On the other hand, install a tub-shower like this one from @eleven_views_ is definitely not the cheapest change of scenery you can make, but it is perhaps one of the most impressive.

Is there anything more festive than this confetti look of terrazzo floors? We don’t think so, and we love the look in this bathroom by @theinteriorfox.

The end result is a clean look with tons of visual appeal.
