A lot of you might have seen my recent master bathroom makeover that we did a few weeks ago. We didn’t completely gut our master bathroom but really just change out the finishes to change it up. We redid the bathtub, the floor and the vanity, leaving the shower because it would be a big project and we really didn’t want to put the time and money into it. Plus since it was already white, it didn’t clash with the new colors we were putting into the bathroom. I of course have thought about changing it out, who doesn’t want to have a fancy shower, with beautiful tiles or a stand alone shower with clear glass doors to make a statement in your master bathroom? I have always dreamed of having something like that, but reality hit and when we were redoing our bathroom, we decided not to tackle the shower. I didn’t think anything of it and posted about our makeover.
A couple weeks after I posted my master bathroom on my blog, the corner bathtub post got featured on Facebook on a big site. I was so excited that it got featured and since I had already gotten a decent, positive response on the bath tub, I thought that I would read the comments on Facebook. That was a big mistake…. I usually know better but I was curious what people thought about my tub. **Just a note, bloggers are people and we do see comments on our posts, so remember the golden rule, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all 🙂 **
Or I was thinking that we could just replace the current sliding glass doors and get a swinging door with clear glass, a simple fix but one that would make the shower look more updated and clean and fresh :). So my question for you is, what would you do? Would you tile the shower and get a base and new doors, just replace the doors or just leave it alone? And a couple more questions for consideration: Do you have tiles in your shower and do you love them? How easy are they to clean? And the swinging door, is it easy to keep clean? And does it make a mess when you open it? I would love to hear your thoughts! Now keep in mind that we are not rich and this is not HGTV and we would be doing this on our own :).
If you use the bathtub, keep it. The update looks clean and crisp, good job. We don't use ours and it drives me nuts. We would rather have a bigger shower and utilize the bathtub space for storage.
We have white tile and grout in our shower and, although I like the look, it has been a nightmare to keep clean. Our area has a high concentration of iron in the water that, even with sealing, water filtration and daily wipe-down after showering, becomes a rusty orange in short order. We are looking at solutions for a do over and have narrowed the options down to Corian or possibly stainless steel……doing more extensive research and poling the neighbors for their solutions….???? Ideas, anyone?
