To make the bathroom slightly larger, the existing stair from the living area to the sleeping loft was removed, and a new landing was constructed, allowing the stair to be closer to the living room and adding 18 inches to the size of the bathroom.


This small bathroom features floor-to-ceiling white tiles, while the mirror reflects the brick on the wall in the bedroom.
