A Librarian’s Bathroom

Is it a bathroom? Is it a library? It’s both! It is a librarian’s bathroom. Actually, two librarians. My husband’s niece and her husband just finished adding a master bath in their craftsman home in Portland.  It is quite spectacular. Almost everything in it is custom-made for the space. The flooring and fireplace mantel were both milled from the houses original framing that was removed for the remodel. Just look at this light-filled space!a librarian's bathroomThe room has two skylights, french doors and a stained glass window. It is the definition of a light filled room. The stained glass window lives over the tub.stained glass window

Are you ready for more? You are not going to believe what one gets to gaze upon while reclining in a bubble bath.electric fireplace across from the bathtub

With the flip of a switch a crackling fire appears for your bathtime enjoyment. A little surprise is hiding behind the art….artwork hides bathroom cabinet

I know. Amazing. I am not done. Let’s have a look at the bathroom sinks, shall we?library-bathroom-sink-cabinetry

Jim and Juliet’s contractor repurposed an antique asian cabinet into a sink base. He also adjusted the doors so they can be opened with a simple push. The mirror is so great.vintage mirror used over bathroom sinksschoolhouse electric lighting

The shower is roomy with a skylight to brighten your morning. It has a bench seat and a cubby for storage.

One more treat for you. French doors leading to a balcony that is large enough for table and chairs. balcony off the bathroombathroom balcony

They repurposed vintage windows along each side for more light. Here is one side:side-light-vintage-window-in-balcony

Juliet chose a built-in tub because her cats keep her company as she bathes. They couldn’t perch very easily on a free-standing tub. Loretta the cat very kindly demonstrated. kitty-takes-a-bath
