Given a small master bath, 4’x5’ floorspace and a 3’ square shower, what little features, accents, materials, additions, colors would you use to make it “perfect”?
We are about to cash out some equity in our poor little house that is apparently worth a lot more than we owe on it.
The master bath is #2 on the priority list, and while we don’t have unlimited funds to pour in to it, it is nice (and kind of fun) to know that we aren’t doing THIS job on the lower end for once.
So we have plenty of ideas and things, but I think I’ll not share those in the OP so as to keep the creativeness flowing for a bit.
I will be taking it all the way down to the framing, so I have full access for electrical and plumbing modification and additions…whiiiiich includes taking out all the old galvanized piping, replacing the subfloor and adding sister joists to level the floor, and quite possibly adding/planing framing to plumb and square the space. This may be necessary based on what I can see from the current tile layout.
I am strongly considering a custom engineered-stone shower pan that will give us another 8" of shower on the entry side. While that doesn’t obligate me to get the matching engineered wall panels, the package is pretty attractive.
We’ll be doing all the work. I consider myself an above-average diy-er; I worked in residential construction and remodeling for about 3 years back in a previous life, and I have plenty of successful projects of all types that don’t end up looking like novice homeowner crap.
So blow my mind… :eek: Give me the ideas I haven’t thought of that will make my little bathroom freaking awesome.
Or, to make my lovely wife’s bathroom freaking awesome. Because honestly, I just want a clean place to take a shower.
