Privacy Please

At first glance, the bathroom in the Dusty Victorian appears to be of the period. Huge copper slipper bath with wooden trim, chest of drawers with marble top, mirrored vanity with copper sink, pump like faucet, antique light fixtures and highly decorated walls and ceiling. All the elements were carefully chosen in respect to the vintage of the house, But also, the previous owner spared no expenses to make sure it would be comfortable and convenient for today's user by installing heated floor tiles and two well positioned electrical outlets. The plumbing is independent to the rest of the house, set up so as to avoid sudden bursts of cold and hot water or loss of pressure in the shower. In my opinion, that's how it should be done.

You have to indulge in a bubble bath when you come over.

I love the tub too. In our first house we had a tub like that. It's the only thing that I miss about that place.:)

I just love those big old washrooms. Mine are so small and I feel like I can't do anything "cool" with them.

We have one complete bathroom and a powder room. In an ideal wonderful world, there should be a bathroom for each member of the family and each one cleans their own bathroom.
