Already looks a hundred times better and bigger!

Also, I have stripped wallpaper before ( I swear it was put on with SuperGlue....). Doesn't seem extreme at all  Tongue

Thanks! It's amazing how much bigger the room is once they cleared out a few things. Little things like the tub, the vanity, the closet, the walls.... Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy

I just realized I forgot to post a finished view  Grin  Grin

The beige door on the right is now a pocket door (that needs to be painted white)
The center door is the original door to the hallway
The wooden cabinet replaced the linen closet

The vanity counter is the white line about 1/2 down the wooden cabinet on the left. The vanity matches the cabinet.

The walls are now a white textured tile. It's amazing how much BRIGHTER the bathroom is with white walls and a light fixture that doesn't reflect back as gold. We'd been talking about putting in a window to let in natural light since it was so poorly lit, but that's not a problem any more!  Grin   Grin

Your door dilemma reminds me of my own house. However, when we moved in the junkies before us removed all the doors and painted on them and displayed the paintings outside in the yard. Hanging from a tree.

SO w ejust decided to leave the doors off, remove the hinges, sand and repaint everything and then install tension rods and put curtains up instead.

You're just closer to me when you fall.

You've to change the plywood and replace it with new waterproof one. Or get plastic door done.

I believe you have to eliminate two dors the right and left one and make arches instead. you can cover these arches with curtains of beautiful textile. And in the middle you need to chage the door for something like a silver one that will make an illusion of more light and space, i.e. milanodoors white laminate model.

Are you able to rehang the door to the hall to swing out? I was going to suggest tearing out the closet. I like the wadrobe. Consider putting up a  wood shelf(s)on the wall  to the bedroom with either an under hung bar or some hooks for towels and / or robes / p.j.s. You could also add a good size mirror to that wall.

no, the hallway's not wide enough for the door to swing into the hall & still have enough clearance to walk by comfortably
