Many do not like to see modern appliances so they find ways to camouflage refrigerators, washing machines and televisions, most often behind panels. Some take this a step further, such as our featured guest bath in disguise where a shower is hidden behind a regular door. In a renovated a convent in Tuscany, the desire for a tub clashed with the lack of space due to the building’s past. So a concealed bathtub was discreetly hidden under a hinged wooden slat floor which swings away when the owner wants to enjoy a soak in the tub. You’ll notice there’s a cut out in the slats so it can can be lowered over the tub controls. This is a compact wet room with two shower curtains and a visible raised tile edge on the far side. But it has a twist. I have to wonder if this also serves as the shower when the floor is in place and I expect so — since water drains right through the wooden slats.
