Think Twice About Glass Few things open up a bathroom like glass walls and doors. But keep in mind that shower glass requires upkeep. You need to squeegee it regularly to avoid streak marks. This may make it less convenient for a bathroom designed for aging in place. There are heavy-duty types of shower glass that reduce maintenance, but expect to pay more for it.
Instead of splurging for a backyard spa, the owner of this Portland backyard constructed his own bathhouse. Now, a repainted vintage claw-foot tub sits on top of a compacted bed of gravel, surrounded by a small deck made of salvaged cedar boards. Hot water runs from the house to the tub in an above-ground hose hidden in the shrubs. LOVE!!
Tile trim matches cubby hole tiles
Big tiles with small accent tiles
2 curtains with opening in the middle
Like the tile work (in blue)
L shaped shower curtain rod -- no back wall
I like the idea of no wall at the end of the tub.
Wide tub with walk in shower
