Master bath help
February 12, 2014 in Design Dilemma
This is what our master bath looks is big and needs help. What should I do? Our bedroom has grey walls with goldish/yellowish accents and teal.

I'd gut it and start over, at least that's what I'm doing in my dated bath with the huge tub. ;-) What are you prepared to do with it?

We don't use the tub so I would love to take the tub out and make the shower bigger. I'm not sure we will be doing that right now so I was just thinking of adding something to make it a little more spruced up....

For a temporary fix, try adding a valance above the window and some accessories, like plants or glass apothecary jars, around the tub. Painting the bathroom is also a great way to update. Sherwin Williams Quietude is a nice, soothing color.

Could remove the top part of the shower and add glass wall between the tub and shower, then add glass door. Like in Photo 1. Tile above the tub and shower with a more update tile. Or add higher tile backsplash above tub, repeat above the vanity cabinet and shower. Like Photo 2- Which we added a decorative listello/ liner above my client existing tub and then repeated a matching tiled rug design on the floor.

If you are keeping the shower curtain and want to design around that, I agree with Decorating Den suggestions. Photo 3 & 4- Here are some tile backsplash ideas to go with existing shower curtain.

I know it is popular to have a water closet aka enclosing the toilet into its own little room so smells stay in there. This could be something your husband may be interested in. You do have the space for it.

I would definitely enclose the toilet. It is more for privacy and dual use of the space in general. Build a wall halfway between the end of the toilet and the heating vent. See if that would meet the tub wall. If it does not, you can angle the door so it is a 5 sided room. First you can mark it off on the floor with tape to see if it fits/ and if you bump it from either side. install the door so it swings open out- from left to right.
If you can't do a glass shower door, them just update the curtain. maybe a fresh coat of paint and some new towels/accessories will do the trick.
