Before – this is the wall where the entrance to the old bath was.
On the opposite wall, see where that door is in the picture below?
That used to be where a window was, the very window you see on the left. I don’t know how they moved it and I’m rather glad I didn’t see them do it, but I like the end result. The room would have been dark without a second window – the new window location balances the room and it looks like it has always been there.
Having given one of the master bedroom closets to a different bedroom (see before and after floor plans), the master bedroom would need closet space added. With a new master bath being added on to the house, we simply extended the addition a few feet and created one larger master closet keeping (but widening) the original door and adding another from the bathroom. The three doors in that corner (two to closet and one from bedroom to bathroom are all extra-wide pocket doors.
Before closets (two separate):
After -the finished closet with custom rods and shelving:
We have since added two shelves to the middle portion to provide more space for shoes.
Knowing traditional pocket door hardware would be something I’d eventually struggle with because of finger/hand dexterity, I searched for an alternative. The handles were pricey, but are easy to use and worth the cost. http://www.trimcobbw.com/door-hardware/products/door-pulls-and-grips/1069.asp
The squares on the face of the pull are small foam pads toeliminate noise when closing the doors.
There are three ceiling lights in the closet and a small window.
