Out of view is a laundry alcove (far proper), which was as soon as fairly messy looking, with uncovered venting and hoses. That was all re-routed, re-drywalled and painted the same sage inexperienced as the rest of the bathroom.

There could also be some sort of rubber gasket on the edges to make it match snug, but I’m undecided. You and Brian are very artistic, so I am confident you may do something related.
