The mind never ceases to amaze. While staring up at the clear blue sky littered with white cotton ball cumulus clouds, I found the solution to my bathroom annoyance.
In my fantasy world, my bathroom would be a walk-in bath house with no curtains or doors. But in my reality, a rented NYC apartment with a small simple bathroom that houses a shower-tub combination, I (and I’m certainly not alone) do what I can with the space that I do have.
For some time, mimicking the open space of a bath house, I left the tub open and without a shower curtain. But even with a handheld shower head, water splattered everywhere. And so I bought a shower curtain and over time several others in different shades and patterns. But while I didn’t lose sleep over this, there was simply something about those shower curtains that I didn’t like. Maybe because they tended to block the light? Who knows.
What I do know is that when the solution came to me recently–a clear shower liner hung with clothesline rope as the ties!!!–I needed to execute it immediately.
I think it turned out pretty darn cool. It feels right–probably because it’s the closest thing to nothing I could come to.
Moreover, now my bathroom looks and feels more spacious!
