How do you manage with tiny closets & baths?
We are working on buying a charming older home and thinking about it 24/7! Right now, we live in a fairly large 3,300 sq. foot house (newly built in 2008). Master bath is a nice size, and we have him & her closets, my closet is a large walk-in size, lots of extra empty space!
Our kitchen is a nice size with an island and eating area. It's a nice house, but the developer went bankrupted, new builder building, and our investment is gone. PLUS, although I'm grateful for our home, and know I'm blessed, it doesn't feel like "home". My true love has always been older homes, and we have lived in a few real fixer-uppers in our younger days (I'm only 49 - so not that old!)however, they were all much larger in size than the bungalow home we are buying.
So, the house we are looking at is darling, has a small kitchen, and I'm perfectly fine with that. The master bedroom and bath are fine too, what I'm wondering is how we will manage with such small closets, and the other 3 baths are standing room only. No room for vanities, they all have pedestal sinks. Looking at the floor plan, we could move walls, and a few doors here and there and make a couple areas larger (master closet and one bath).
So my question is, if you all leave it "as is" and learn to adapt to the space, or have you moved walls and enlarged your space?
