Apartment Therapy

Turning a bedroom into a bathroom sounds more like a brain teaser than a doable reno project. Drastically switching the purpose of a room is no easy feat, especially when you’re changing a space that once held a bed into one that can fit a functioning sink and toilet. Difficult, yes, but Jordan and Barry of The Brownstone Boys proved that it’s perfectly possible. Their 130-year-old brownstone came with plenty of space, but not enough bathrooms—so they adapted. “We don’t have a bathroom on the parlor floor and really didn’t want guests to go through our bedroom to use the bathroom. For us the dimensions of this bedroom seemed perfect for a bathroom with a window,” they say.
