Continuing on our easy and accessible updates tour this week, let us visit the bathroom. Bathrooms are expensive to update, falling in line right behind kitchens as the most common renovation budget breakers. Which is why a full renovation of my 1930′s – 1950′s bathroom is out of the question for the moment. But this does not mean that I deserve a 20 year old toilet that was rusted out and always looked dirty (yeah, gross) and a shower head that was a disappointment every morning. So I got new ones! I freaked out (as usual) and went to Home Depot and bought this toilet, this shower head, and went ahead and sprung for the slow close seat. With the help of the handy fella in my life, everything was installed within 2 hours. I screwed the shower head in all by myself. Proud? And if you rent,
do not fret, you would be surprised how many landlords will pay for the new fixtures if you do the install. Now I have a much cleaner and newer feeling bathroom that also happens to be about 3X more water efficient.
