Bathroom Remodel

The "Jack and Jill" bathroom in this house was given a new operable skylight in 1989, but was not remodeled until recently (2007).
It features a bright day-lit space, an exposed brick chimney, a new shower, a dual flush water-conserving toilet, a new vanity and sink, tiled hydronic radiant heated floors and reworked original redwood woodwork - stripped of the old lead-based paint, sanded and hand rubbed with a natural Tung oil finish.

The original small, inward swinging casements bring in fresh air, and with their new wood casing treatment, give an intimate character to the room. The choice to expose the brick was "because it was there" and to provide an added color and textural interest to the room.
