We designed our bathroom to retain the timeless original basket-weave floor. We used the Schluter Kerdi shower system previously featured on This Old House. The tub was raised slightly to cover a void in the flooring left when the original tub was removed, as well as to add interest. I love the actual walk-in shower stall, as opposed to the shower inside the tub, which was one of our first projects when we moved into our 1920s foursquare home about 22 years ago. The new ceiling fixture also provides much better lighting.
