Help with bathroom remodel!!!
I live in a 60 year old bungalow and the bathroom is in serious need of a remodel. The bathroom is small so the previous owners thought it would be a good idea to put a small "Japanese sitting tub" in because of its small size. This tub would be great for a midget, but I am 6'5'. The current size of the bathroom is 3'7" wide by 7'6" long. I plan on widening the bathroom from 3'7' to 5'7" to allow for a five foot tub to fit in the newly remodeled bathroom. Currently the ceramic tiles are falling off the wall. We would like to put a surround in to replace the tile, but we have a 3' tall by 1.5' wide window in the center.
My question is this;
What is a good surround that can be cut for a window that does not cost a huge amount? I would also like a surround that is tall because I would like the shower to be fairly high. I am not opposed to tile, but I know that a good surround should make it completely water proof. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
