Bath Project

The bathroom off of the our bedroom is a mish-mash of construction styles and partially torn up walls and floor. It's part of the remodeling of QC that we did when we first moved in. Eventually we will tear most of it out, relocate plumbing and electrical but it isn't in the budget right now.

I'm not impatient for this to happen. However, I got to looking around recently and decided that for very little money a few changes could be made to help the room to be a little more friendly.

Have you ever had the experience of having a plastic shower curtain be sucked up against your wet naked body while you are trying to shower in a hotel? It can bring back the horror of the stabbing scene in "Pyscho". Then someone invented these wonderful CURVED shower curtain rods!

I LOVE them. So I replaced the original straight bar that was in our bathroom with this satin chrome curved bar. I also hung a new clear plastic shower curtain to give a more open feeling while in the shower.


Then to complete the mini-make over, I installed a new shower head with multiple
water sprays.



I have more ideas to alter this room for next to no money. I just need to find a few things at garage sales this weekend.

One of the least expensive, yet immediately saves you money, home improvements is a bathroom bidet sprayer. The ultimate bathroom retreat is not complete without a bidet or better yet....the hand bathroom bidet sprayer. The hand sprayer gives you superior control and water volume and if the bathroom was not designed to allow for a bidet(the majority of them) it offers the convenience of installation on the existing toilet AND you don't have to get up and move every time! You will pay for it many times over in toilet paper savings. Available at www.bathroomsprayers.com Blog; http://community.greenhangout.com/_Dont-Say-It-Spray-It/blog/259546/82268.html
