Four Scary Bathrooms You Have to See to Believe

Oct 01, 2020

See how These Four Scary Bathrooms Turned Out!

With more than 53,000 projects completed, we’ve been inside a lot of bathrooms. While they all need a little TLC, some of them have made us say “yikes!” Take a look at a few recent projects that went from “boo!” to “beautiful!”   

This Scary Bathroom goes from blue to beautiful

This Marysville, Ohio bathroom had a serious case of the blues – until ImproveIt arrived! Our team did a full tub-to-shower conversion with a sleek white shower base, gorgeous Calcutta marble surround, and simple wainscoting on the adjacent walls. Inside the new walk-in shower, the homeowner chose chrome fixtures and grab bars from our Brantford accessories collection. The finishing touch was a barn-door style double slider shower door. The new bathroom is still jaw-dropping, but for all the right reasons! 

Improving a Scary Unsafe Shower

Before: Scary & Unsafe Tub
Before: Dingy & Unsafe Tub

Sometimes the scariest bathrooms we see are the ones that put homeowners’ safety in jeopardy. This Columbus bathroom belonged to an older couple that was tired of feeling unsafe getting in and out of the shower. Instead of trying to step in and out of the tub (and deal with a dangerous broken soap ledge), a safe accessible shower was the best option to solve their scary bathroom problems.

With a tub-to-shower conversion that only twook about three days, the team installed a white shower base, Silver White Marble walls with a Roman block pattern, and a matching shower safety bench

For even more safe bathing elements, the homeowner selected two grab bars and a hand-held shower in brushed nickel from our Brantford collection. These safe bathing features will allow the homeowners and other users to easily move in and out of the shower, and bathe while seated. No more scary bathrooms here!

Additionally, the shower walls clean easily with soap and water, and never require scrubbing, making them ideal for this universal design shower space. To finish the space, traditional wainscoting wraps the bathroom wall leading to the new corner-shaped vanity – a great small-bathroom remodeling idea. The vanity features a simple marble sink top, single-lever faucet, and lovely three-globe light fixture. 

Yikes! When Shower Liners Go Terribly Wrong

Scared to see what’s going on behind your bath or shower liner? You should be. As the owners of this Cincinnati bathroom remodel found out the hard way, liners are just a problem waiting to happen. After about five years (the average lifespan of a tub or shower liner), this one finally needed to come out and the mess it left behind was frightful. 

Thankfully, ImproveIt was able remove the failed liner and damaged bathtub, and replace them both with a new white tub and our Othello walls with a classic subway tile design. Even with the popular look of white tile with black grout, the system is completely grout-free! (That means even the two teenage boys who share this bathroom will be able to keep it clean with no scrubbing ever.) The bath and shower space was finished with brushed nickel fixtures from our Wynford collection, simple corner soap dishes, and a curved shower curtain rod to give a little extra elbow room in the shower space.  

Scary Bathrooms: Mustard Mayhem

Harvest gold and chocolate brown were signature colors of 1970s design. And while we’re sure this bold Dayton bathroom was a show-stopper back in its day, the homeowners and our designers knew that this home had held onto its vintage “style” for far too long.

At some point, one of the bathroom’s two doorways was sealed off to make space for a full-size shower. So in addition to refreshing the color palette, this bathroom got a major layout upgrade with a full-size walk-in shower.

In the completed design, a white shower base anchors the Roman Stone walls with our Fairfield tile pattern. A matching four-shelf corner caddy gives plenty of room for shower storage, while two grab bars add a safety element. The brushed nickel grab bars and showerhead are from our Gibson collection, and everything is hidden behind a stylish sliding shower door with privacy glass.

The homeowners also updated the bathroom with a new vanity, sink, single-handle faucet, and light fixture (not pictured.) The new design brings the bathroom well into the 21st century, and with a lifetime warranty, is guaranteed to keep looking great for decades more.
