I had always been a bit sheepish about the bathroom in the cottage. It was small, dark. No counter space. Tiny fiberglass shower. Definitely less-nice than the rest of the cottage. So this winter I splurged and totally remodeled it. Now it seems much bigger and nicer. (if you want to enlarge one of the photos, just click on it.)
In addition to a new “Solatube” – skylight – the bathroom now miraculously features a spacious tile countertop, lovely custom vanity cabinet, bigger shower with tile to the ceiling, a glamorous heavy glass door, and a tile floor. And best of all, a charming tile accent strip that looks like beach pebbles!
There is also now a second wardrobe closet. I’m hoping to morph the cottage into longer stays, and the storage was inadequate before. Now, between the added closet, 2 new cabinet pieces in the living area, and a “Captain’s Bed” with 12 spacious drawers beneath – guests can comfortably stay longer than a month!
Something else new: solar panels on the roof. Hopefully, come sunnier weather, they will produce lots of clean energy to shrink my carbon footprint even more.
