Reveal of Guest Bathroom

Ta da! A completed guest bathroom.  This bathroom is a two room bathroom, separated by a pocket door.  The new shower is a curbless shower, which makes it easy to walk right in. The shower floor is sloped to keep the water in the shower. We chose travertine, as we already have it in our home on most of the floors, showers, etc.

The picture below was the original and does not show a step that was added later.  Even with the step it was difficult to get into and out of. The bathroom was a poor design to begin with.  The tub came from Germany and was narrow to save water.  In addition the tub was raised up making it very difficult to step up and over. 

The cabinets are melamine.  My husband painted them with a Rustoleum paint and primer spray paint, which is featured below.

We also ordered oil rubbed bronze knobs.

I wanted a wide band of 2x2's for the border.  These were installed diagonally. The glass is about 42" and we decided to go with the chipped edge.  The  bronze light fixture we  originally had  in our downstairs bath, before we replaced it with a crystal chandelier.  It looks great in here.

A very large walk-in shower.  We took several showers to test it out.  Works perfectly with no water escaping. It feel so roomy and open.  We had the glass treated to prevent water spots. We use a squeezee and the glass cleaner from Home Depot, which was recommended by the Glass company.

Oil rubbed bronze shower components tie in with the Tuscan look.
A wide niche for the bath products.

The  ceiling light matches the decorative box on the small cabinet.
I found this cabinet online.  I checked prices and Houzz had it for less.  A perfect little cabinet that fits the space nicely.

We are very pleased with the outcome of this guest bathroom.  Now, we do not have to worry about guests tripping on that darn step and that narrow tub.  Just walk right in.
