Bathroom Remodel - design questions


Do you mean the main door to the bathroom? Not sure how feasable that would be in my hallway. Good idea.

Any idea on how much (approximate) it would cost to have a shower like that done? Assuming I have it all framed when they get there?

Yes, I mean the main door to your bathroom. I don't know the layout of your hallway, but it seems like the shared wall with the closet adjacent to the door would be wasted space. I guess if it encroaches into your hallway it wouldn't work out. Just a thought.

Not sure how your hallway is from the doorway, as suggested by other to turn it 45Degree; may be a problem as far as coming out and providing a wide enought manuvering(assuming you will not need a wheelchair user).
Hiding the sight.
One way is to put up a half wall no higher than top of your toilet sink and no longer than the toilet it self.
Provide at least 18" from the half wall face to centerline of your toilet bowel. This will provide you enough space. One thing I do not like is where the toilet tissue holder is located. Try located further up closer to front of toilet bowl.
Look good. Don't paint anything dark or it make the space smaller. Leave it as bright as posssible will make the room a pleasant place. Give us a photo when finish.
Good Luck.

It might work out to angle it, I'd have to see. It's close. Definitely worth looking into.

I just got off the phone with a contractor who use CTI brand concrete to do custom showers. He uses a skim coat of polished concrete instead of tile, and he said it can be made to look just like any kind of tile you want, and it's cheaper and more durable.

Any clue about this stuff?

Thanks for everyone's input. Just getting my head wrapped around this remodeling project is becoming tiring!

Another thought I had was to make the upper half of the wall between the shower and the sink out of glass or glass block...is this feasable?

If you think it too small between the toilet and the sink(yes), see if you can back up a wall. see suggestion attachment of another version.

Go to the tile installation forum.com and get a good reliable answer before you do that.
Are you on a raised floor? You may have a problem with stregnth and deflection if on floor if you don't beef up the area of work.

Unfortunately, due to the hallway space, backing up that wall isn't possible...wish it was!

Did you see my proposal, does any part work?

Can you give a little more floorplan of the surrounding area. I think if we look at it in a perspective view of this space, we might see another apporach or solution.
