Tubs are a wonderful part of most homes. They can be a beautiful combination of utility and mood enhancing relaxation spaces Insert a little design into the mix and they can turn any bathroom into a private spa like retreat.
As much as I like to ramble pointlessly at times, the above rumination is actually relevent. I promise.
This past week, after a couple months of planning that followed years of day dreaming, I had our bathroom torn out. I had found mould and frankly everything was in need of updating anyway so this was a good time to do it. Now I actually enjoy construction, but my husband… well he only likes the after effects. So I had the guys come in on Tuesday and by Friday at lunch they were gone.
You might be asking what I could have possibly gotten done in 2.5 days. Well let me tell you. 🙂 (If you weren’t asking…. sorry. You can skip the next paragraph).
I got a new sink and counter, new flooring, and repaired wall board (I’ll be painting the room this coming week). However the most important part of the construction: the tub and shower enclosure were ripped out and replaced with a soaker tub and a pure white argyle tile (!!!). I love my new tub…. I was so happy when it got put in that I immediately jumped in, disregarding the wall board dust and still wearing my dress / work clothes.
Our old tub was shallow and unfortunately the cause of the mould problems. This new tub is deep, very deep and mould free. Did I mention that it is deep? I’m very excited about this fact. My bathroom now has a relaxation enabling tub, one that is surrounded by crisp white and a light soft blue… and this makes me very happy.
