This small guest bathroom in a condo on the beach desperately needed a complete overhaul. We took it to the studs. The space was long and narrow and problematic to begin with having only 7 ft ceilings. And, of course the client wanted a rain head! Yikes! To accomodate this need we recessed the rainhead in a ceiling “niche” of sorts and tiled it with the coordinating mosaic glass we used in other niches in the room.
The client also requested a tub...and shower..but wanted us to be creative in finding the right one. The Neptune “Wind” tub fit the need perfectly. The challenge was how to hang a shower curtain as well as how to mount a tub filler...we used a kohler laminar spout coming from wall so it looks great as well as functioning just as we needed. The shower curtain dilemma is solved by using an old fashioned 25 dollar clothesline. It stretches out from one end to the other and the curtain hangs on it when needed. Day to day the tub shines as the star!
The client also requested a kitty litter box cut into one side of the cabinet so we made the cabinetry look the same from front but on side next to toilet is a small cutout for kitty to enter and exit. The door opens to easily clean the box.
The candle niches were cut into the back wall of tile to give some visual texture to the room. The flooring is 12x12 terrazzo tiles that work perfectly off the blue glass 6x12 tile on the back wall. The other walls are limestone. The countertops are blue lagos Ceasarstone.
All in all, this bath really packs a powerful punch in a small space!

This is to Cheryl Kees Clendenon.
We are using the Neptune Wind in our 6.5' x 6.5' bathroom with 7' ceilings (nearly a perfect cube).
I was going to use the that tub's custom shower curtain rod, but it is chrome. I have also considered using a ceiling mounted track for the curtain.
After reading your resolution for the Wind tub in your client's bathroom, I am curious about what you actually used, and where the shower curtain is when not being used for a shower.
Thank you. »
Distance from cabinet to wall with niche - How much space does the toilet and the "skinny" of the tub occupy all together? We would like to install same layout. How much space do we need between vanity and tiled wall? Beautiful arrangement! »
