Design Solution for Ugly Tub Front
I recently redecorated the master bathroom. It's smaller than I would like but it's great to have three full baths. This bathroom has a whirlpool tub which is wonderful but created an unsightly area that I hated. The tub surround is an acrylic product made by Swanstone which is durable, beautiful and never needs to be re-grouted. I had some pieces leftover after we installed the surround. My brain went to work on creating a removable (needed to have access to the mechanicals) front panel to cover up the ugly tub front. The items I used to make the panel are: fiberboard for the backing, Swanstone acrylic sheet and trim pieces, mosaic tile 12x12 sheet, silicone glue, and grout. These are photos of the finished product.
