Master Bath Finish Choices; KISS?
Sorry I am so needy everyone!
So, some time back I posted my new MBR suite layout, and it is now finalized (so no fair making any comments now, LOL). (oops, the linen closet door placement has changed)
Anyway, if you look on the plan below, the long rectangular room at the bottom left is the room that previously housed the entire MBA. Post-reno, it will house the shower and a toilet and a folding railroad sink. The new shower stall is larger than the existing one. Two more sinks and a tub will be in what used to be the adjacent bedroom.
I also include below a photo of the old bathroom (see why it is now gutted?!).
These are my questions:
1. I believe that given the meager proportions of this room,and the 1906 pedigree of the house, that the tile should be relatively simple. Decorative items and borders and such will, I think, draw attention to the puniness.
Do you agree? Just one tile, covering the entire stall?
2. If I were to do a more elaborate tile, the one I like looks a little like wallpaper (handpainted, muted, one color on off white). I would use it like wallpaper, ie, on the top half or two thirds of the wall, with a solid tile below. Where would you break it in a shower like this one (note sloped ceiling in stall).
3. Or, maybe use this "wallpaper tile" in the room with the tub, on the wall that has the tub and two sinks?
4. I am so tired of glass shower doors, at least the common frameless ones. I am wary of doing a shower curtain in kids baths, but I trust us. If I put one here, is there enough room to tie it back?
