Any options for remodel?

These are pictures of our main bathroom. We're kind of tired of the shower stall idea, it's too small and difficult to keep clean, although we do like the early 50's style of the tile. Just curious of there is some hidden potential in here that I'm not seeing, or if we're basically stuck with this.

Re: Any options for remodel?


I had an unattractive, leaky shower stall that had been added to our 1929 home in the mid-80's. Like yours, we just weren't big fans of the stall, which was mashed in a tiny bathroom with a clawfoot tub. My husband and I demoed the stall, and in its place had a built-in added. The custom built-in was a bit of a splurge, but you could use old cabinetry from the ReStore or somewhere similar and just trim out around it. Our new bathroom is spacious and the added storage is incredible. I just bought a shower surround for the clawfoot, which takes the place of the shower stall. I hope that idea helps!
