Bathroom Help!!

Our “new” house was built in 1918…and Im pretty sure no redecorating has been done since that. The good side to this is that we can make EVERYTHING to our liking…the bad side is well, its going to take some serious effort.

Our first and foremost edit is the bathroom. Recently, prior to us buying it, it was used ONLY for a sit down shower. We are having an issue figuring out how to hang a shower curtain, and for this reason have only been showering in the basement. (Yes, we have a random shower in the basement. Dont ask questions! Its been a lifesaver!!)

Heres the shower/tub:

See that slanted roof? It makes things very difficult! Trying to figure out a way to hang a shower curtain so that we dont have a 12inch gap on that side. Father-in-law is researching partial custom glass to put there.

If anyone else has any ideas…please, enlighten me!!

The rest of the bathroom isnt so bad, I even accept the color as is (I really just like the floor tiles…the pink tub might be a little much for the husband).

However, the bathroom for some reason, was built for someone who is 5’2″ (hence why I like it!). Short vanity mirror…that PW cant see into at all when hes standing up straight. A short sink thats bordering on too small even for me! And, a lack of well…places to put anything.

First on the agenda here? The sink. Its got to go. I’d really like a pedestal sink (like the one below), but then there is REALLY no where to store anything!!

2 hours until the crock pot beef stew is ready…the house smells DELICIOUS!! the in-laws are on their way up with two, (TWO!), truckloads of PWs stuff. A long afternoon of unpacking is in store for me!

Post tonight with more details about todays eats!

  1. Hey courtney.You could screw a cleat (wood, composite,etc) on to slope with a pre drilled hole for shower rod. Where the rod stops (on the right) you could attach a non operational shower curtain to the cleat. You could put hooks on that cleat.Hopefully you know what I mean.
    As regards storage, you could put a recessed medicine cabinet on the wall that will be at your back when you are at the sink. Hope that helps.
    Regards to Pat and congrats on the house, take care,pat

  2. If only “temporary” you could put an “I-Bolt” in the wall on each side, run a taunt wire between and then attach shower curtain. But again, only half ass and temporary.
