remodeling thoughts

stpaulrudyAugust 20, 2011

On the main level of my house I am brainstorming ideas on how to add a 3/4 bathroom (currently at 1/2 bath) and a guest bedroom.

My dilemma is the current bathroom is right in the middle of the house between the kitchen and living room. I can't think of a better place to move the bathroom.

If I proceed with my floorplan:

- The living room fireplace will be off-center.

- There will be a quasi-empty/narrow hallway between the kitchen and living room. I know an open floor plan is more desirable.

- The new entrance to the bathroom will be in the back of the house but adjacent to the bedroom.

Below is the floor plan I just created. The changes include the bathroom + a larger closet and losing about 3-ft out of the living room. Thoughts/Opinions? (the old bathroom is floating in the diagram to the lower left.

Thank you
