What did you do at the edges of your alcove bath/shower?
We're going to tear out this 43 year old acrylic sunken tub/shower.
That sunken tub was so cool when I was 23 - it's become way less cool as I approach retirement age. The plan is to remove what's there, build up the floor and put in the Kohler Villager tub with the 4" ledge in back, making the total width about 34-1/2". Even with the 4" ledge, the new tub will be recessed further than the current tub. The new edge will be in the middle of the square piece of blue tape. There will also be a shower; that tub never actually gets used except for the couple of times a year the grandchildren are here. We considered using a solid surface surround of some sort, but it seems that everything would have to be custom because of the odd width. We're thinking tile, probably large format (12x24). I looked on houzz to see what others had done to finish off the edges, but those bathrooms all seem to be endlessly spacious with a distinct lack of plain-Jane shower/tub combos like ours. Bring the tile all the way to the corner of the wall? Around it? Just past the tub? On the door end, I assume the tile should go to the door jamb? I know some people here have bathrooms more like this, so I'm hoping you'll share photos of what they look like, especially around the edges. Thanks much!
