    Default Bathroom renovation opinions PLEASE!!

    We have a shower bath combo and it has its pros and cons. It's a bit of a pita when bathing dd as I sit on a little stool to watch her, the glass sits against the towel racks held in place by the stool. But one of the best things is when dd (2.5yrs) starts going crazy and splashing everywhere I can simply close the glass door and the water is contained while I sit there watching her. When she calms down I open it again.

    From a buy/sell point of view I wouldn't worry about it. We also have an ensuite and have a double sized shower.

    If you could move the door over, how about this?

    Thank you for doing this up for me, you're very kind!

    I don't think that moving the door is a good idea though in this house because if we moved it to the left at all when you looked up the stairs you would look into the bathroom door. At the moment when you look up the stairs it's a wall that you can hang something nice on to see at the top of the stairs.

    I'm not sure though.. Maybe that doesn't matter?

    You could mirror this so the door doesn't have to move, but then you have to move the toilet to the other wall. But realistically something will have to move, ie. the vanity, bath etc. so it's getting re-plumbed anyway.

    If we mirrored it though the cavity slider wouldn't work because the door would need to slide part way into the cavity of the ensuite next door.

    We asked our builder about doing this and said that we couldn't because it would hit ensuite plumbing He is coming over tomorrow to check some other stuff out so I will ask him again.

    Otherwise what you've done would probably have been the best possible floor plan. Thank you again

    This is the one you did, which when I drew up to the millimeter I think works.

    But you should get those stand alone bath tubs. They come at 1500x760 I'll find a link.

    You don't have to have a slider, an openable door works as there is plenty of space.
