I always love seeing the difference paint can make! A fresh coat of paint and quick color change in the bathroom has made such an impact.
- We removed the carpeting and installed 20 x 20 travertine tile floors.
- We removed the fiberglass shower and installed 4×4 tiles floor to ceiling for the shower instead
- Removed builder’s vanity and mirror and replaced with a DIY dresser-turned-vanity
- Faux finished the walls and painted
Here’s the before.
When your body is dirty you don’t wipe it off with a paper towel, you take a shower. Therefore, when your rear end is dirty, why do we use dry toilet paper to clean it? Why don’t we also use water? This analogy, along with a trip to Asia, where bidet toilet seats are plentiful, had me thinking. And a few months after that trip, I am now the owner of a bidet toilet seat and I LOVE IT.
Researching my options clued me into the basic features to look out for. For example, some models have a tank for heated water. If the water in the tank runs out, the cleansing spray hitting your rear end will turn cold. Do you want a drying feature: where a small blower opens up and blow dries after rinsing? After reading about all the options, I went with a model that heats the water on demand, instead of storing it in a tank. The model I chose, the Swash 1000 by Brondell, also has a deodorizing feature that sucks the gases in the toilet in through a charcoal filter to help reduce bad odors.
