The bath/laundry room in our lower level was the color of Kraft macaroni and cheese when we moved in. With the cheese came a free standing round telephone booth (remember telephone booths?) as a shower. It was all rather hideous. I wish I had a before photo of the bathroom before demolition, but it was just too ugly to shoot (or that’s my justification for forgetting to take a ‘before’ shot).
Here it is with the walls removed.
Getting there. The water meter, washer and dryer are enclosed in the walled off are to the right.
Determining what to put under the laundry shoot to catch the clothes was proving to be a challenge. Not only did we not want an ugly laundry basket sitting out, the space is also quite tight. I determined that a Modesto planter was the perfect solution. Sculpture-like, colorful AND practical. Incidentally, it came with a false bottom (who would want to fill that entire planter with dirt?!) so I had to get out a saw (there is always a way!) to open up the space.
A glass block wall serves as the privacy divider between the bathroom and adjacent walk in closet. It is also in keeping with MCM design and mimics one other glass block wall in our house. You know, need to repeat the elements for continuity and flow.
