Self cleaning. I have heated floors in ours, it’s AMAZING in winter, well worth the money! The jaccuzzi tub motor burnt out after a few, infrequent uses over a couple years. Just after the warranty expired, of course.
We had a claw foot tub when I was in high school. I think it’s funny they’re coming back in style. I hated it. It was smaller than other tubs, had a spout you’d always hit your head or knee on, and cleaning under it was a huge pain. But enough time goes by that people forget, and a whole new generation of people who never actually had one can fall for the nostalgia, get their own and learn anew the pains that come with a claw foot tub. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
@katbyter The house I grew up in had one and having to have the shower curtain around all sides was a pain. The heat from the shower really caused that shower curtain to move around in the breeze caused by the temperature differential. On the upside, it was cast iron and held the heat nicely when taking a bath.
@katbyter Grew up with them and still love them. Everything that’s gone around, comes around. The stainless steel fridge and all has been here before only then, it was real stainless steel (you couldn’t put magnets on it). Waiting on the avocado and coppertone appliances to return.
Size. I have teeny bathroom with no counter or even anywhere to sit things when in there. Clean clothes either go in the, normally wet, sink or on the toilet with the seat down. (What a person is supposed to do with the clothes while they use said toilet is questionable)
Both my bathrooms are the same size, small… But because of where the door is, they could only put a 30" cabinet in the master. The other bath has a 60", single sink. I wish they were swapped around.
Things that I can actually fix:
I have a new cabinet sitting in my garage waiting to swap it out. I changed the countertop back when I was renting it and the landlord paid for it. Once I do that and paint the bathroom, I think I’ll enjoy it a lot more. I already have a step down shower. I wish everything wasn’t beige, but I don’t know if I’ll ever redo it because it’s a lot more modern than the age of the house already.
I have an original 1930 purple bathroom - hi @barney! You jelly?
The toilet, sink, and bathtub are purple. I had to buy a purple toilet seat as the old owners had a white one. It looked like a perfect match online, but when I got it, it was much more purple than the rest.
The sink and tub have some rust. I have to look into how to repair that.
I have a bulky pedestal sink so I can’t store much under it (and whatever I store is visible, no under-sink cabinet). So I have flimsy shelves over the toilet to make up for it, which is also annoying. Also I busted the stopper on the sink and the landlord just took the stopper out instead of replacing it, bleh. (Not that I fill the bathroom sink much, but still.)
The tile floor is just resting over older tiles, and a part of me would like to see what the older tiles are like and if I’d prefer them, but the current tiles are just fine aesthetically.
This is all in a pre-war (rent stabilized) rental, so no chance in hell it’ll be redone as long as I’m a tenant here. I hope to buy one day and thus get the ability to renovate but that’ll require a really significant change to the real estate market around here for me to afford it and/or a really significant change in my lifestyle for me to consider not living around here.
