What would you do with this bathroom?

Here's the 50s-era bathroom that we inherited when purchasing our house. 

 

What would you do with it?

Re: What would you do with this bathroom?

We actually didn't do too much. We love it.

 

We replaced the floor tiles with some large format white tiles and did some waterproofing work first, including resealing the terrazzo in the shower. Then we replaced all the tapwear, and installed a new vanity and mirror. We also replaced the fan and lighting, including a pendant light over the bath.

Loved the orignal and love the alterations..... wanna come and fix mine ???????

Ah, the memories. I remember sharing the exact same colour bath, & terrattzo floored bathroom as a kid, but our bathroom had primrose tiles, with the black accent strip. We had a pedastal basin, & a shower curtain, so yours having a glass shower door, & a vanity cabinet, puts it in the $multiK/night, invitation only league. ; )

 

Nice job, but someone pinched your electric toothbrush.
