Our bathroom is quite tiny, the dimensions of which support a bath laid across the room (2m wide) under the window (1.7m wide central) and there's room for a sink next to the bath facing the side wall door opposite the window.
Now, because of the size of the window, we cannot have a shower enclosure, and we are struggling to get our heads around how to place a shower in the room (i.e. over the bath).
The problem is that the size of the window means that if we have a shower over the bath, then the window frame (and sill) is going to get soaked - unless we have one of those horrible plastic shower curtains.
The widow is a upvc double glazed widow - situated in the orignial wooden frame (and sill).
My only option, which I need some advice on - is.... to take out the interior wooden frames and sill (chisel out right up the the upvc frame) and then tile over the sill and around the inside of the window hole - right up to the upvc frame. This would make the whole thing water proof and hence no shower screen curtain required.
Now my questions are:
- will this look silly?
- and more importantly, if I take away the whole inner side of the wooden frames, will the upvc window fall out? Or it it likely to be more securely fastened to the brickwork?
Any advice or workarounds appreciated.
