I was remodeling the bathroom and the clawfoot bathtub purchased was 61″ long. The bathroom was 59″ wide, so I built a recessed arch behind it to make room.
The single arch looked odd, so I built another. Then thought about needing a place to put soap and shampoo – and a third arch resulted… this one!
The bathroom was white and blue themed and the flooring selected looked to me like someone threw water over it (blue and white mosaic tiles). My wife and I came up with the Waves design and the third arch became a reality.
Note – before the bathroom was complete, I thought it needed a 4th arch – over the toilet.
