Welcome to my Master Bathroom!
I pointed out in a previous post about our new home, that this bathroom was almost a deal breaker on buying this house. It is a bowling alley nightmare! I also knew right away that any type of solution was beyond just a little paint.
Check out the space capsule shower straight out of 1991….I feel like for 1991 this was still a serious crime the day it was done!
I’m kinda a shrimp of a girl and I’m totally claustrophobic in this shower! So thankful for my 20/400 vision so I don’t have to really “see” the nasty stained fiberglass. Hello curves that won’t let any bottles rest upright on them!
This bath tub is another crime! 57″! Dang…that is a hard space to replace with anything stylish or worthy of “sitting” in.
It is currently serving as the place in which I bathe the dogs!
We’ve tossed around many different scenarios in making this bathroom more functional and enjoyable, yet still not spending every last penny we have to remodel the house with. We considered moving plumbing, primarily the toilet, either into the linen closet space, which then required us to move the entire entrance into the bathroom. We also considered moving it to where the bathtub currently is. We even considered doing something like this….
…where we kept the bath tub in a large shower area at the end of the bathroom. But, then the quest for a bath tub small enough to fit in 57″ began. By the time we added up the expense of the bath tub and fixtures our budget was BLOWN!
My fabulous friend, and Interior Designer (who knows me really well since she did spend 11 years right across the street from me!) Julie Jersey, of Julie Jersey Designs, pointed out that I DON’T TAKE BATHS! Yep, this total ADD girl, (me!) cannot sit still long enough to even enjoy a bath!
Problem solved….back on budget…we are nixing a bath tub, and going for a HUGE double shower (using the entire space where the bathtub and shower currently are!) with 2 shower heads!
That also means we are leaving the toilet where it is…but we are OK with that.
