Since my threshold-fixing dreams were dashed today I decided to do a little bit more in-depth research on our bathroom renovation plans for this summer. We're going to update the fixtures in the downstairs bathroom and redo the floor and do a pretty major reno on the upstairs (full) bathroom.
As you can see from the photo above, this may very well be the world's smallest half-bath. In fact, it's probably more like a quarter-bath. It measures, literally, 67"x 23" at its widest point. Yes, really. We figure this was once the coat closet that they bumped out into the kitchen to fit the toilet in. Well, given its smaller than small dimensions, finding new fixtures to fit this space has been anything but easy. While the toilet should be relatively easy to find a new sink that will fit is not. Everything I seem to find is just too wide (front to back). It looks like we may need to just the use the one that is there with an updated faucet but, as you can see below, the plumbing runs on the inside of the room. As there doesn't appear much hope in bringing in the wall to hide the plumbing (!) we're pretty much stuck with it as it is. My hope was to get a nice mini pedestal but seeing as that is not doable I was wondering about getting the plumbing re-chromed. Does anyone know if this is possible? Perhaps I wouldn't loathe it as much if it was prettier to look at. As it is now, it's kind of rusted and ugly (and a bit convoluted - while I don't know much about plumbing I wonder about the overly complicated piping under there...).
