A Year and a Half

That’s how long the average person will spend in the bathroom during their lifetime.  So, it’s my hope to make ours an interesting place.  I’ve spent too long living in a house (and apartments before that) sharing only one bathroom, so two baths are high on our wishlist.  One bath should have a tub, but it would be great if the other had a walk-in spacious shower.  We’ve done a little looking around lately, and we’ve started to dertermine what we like and what we can afford.

The bathtub below is beautiful (and the shower is like a waterfall!), but also waaaay too much money.  What I like about it is that it’s not attached to the wall, and it’s round and deep enough to use.  This is a cool idea, but it might take up more space on the floor of the bathroom than we have to work with.

As for the bathroom with a shower, the design below is pretty great.  The picture angle is kind of weird, but I think the photographer is standing in the shower looking out.  I like the glass, the light, and the interesting use of tiles–it’s an economical use of special, more expensive tiles that is subtle, unlike the third picture down there, which is a bit to hectic for me.

Finally, we’ve been thinking about our sink and vanity.  We don’t like the one that we’ve been living with for years, and we both like the idea of a sculptural sink basin like the one below, but even a raised, round one would be really nice (and we saw some cheap ones at Ikea last weekend!).  I also really like the vanity that is actually a retro-fitted vintage cabinet.  Also, check out the faucet–it comes straight out of the wall, rather than being mounted on the vanity.  That’s a small detail, but one that I really like and one that might be pretty easy to accomplish when building a house from scratch.
