Shower too?


I'm doing a remodel of the bathroom, floor up and everything BUT I haven't included the tub/shower in that plan. It's tiled back splash for the tub walls and the tub itself is in pretty good condition.

Not taking cost into consideration, should I do the tub and/or backsplash also? Or if it's in good condition, leave it? Pic included, thanks for any advice!

Re: Shower too?


One potential problem with mixing new and old is that you spend all your time and treasure on re-doing part, only to stand back and realize that the difference between the two become striking. Styles of tubs, tile and fixtures change. Unless you source 'retro' looking elements, you might be disappointed with the result

that is oh so very true. but, in this case, he/she can put the shower curtain to match the new, and hid the old.

Re: Shower too?


I have a series of brushed aluminum fixtures now so I'm thinking to get one of those "larger area" shower curtain rod in the same color and thinking that will help
