Sloping walls and 'useless' spaces
Georgia Szollosi
February 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm moving in a penthouse. Though the bathroom is quite big the builders put the bathtub in the middle of the room. As the walls are sloping it's not easy to use the place around the tub though it is big. My boyfriend is 192cm tall. Considering that I thought to put some shelves and a chair with some candles on a small table. Any ideas?

I think the shelves sound like a great idea... Maybe you could add a bright vase of flowers to spruce up the place a bit,, with scented candles...

What fun....since the tub is in the center you can turn this into a zen-like space. Do you like the white? I would soften it with a subtle color, add a corner of real live plants of different heights with a large mirror across from the plants so you and view the plants from the mirror or live. I would add several benches and
some water fountains. There are fountains that turn different colors and you can diffuse essential oils from it and it appears as if smoke it being released. Have a place to play your favorite music. Did I mentions mirrors ...mirrors will make a space look larger. You could even mirror the entire wall that you see when you walk in and look straight ahead. Having fun decorating.

I agree that the built-ins will help immensely.

That's quite a change! It looks like a home now; you just need to find somewhere for the magazines and books to live. Some humidity-safe uplighter cans might be something you want to add to make it a more relaxed space when you don't want to be lying in the bath looking up at your recessed halogen lights.

It's really interesting to see how others deal with tricky spaces like this. Much as I'd like to find a 192cm boyfriend, I don't think one would be compatible with my super-tiny roof-space bathroom...
