WORLD’S GREATEST BATHROOM
It’s a fact… sorry. I just remodeled my bathroom and it is now the world’s greatest (just ask me!)
Not only is my dream bathroom a reality, it is more functional, has more storage and increases my home’s value. Win–win-win!
Here’s why I crowned my new bathroom “World’s Greatest”:
My designer helped me pick out the perfect porcelain tile. Porcelain tile is one of the best tile materials available for a shower surround. Not only because it is a non-porous material that withstands moisture, but because it comes in such gorgeous variety of sizes, colors and textures. The new tile installed with a jazzy decorative border makes a sophisticated statement in my new shower.
Since it’s so beautiful, we selected a frameless glass shower-door to increase the space which makes it feel larger and more open. The glass panels are supported by hinges (instead of the metal frames my old one had.)
A new space layout suggested by my designer cleverly made better use of existing footage. We are now the proud owners of separate his & hers vanities. I (finally) have my own bath cabinets and sink! Never again having to rinse away my husband’s residual toothpaste or shaving cream before I can use it. Our designer also helped me personalize my cabinetry by including some enviable features.
Thanks to genetics, I always have to blow dry and style my hair after bathing. Now I have a convenient cabinet pull-out installed next to the sink that houses my blow dryer and curling iron already plugged into an outlet added to the back of the pull-out. No more untangling cords and constantly pulling out and putting away these necessary beauty tools. I’m in heaven! We also lost the thrill of viewing my husband’s countertop-cluttering shaver and electric toothbrush. Instead of being out-on-display, the charging cords are tucked away accessible via a pull-up cabinet door in the new counter tower cabinet.
Did I mention the advantages of our wall-mounted faucets? Having the fixtures installed in the wall helps clear-out the visual jumble behind the sink. The new modern fixture cleanly juts out from the wall – making the ubiquitous faucet look like it’s floating, as well as making my amazing new counter-top look ridiculously luxurious.
Can a newly remodeled bathroom create a sense of personal inner-peace while at the same time creating envy in my overly competitive sister-in-law? Yes and yes! I may never leave this bathroom.
