True confessions time – I love watching the remodeling shows on HGTV. I watch them nearly every night to help me unwind before I go to sleep. Which makes it all the more ironic now that I am having such trouble with my own remodeling plans.
We have decided it is time to give our bathrooms a makeover. One in particular needs help, because it still has the light blue fixtures which were popular in the 60’s or 70’s. Given how many hours I have spent watching other people on TV fix up bathrooms, you would think I would know exactly what I want to do with ours. Not so.
A couple of major design questions are stumping me. For example, both of our full baths currently have tub-shower combinations, and I can’t decide whether to keep that configuration in both rooms, or convert one to a walk-in shower. We no longer have small children needing a tub, but future homeowners might, so I definitely want to keep at least one tub in the house. But – which bathroom? The master on the second floor, or the bath on the first floor used by guests?
And speaking of the master bath on the second floor – there is a sharp corner with a sloped ceiling above it at the top of our stairs. So getting anything large up to the second floor is always dicey. (We have had to touch up the paint on that sloped ceiling more than once after carrying something up or down the stairs.) Which has me debating whether to replace the current vanity in the master bath with another large one (my usual preference) or two smaller ones which would have less storage space but would be easier to install.
Such decisions! This has been a part of the stress and distractions keeping me from my writing and my blogging the last couple of weeks. But we have a lull now in between meeting with people and exploring various options, so maybe I can get myself back into my regular writing routine. In the meantime, if anyone has any thoughts for me on the number of tubs or vanities – I will gladly take any input!
