throughout the project. We were very impressed by the vision they had to get the best use out of the space they were working with. The end result is very high quality and we are extremely happy with the way they transformed our master bedroom and main bathroom. Thanks Bowerbird!”
