Our Farmhouse Bathroom Design Plan Is HERE! + And An Exciting Partnership Announcement :)

HERE WE GO. It’s finally time to tell you about A. One of our biggest partners on the farmhouse and B. Show you what this house is actually going to look like – starting with our bathroom.

Rejuvenation and I were both born in Oregon in the late ’70s, likely on a rainy day, both strangely in plaid, with a bird on top. I’ve been shopping here since I was a teenager – interested in their vintage, antiques, and salvaged anything. And in the last 20 something years we have both changed and grown-up (and yet kinda stayed the same), so after moving back to Portland it was time to properly reunite. It’s a real Hallmark movie – girl moves away, tries all the fancy city lighting, resists her roots, comes back, and has an unexpected moment with a sconce in the store on Grand Street, etc. While still carrying their carefully restored Antiques & Vintage collection, they have become a true resource for all things interior design – all hard fixtures, furniture, and decor. Everything from exterior lighting to cabinet knobs, bathtubs, ottomans, rugs, and pillows. It’s all high quality, classic/timeless, and stylistically they have such an incredible variety (industrial, mid-century, contemporary, classic). This is why I’ve bought and worked with their product for the last 10 years, but the reason I reached out about the farm – in addition to loving the design/quality – was three-fold – the customization, assembled/based in Portland, and the people/ethos.

The Level Of Customization In Lighting (And Plumbing) Is Incredible

What does customization even mean?? Being able to ‘customize’ your hard fixtures means that you can make your lighting (and plumbing and hardware) totally unique to your house and do something you haven’t seen before OR go with their many classic combinations that are guaranteed to look good (with an extremely wide selection). The Rejuvenation design and lighting assembly process (at their factory in Portland, making it easy for them to oversee quality) has it dialed in and is able to execute this level of customization and still be affordable. I love this because it makes it VERY easy to stay within the same ‘lighting family’ without using the same fixture in every room. We always say we want the lighting throughout to feel like ‘cousins’, maybe a quirky aunt or uncle here and there, brothers and sisters for sure, but you don’t want a bunch of matching ‘twins’ throughout the house (no offense to octuplets). And listen, using the same fixture throughout can work but signifies more of a ‘builder grade’ move where a designer wasn’t necessarily involved, but if the ‘twins’ are well-appointed, awesome and the matching minimalist look is what you want then go for it.

Dozens Of Metal Finishes, Countless Shade Options

We employed my ‘siblings + cousins’ lighting world throughout our house, and used the Fairview Collection because it’s super classic with a bit of a sweet industrial bent, and then customized it differently based on the design and function of each room.

You have options for the color, material, and shape of both the fixture AND the shade, which totally changes the vibe and light of the room. And not only that but many of the lighting collections come in a variety of fixtures, including single, double or triple sconces, a pendant OR chandelier and even a flush mount or semi-flush mount ceiling light. AND lastly, you can customize the length of the rod of the pendant – hanging lower over an island and higher in a stairway, for instance. It’s INCREDIBLE.

Their site makes it very easy to do this – and will render each option with a click of the button. It’s always great to come into a showroom and see the finishes and scale for yourself, but honestly, they are pretty darn properly represented online in the photos.

It’s A One-Stop Shop. Seriously.

Another reason I was excited to work with them on this project, our farm, is that they sell everything – lighting, faucets, sinks, cabinet knobs, medicine cabinets, vanities, toilet paper holders, pretty P-traps!, doorbells, pretty light switches, doorknobs, exterior lighting, not to mention every type of furniture, decor, and textiles. You can truly make your life so easy and work with one respected source for so many of your needs with less runaround and still customizable. Now getting your decor and hardware from a million different sources can certainly make for a really curated and special home, but as a professional renovator at this point, it’s also really, really lovely when you can reduce the runaround, have one point person, less coordination nightmare, and avoid the lost spec sheets.

We aren’t sourcing every single thing in the house from Rejuvenation but certainly could (we are mixing in vintage and custom:)). Again if they didn’t have such a wide selection of styles and finishes I wouldn’t recommend getting so many things from one place, but the sheer variety of pretty home products can make your house still look custom and thoughtfully curated (with the ease of one store). Now every house we do (including the River House) will have the right partners that we’ve selected and curated to fit the project. For this home – our home – we are so happy to be working with Rejuvenation.

The Lighting Is Made And Assembled In Portland

Lockdown shifted my entire paradigm on waste and sustainability. While I’m not going to be perfect, for our home I really, really, really want to work with and feature as many local brands and makers as possible. I know that not everyone has the luxury of living in a larger metropolitan city with a robust creative population, but being able to support and feature a locally based company deeply rooted in Portland (the store is a landmark, on SE Grand) with a strong ethos for its people is really important for our home (and they have antique/vintage lighting as well – win/win/win!). Locally based, local economy, local production and heck, I can even pick up from the store if I want to avoid shipping (or if I feel like shopping :)) Again, I’m VERY lucky to live near a large city where creative companies are based, but even if you aren’t near the PNW you can shop at any of their other 10 locations across the country.

They Do Good Things For People And The Earth – 60% Of Their Skilled Craftspeople Are Immigrants And Refugees

Big companies have a PR problem – it’s hard for them to tell the world how good they are in a not “look at us way” (I suppose this is a universal problem is it not?), so as a partner of Rejuvenation’s I get to help tell that story. So not only are they still committed to selling Antiques & Vintage (more on that later), for almost 40 years, they have partnered with local nonprofit the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) to employ immigrants and refugees new to the States looking for work (it was very lovely to chat with them briefly), and they are committed to offering competitive pay, extensive benefits, and the opportunities to learn a marketable skill or skillset and build a resume. 

NOW… THE MAIN BATH DESIGN PLAN

We love a fun orientation rendering – hopefully you can understand where we are in the house. This time around we aren’t doing these in SketchUp (which is so realistic you feel like you’ve actually seen the design) so these renderings that the wonderful ARCIFORM team (looking at you Anne and Stephyn) are paired back – less textures and less realistic (but still great information – keep reading).

The Material Board

She’s quiet. Calm. Inviting. And very us 🙂 First off, the mood of this bathroom matches most of the rest of the house in that it’s paired back, more minimal. Not busy, without too many decorative elements, more textures (wood/stone) than patterns in the permanent finishes, soothing, big windows, and just easy to look at and be in. Not a lot of places to put clutter. We want it to feel airy (white tile behind the vanity, the rest just drywall), wood (white oak on the vanity and windows from Sierra Pacific) blue handmade tile (custom color from Pratt + Larson), brushed gold faucets (I love a wall mount), and classic honed carrera stone. I couldn’t love it more. The inspiration? Our mountain house bathroom (but in a more classic farm way).

photo by sara ligorria-tramp | from: the final mountain house reveal (for now): all the details of my master bathroom

I LOVE this bathroom so much and when I asked myself ‘why’ it was easy to list the reasons: it’s grounded by a darker floor, with the tub as the focus (as it should be for professional bathers like me), with big pretty windows, and the rest is just simple – restrained and again, easy for your eye to understand. While visually it’s not as fun or wild as other bathrooms out there, I just want the farmhouse version of THIS. There is a real sense of calmness and space when you walk in there and my hope is that this is the same thing.

Introducing Our Faucets And Tub

1. Connor Cross Handle Wall-Mount Faucet | 2. Marella Cast Iron Soaking Tub | 3. York Floor Mounted Tub Filler with Handshower | 4. Round Contemporary Shower Head | 5. Connor Lever Pressure Balanced Shower Set with Handshower | 6. Modern Linear Shower Drain Assembly

Here we go. Another reason I reached out to Rejuvenation so quickly is how much we love the Conner plumbing fixture line. It has soft old-world lines, with that nice arch and sweet little cross handle with hot and cold (no confusion here:)). It says traditional/sweet/farm but with more elegance than something that could have gone more industrial. It’s perfect. We used the full suite in the showers, keeping it simple with just one overhead shower head and hand shower for shaving/cleaning.

As you can see they have a huge selection of faucets – many traditional like ours as well as modern (specializing in the in-between). And once you choose the faucets you can add on the toilet paper, hand towel, towel bar, toilet flushers all within the same suite and same finish. Even mirrors (including pivot) and medicine cabinets. And for those of you who know what a P-trap is (for exposed plumbing of which we have two in the house), you’ll want to have pretty supply lines and P-traps. They have you covered.

me, in the kids, clawfoot tub – not our tub (as it wasn’t in the showroom when we shot, but i’ve sat in it since and it’s amazing).

For the tub, we tried out a few of them and landed on what is the most ergonomic tub that still fit the space/style. Because of my bathing habits (frequent), I’m not a “pretty but uncomfortable” tub shopper. Comfort is my top tub priority but this one is also so pretty so win-win. I just love how it supports your back really well as the sides cradle you in a great way that isn’t too crowded or tight. It’s not TOO long because I feel that super long tubs are hard to reach with your toes unless really tall, so you are constantly sliding down and almost dropping your kindle. And while I like a wide tub, this fits us both nicely (together or separate) and fits the space. This is cast iron which means once hot it retains heat and feels so stable with its steel skirt. I have a lot to say about tubs, y’all. A LOT (I still love my tub from the mountain house FYI – it has a bigger footprint but the interior is smaller due to the jets).

Our Lighting Selection

1. Fairview Traditional Single Sconce | 2. Fairview Traditional Pendant

We chose the Fairview single sconce and went with three for ample lighting and because it looks pretty 🙂 We went with the unlacquered brass because we like the patina over time, so yes we are mixing the unlacquered brass lights with the aged brass faucet and we are GREAT with it. As I wrote about here you really do have to maintain it and while I took that risk somewhere else (stay tuned) I really didn’t want to deal with that potential issue in all of our most-used spaces. We used the same line throughout – with a pendant in the hallway and a sconce in the WC (we tried a double in there and it was too big).

There is so much more to tell you – i.e. how we are dealing with privacy with that huge window? Why do we like a shower “room” versus a large glass shower? Why have a vanity niche if it’s not a built-in vanity? Where is the tile going to go and most importantly – will I ever, in my whole life have a medicine cabinet???

Stay tuned for post #2 on our bathroom – coming at you soon.

Thank you, Rejuvenation, for partnering with me on this project, our home. And thanks to you all for supporting the companies that support the blog and bring daily design content. More to come (including vintage lighting I found in their Antiques & Vintage department – I LOVE IT SO MUCH).

Gosh! What’s not to love about this company!?!💜
Ooooh, sooo many gorgeous fixtures that would be perrrfect in my ol’ girl cottage.
Rejuvenation dreaming!😊

I just had 6 new lights put in and 2 are bodgy choices. I sent the electrician details of what to buy and 2 are just, well, wrong.
I was really not well on the installation day and he got away with it – now he won’t fix it.🤐
So, I went against my intuition and ‘trusted’ his so-called expertise. Never again. 🥴
I, personally, will select snd purchase and collect in-person any future light fittings.

This is going to be gorgeous! I’m starting to plan the design for my daughters’ bathroom, and am eyeing some of the Art Deco light fixtures from Rejuvenation. So classic! Have you used a linear shower drain before? We have on in our master, suggestion from the contractor, and after living with it for three years I can say I dislike it with a passion. UGH! You know when the regular, little circular-drain in the shower clogs, and you reach down with a wad of TP in your hands and scoop it out? Toss it in the trash and turn on the shower, now moving along……Well, with the linear drain you can’t do that (dun dun dun)…… So you shower all week, and the debris goes down the drain. Then, it will clog the strainer but you don’t know it (b/c you can’t see it, it’s under the linear drain cover) and you only find out once the water can’t drain and starts backing up into the shower (only when, of course, you’re taking a shower). Then, when you want to clean and/or unclog the thing, you get out your pliers so you can grab the drain cover and lift… Read more »

There are some linear drains that have a removable hair strainer basket inside once you lift the cover. Then you just take that out and wash it in the sink. Also, I feel like they are only necessary when you have a shower without a curb.

The strainer basket helps a bit but you still have to pull the tile drain cover up to see if it is clogged. Like the original commenter, I “remember” to do this only when I’m in the shower and the drain backs up. Not fun.

I have never commented before here but felt compelled to do so about the linear drains as well. I was so excited to see one in our primary bath in the house we purchased, and it had been renovated by the homeowner to sell. Ours is covered with tile so it matches the bath and the water goes around the edges. (Kind of like the attached but nicer tile.) It is a pain to clean. I use a long tweezers like chefs use for plating to lift it out of the groove and to get stuff out of the drain. I have to get on my hands and knees to scrub the underside of the drain cover as well as the channel that leads the water to the circle pipe in the middle. I do it about once a month because I hate it and my spouse also refuses and it is horrible.

Thank you for this comment on linear drains, Karen. I was going to comment earlier asking about all the hair that goes down the drain with those things (but had to hop on a work call) and in the meantime you answered it!

For 20 something years, I’ve used a little drain strainer in the tub drain. (It looks like this one
https://www.homedepot.com/p/DANCO-2-1-2-in-Mesh-Bathroom-Sink-Strainer-in-Stainless-Steel-88820/203675133 .) In all that time, I’ve never had to have the tub “snaked”.

Now that both my partner and I have long hair (and thanks pandemic it seems to be falling out more) every day the strainer is full of hair. Whoever gets in the shower first empties it. If the first person forgets to empty it, the water drains slowly. Just imagine how clogged the pipes would be if we didn’t catch all that hair before it went down the drain! It’s super easy to clean with a bare finger or square of TP in seconds.

Yes, we had this strainer in the drain, and that was what continually backed up. It was arduous to clear it, since lifting the drain cover requires pliers. So my husband removed the strainer (even though I’m stressed that all that hair is now going down the drain and may clog, so heck I think I’m gonna order this and put one back in, shhhh), and now we definitely go longer before we have to clean the linear drain cover/trough. But hair/gunk still builds up on the underside of the linear drain cover, and it’s a pain to get off since it’s almost “wrapped around” the slots (think hand-held srubber, lots of toilet paper wads to grab it, flipping it upside down and right-side up to get it from all angles – and mind you, the thing is long, kinda heavy, and metal; not easy to maneuver). Our drain is at the edge of the shower, where it’s curb-less. Sure, it’s cool we don’t have to step over a curb (um, if we want to call that feature “cool” when it’s really NBD), but definitely not worth the heartache that comes with the linear drain cleaning.

I have a linear drain, and I purchased a mesh screen that you usually use in a kitchen sink, removed the outer ring to make it more flexible, and then put it in the hole inside the drain. So when the water starts to slow, I just take off the top, throw away the hair, and run the screen through the dishwasher. Please respond if that doesn’t make sense.

What a perfect pairing! I am old enough to remember when Rejuvination was amazing, then (to put it mildly) “not quite as much. Looks like they have re-upped their game – although admittedly I’ve only been in mall stores – I think my head would spin – in a good way- at the flagship. My cart is now full of usually hard to find oil rubbed bronze (pro tip: Don’t Do It – choices are limited and their is a often a surcharge) hooks and towel bars.

I can’t tell from the rendering, but do you have enough space for a cozy chair in the corner by the tub? If I could do our renovation over again, one change I would make is borrowing one or two feet from the bedroom and one foot from the vanity on the side so that I could wedge in a chair where I could curl up before and after a bath, or where I could sit and chat with my husband while we get ready in the morning or before bed.

I heartily support your choice for tub filler. I went with a single pipe tub filler and the single handle means that in order to get to the hot water you have to go through cold water first AND you can’t have a low stream of hot water – it’s either a slow stream of cold water or a high fast stream of hot water. It is NOT relaxing.

ohhhhh, i LOVE the Rejuvenation business model. The most important thing is sustainability and how they value/treat their workers. Well, also equally important is how pretty their stuff is. I love the choices you made for the farmhouse. Perfect for that style of house. I just recently found the chandelier i want for our dining room from Rejuvenation. Now i just nee to save up!

So tranquil! And I know this is annoying, but since it seems to really describe the vibe you’re going for it’s worth noting—it’s “pared back,” like a paring knife—the verb “pare” means to take a little off the edges, while “pair” means adding an additional, similar thing! Since they’re opposite I couldn’t help myself, haha. Excited to see what’s next!

I love the Rejuvenation fixtures but omg their customer service is HORRIBLE. Supply chain being what it is, we expect delays. We did a bathroom renovation a year ago a bit before things were really bad. But they LOST an entire vanity, sink, and countertop at some location in the US and despite, no kidding, 30+ calls with customer service they truly just had no idea where anything was. On the same day, I’d learn my vanity was in Ohio, or LA, or North Carolina. It was in the warehouse, or, no, it wasn’t. It was on a truck, or, no, it wasn’t. They use the same shipping procedures and service as West Elm (notoriety everywhere for abysmal service and lost items) and seriously, I doubt they actually have tracking software. Posting to warn everyone: don’t buy furniture unless you can see it travel with your own eyes.

THIS! I’m sure Emily will get star treatment and have no problems, but buying a sofa from Rejuvenation was the single worst customer experience of my life. Delivery took twice as long as estimated, it started to come apart at the seams (there is a seam down the middle of the sofa’s leather bench seat cushion) within weeks. I wanted it repaired (a service they say they offer) and was told they’d have to send me a new one instead. When it finally arrived, I refused delivery because it was much lower quality leather and the wrong color. They sent a replacement for the replacement. It was the same one I’d refused weeks earlier! It took dozens of phone calls and multiple visits to their Culver City store before they finally agreed to send the cushion out for repair. I was certain I’d never see it again, but did eventually get it back. The seam has since started to fail again. I will never shop there again.

Same. I ordered a light fixture with a glass shade, and when the shade arrived shattered they ordered me a new one (great!) only to tell me 2 weeks later they couldn’t source the shade anymore. I sent the fixture part back, which they refunded me for, but 15+ attempts later, they just started ghosting me on any refund for the shade. I ended up spending over $100 for the shade and shipping costs, plus hours of time and delays on my project, to be left frustrated and empty-handed. I’m also a designer, and I refuse to source from them anymore.

We bought a very expensive dresser from Rejuvenation a few years ago (pre-pandemic). It was the only one I could find that would fit in a particular nook in our primary bedroom (we opted not to do a custom piece, and I was also getting tired of looking through secondhand options to no avail). While we didn’t run into such egregious customer service issues and delays as many of the other commenters here, the delivery experience was disappointing. We never got a heads-up call of when the delivery date would be, and so it arrived randomly one day. We also paid for them to assemble it and remove all packaging (i.e. white glove delivery service). The delivery guy griped and complained the whole time about how heavy the drawers were, etc. Overall, it was not a professional experience, and at this price point, frankly it was a total let-down. Since then, I have only bought a handful of switch plate covers from them (bought online, arrived in the mail). I will never buy furniture or any lighting.

Love that you are partnering with Rejuvenation! I have bought and continue to buy a lot from them for my older home. I will offer a warning on the faucets: be delicate with how you clean them. I had the same brass faucets in a bathroom remodel and the finish came off. Rejuvenation replaced them, but unfortunately the finish started coming off again. I was told the lacquer didn’t cure long enough. They were from Watermark sold on the Rejuvenation site so hopefully these are different.

As someone who loves the Rejuvenation “look”, I’m already following them on Instagram, etc. Is there an easy way to find out what other influencers/bloggers they sponsor? It would be great to be able to see more examples of Rejuvenation in the wild/blogged about. Same thing with Schoolhouse, which I think is also from PDX?

I’ve found one of the easiest ways to see products “in the wild” is to go to their product page and scroll down to see the “gallery”. In there, they have the Instagram handles of people using their products! Often, these are partnerships and once you click through you just keep clicking and before you know it, you fall down the rabbit hole of beautiful design!

Yes, freestanding tubs can be hard to get in and out of.

I love our wall mounted faucet in on one of our bathrooms. The counter stays cleaner. I’m sure the splashing depends on the depth of the sink and the installation height of the faucet, but we’ve never had a problem with ours.

If you or your partner have to shave their face (like beard hair), then a wall mounted faucet is AMAZING. So much easier to keep the counters clean. As for the tub, we have a freestanding and it’s fine but we are also on the tall side so maybe that makes it easier to swing a leg out when you get up?

The worst customer service experience of my entire life was with Rejuvenation.com. They overcharged me a LOT and refused to refund. The customer service reps weren’t just not helpful, they were exceptionally rude. One customer service rep would not even look at my online order history “because I don’t need to, because I know we charged you correctly.” Um, humor me? In the end, I successfully disputed the charge with my credit card company simply by showing my original order confirmation. The quality of their products has also been very variable, some good, some awful. It’s the lack of customer service that really irks me, though.

I had a mixed experience with them myself a couple of years ago, and afterward noticed they’d racked up quite a few dreadful reviews for customer service on Yelp and elsewhere. This contrasts with the great service I got from them in the early 2000’s while the company was still locally owned.
The pricing is such that one expects better, so I hope they’re in the process of sorting all that out. Or that it’s already sorted.

All looks great- love Rejuvenation. I would recommend a lever handle for a wall mount faucet- not a cross handle. It is much easier to use. I see lever handles in the renderings. And completely unrelated to the bathroom plan, but I love your clog boots- please share details. Thanks and good luck!

One thing to consider with a free-standing bathtub: safety issues when getting into and out of the tub when there are no grab bars to support you other than a slippery tub rim. Perhaps the bottom of the tub is designed to grip your feet, but this is something to think about especially if your children will also use this tub occasionally.

anon

Reply to  Jan Jessup

Good point about safety, Jan. If there’s not a grippy bottom to the tub then definitely a bath mat should be used in it. Many years ago I was aquainted with someone who slipped in the shower-over-tub and hit her head. It only took her husband a few minutes to find her, and she was rushed to the ER blocks away from her home but she died the same day. She was only in her 20s. 🙁 That’s when I started always using a bath mat in the tub.

Also, if they’re planning to grow old in this house… now might be the time to start thinking about what would be needed for aging in place or infirmity at any age. Maybe a wheel chair can roll into the shower? Is the tub low enough to allow one of those benches to be used to get in and out? is there a way to make grab bars that aren’t ugly?

I love a simple, peaceful bathroom! This one looks just right. I got to stay at the Mountain House and that bathroom was maybe my favorite room! (though the kitchen w/ cooktop at the window was wonderful to be in, too). The heated, dark floors were indeed grounding now that you mention it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on vanity height. Apparently (I just found out) new vanities are mostly several inches taller than the old standard of what, 33″? As a short gal I love the shorter height vanities and felt a bit like a child at the taller new ones… plus couldn’t bend down far enough to wash my face at the sink without water running down my arms and chin.

I really like Rejuvenation, too! Got a really nice leather sofa from there 3 years ago and it is still just as nice as the day we got it. I like that they have new and vintage products. Been eyeing a couple of their rugs. I’ve been in their Seattle store and everything looks so high-quality! Looks like a nice design!! Of course, it is!

As much as I love their ethos, I frankly could not afford over $18,000 worth of bathroom fixtures as Emily did. Plus the lighting…

May I suggest safety grab bars in the water closet and shower. Installed at construction with quality/beautiful ones is so much better than retrofitting later. Safety bars help when anticipating aging/injury.

Please if you have some “beautiful” grab bars can you link? I mentioned in a previous comment that it would be good to have grab bars that aren’t ugly if they were planning to age in place. I’ve never seen any grab bars that don’t scream “institution”.

I love the matte blue of the custom tile. What is the name of the color?

Does your “partnership” with Rejuventation mean that all of their products are free to you? I ask because their products are expensive and it would be nice to see one or two less pricey products that would give the same look as Rejuvenation.

Great design but this is not the first time I have differed with you on design choices that make cleaning a pain. Dark bathroom floors show dirt very quickly. I love your ideas for all the rest.

After reading all these horror stories of Rejuvenation’s customer service and delivery/order fulfillment, I actually have a really different experience. I ordered a wall mount mail box, and instead of just delivering one, they sent me 2 of the same one. I took the one I didn’t need back to the Rejuvenation store (I’m in Houston), and the person working there said she wasn’t surprised at all that I’d received 2. It struck me as an odd comment at the time, but I guess mess ups are par for the course with them?

Anyway…good luck! I would echo the comments about hopefully having more budget friendly “get the look” alternatives if possible. Rejuvenation is quite pricey…

Oooh is the shower room going to be dual-purpose – sauna??

Love the custom blue. Live the metal finish tones.

And did not know all that about Rejuvenation. 👏

I can’t wait to see how this turns out, I’m in love with all of the elements!! I recently moved into a 1915 Farmhouse in New England and a bathroom update is in our wish list and this will be so inspiring!

One question I have about the tub – I have had a soaking tub on my list of wants for so long, but we only have one bathroom that can fit a tub so we need a tub that can both work for ‘me time’ soaking as well as the chores of life – kids, pets, etc. Are there any styles you recommend that could do both and look good doing it? 😉

Thanks!

Can’t wait to hear your “shower room” thoughts. We currently have an OBSCENELY stupid shower (9’ Long, one faucet, 9’ of glass wall) and are weighing layout options. Huge shower with glass wall + tiny vanity – surely designed and built by a man who doesn’t clean 😂
