Slanted shower ceiling? Creative solution.

Category: Bathroom

When flipping through the pages of this book ("Pottery Barn Bathrooms") in the local bookstore, we happened upon the above picture.

The only space useful for an upstairs shower has an unusual ceiling. And it can't be a standard height and dimensions. Because someone who will be living in this house is 6' 7" tall. He's not your standard dimensions either. Unless you are in the NBA.

.

Eureka! Take the curve out where walls meet the ceiling (we were going to have to do that anyway because humidity over the years has destroyed it) and TILE RIGHT UP THE ANGLED WALL! Thus, we can position the showerhead higher to accomodate Aaron's height and also protect "the splash zone" that occurs when shower water hits an unyielding object (aka, a person).

We were impressed.

We were even more impressed when we accepted an invitation to see the bathroom of the friend-of-a-friend helping us tile our bathroom and found...the same thing!

Needless to say, he's going to be a lot of help!

How do we look at something like that bathroom upstairs and SEE the potential in it? We ask ourselves that a lot.

It's a little bit intuition, a little bit desperation and the judicious use of these...**

I'm sure you've read this, but maybe read the whole thing so you don't end up doing the tub twice...

Or you could be just like Shannanigan and tile _the entire bathroom_.

*Sigh* I love her house. She's my retro decorating twin.
