The bathroom is our focus for the next few weeks - we have to get it into living shape to move in! If we could reconfigure the bathroom ideally, I think it would be like this:
Things I love about this design:
- Big shower with glass so you can easily steam
- Window ledge for plants or 900 bottles of conditioner
- Extended vanity with enough space to put cosmetics / candle / life
- Medicine cabinet storage to keep things away
- Wide marble tile on wall in the shower
I love a nice big shower stall with a super useful shelf. However, we have been told by multiple people that stripping out a bathtub is a huge mistake (for re-sale value). Eventually we want to put in a master bath with a shower, so we should probably keep the bathtub in.
And, if we keep the bathtub in, we will probably keep that cast iron beast in there to save money and preserve the heritage of the house. But, we have to make the bathtub (and the whole bathroom) more functional!
OK, this one is not so bad. I love the tile and the weird shelf is helpful, but where is the shower curtain?
This looks like a bathroom only used for soaking with a book while gazing at the Eiffel Tower. Super great for Paris, not so great for us!
This one is slightly more practical - it has a shower curtain - but one that takes up a huge amount of the tub space.
On a different note - I love the bold tile on the floor and the simple tile on the walls - super gorgeous and fun for a small space. I think it's a lot of look for us, but still really beautiful.
I like this one because of the super useful lip - but again no shower curtain?
How do people shower?
But here is my dream bathroom for that space:
Things I LOVE about this:
- Glass framing so no shower curtain
- Seat / ledge for extra space built right in
- Window ledge for a plant
- Super clean look even though it has a bathtub
- Good placement with the toilet so the room feels bigger than it is
- Build in shelf for shampoo
- Subway tile surround is clean and simple
We'll see! I don't know what we're going to do with that clawfoot tub...
