The tub/shower combination was small. The small vanity and lack of medicine cabinet made for inadequate storage. The lighting was poor. And quite importantly, there was no exhaust fan.
The door swing was reversed and the opening was shifted to allow for a 42" x 42" shower stall. A shallow hall closet was eliminated and incorporated into the bathroom. The lighting was improved with two wall sconces (on a dimmer) flanking the medicine cabinet, a recessed shower light, and a central flush mounted fixture. A top/down window shade provides both privacy and light. A powerful fan on a timer exhausts steam. Radiant floor heat is controlled by a programmable thermostat. The wallpaper with graphic images of classical architecture adds decoration and drama to the white and black color scheme.
