Wall for rear of tub.


I have a tub with 2 walls,L shaped shower curtain. I want to put a rear wall but toilet is placed snuggled behind it . thinking of building off rear ledge of tub. Possibly glass blocks (probably too wide). Any ideas??

Ok, how many inches from the outer edge of the tub to the closest part of the toilet?

Do you know if the tub is cast iron, fiberglass or sheet metal?

Re: Wall for rear of tub.


Cast iron is plenty strong enough to support a glass block wall. You could just build up a wall from the edge of the tub.

You could make the bottom a transition from a curved shape on the inside to match the tub to squared off to match the glass block. You could use white tiles, like a mosaic on the inside that is easy to curve. On the outside, you could just use something different as that is more square. I'd probably cast my own cement transition, or maybe cut down some solid blocks or bricks to fit. I wouldn't use wood, even pressure treated.

Re: Wall for rear of tub.


I would use tempered glass, two pieces siliconed together at the 45 corner.
Set them on the tub rim and silicone into place.

2 pieces if you wanted to come all the way to the front edge, turning the corner at that 45 corner.
You could stop short of that and just use one pain on the end and be done.
You would still need an "L" shaped curtain rod.

Myself, I would try to figure out how to get glass on the end so I could install some sliding doors as well.
