Remodelling a tiny bathroom


I like the shower idea. We did that in our master bath and it works extremely well.

I think our shower ended up being 36 inches wide by the length of the standard tub. It is more than sufficient size so I wouldn't worry too much about adding the extra space unless you want room for two AND a chair.

And the extra wide door is an excellent idea.

A friend is a Home Care worker with the elderly, she says although they seem like a good idea, they suck.
Have to sit and wait while water fills, then sit and wait while it drains.

Hmm, never thought of that. Very good point.

Why not just make it a big shower - the same size as the tub? Every home in Florida I have ever been to has this and it's quite easy in-n-out.

By the way, how old is the picture of that soaking tub? I thought gold fixtures went out of style in 1990 LOL.

Maybe they are banking on older folks hanging on to the older style?

Looks great dpach!
But probably costs as much as the whole house renovation will!
(And can't say I've ever seen one of those in Australia)
