Unlike 30 years ago when I bought my place, I now completely hate my vintage bathroom. I am sick sick SICK of a 94-year old pedestal tub that is so fricking high it's difficult to get in and out of - even if you don't have bad knees or hips. Jury-rigged showers and two shower curtains SUCK. I can't wait to ditch the damn thing (along with the rusted pedestal sink with separate hot/cold faucets as well as moldy plastic tiles on the walls) and put in a walk-in shower. The way I'm planning to deal with not having a tub is to also put in a regular tub faucet to use for filling buckets, kiddie/dog tubs, etc. Unfortunately, sometimes "vintage" is nothing more than functionally obsolete. The real challenge is to upgrade in such a way that you successfully combine exactly what you want with the character of the rest of the space.

This looks like a short-lived fad that will frustrate and completely bedevil the person who eventually has to remove it. If you're a renter, don't even think of going there or you WILL lose your security deposit.
