What Houzz contributors are saying:
Helgerson salvaged the soaking tub from a friend’s demolition site; her husband built the tub’s wood feet. The designer admits that although sharing one bathroom with three other people proves difficult at times, the rewards far outweigh the inconveniences.
Large scale can work in wee spaces, as this bath demonstrates. Instead of installing a shower only, the homeowner took a more confident tack: Squeezing in a freestanding tub that enhances the room’s cottage overtones. The tall, narrow window elongates the wall visually and makes the ceiling appear higher.
Ignore conventionNo space for that statement slipper bath or roll-top? Are you sure…? Of course, having wall space either side would be more conventional, as would generally putting a fancy bath in a more generously sized room – but a small bathroom hasn’t stopped these homeowners from going big on their bathing spot. And what better way to make the most of a lush view like that?
