Enlarged ... without adding an inch.

Enlarged . . . without adding an inch

This plain-Jane bathroom was modified by Fresno architect Jack Schutt for his teen-age daughter without adding an inch. Adobe walls and radiant heating pipes made it prohibitively expensive to move fixtures or expand.

The shower stall was doubled in size, but its clear glass doors and off-white half-walls make the room seem larger rather than smaller. A vanity expands counter space and houses a new clothes hamper, but its stepped-back end allows room for the shower door to swing open.

Above the vanity, glass shelves and vertical banks of lights were mounted directly through a room-doubling mirror.

Cost of the makeover: about $3,000.
