Enlarging a shower opinion and ideas ?

nightowlrnOctober 23, 2013

Hello - and thanks in advance to anyone with an opinion or idea. We may purchase a house, but the MBR shower is 36x36. That is a deal breaker unless we can remodel and not break the bank. This is the floor plan.

Would this look work? Would it look good or like a cheesy fix? Other ideas that won't break down walls?

Could you do a curbless shower, extend the floor tile into the shower and not put a door on so that part of the bathroom becomes a partial wetroom? I think curbless can be expensive but you would save money if you don't need a door.

Or can you swap the toilet and the shower? The toilet area looks larger and I think 36" x 36" is adequate space for the toilet.

Could you ditch the tub and put a larger, walk in shower in it's place? Of course, you'd have to be willing to give up the tub...
