The One Thing I Would Change...

...About my house????

That is what a girl I work with asked me today and I knew my response before she even finished the question! I have always said that this would be the one thing I would change if I could from the moment I looked at the house the first time! What is it?

Well, not just the tub, but the entire master bathroom. It is narrow in places and has kind of a strange layout, but the one thing I dislike the most about the bathroom is the tub! I know that many people will think that I am crazy, but I don't like it at all! There are a few occasions that I do enjoy taking a bath, but they are few and far between. It's not that I really dislike the TUB itself, but I HATE HATE HATE cleaning it! From the picture it looks so nice and relaxing and wonderful right? Well, it is and I did enjoy the bath this night, but tonight on the other hand, I cleaned it and was reminded why I hate it :) I am not a tall person (shall we say that I am vertically challeneged!?). Well, this also affects how far I can reach because my arms are shorter. So you can imagine that it is not very easy for me to reach down into the bottom of the tub or even just over to the far side of the top of it! Maybe it is just the placement of where it is in my is just behind the sink and mirror which is where I get ready in the morning/blow dry my hair. Where do you think all my loose hairs are being blown? You guessed it! In the tub! This makes it a huge chore to clean this thing! I come very close to cussing every single time I go to clean this thing!
So how would I change it? I would put in a huge walk in shower instead. I would change the layout and make one big shower instead and I would add another sink since we just have the one. I think that having a tub like this in a similar spot in a future house would be a deal breaker for me!

I have a garden tub on my wish list for our next house (hopefully one day). I don't take baths but I want to. I just don't want to sit in the tub where we stand to take showers. I will have to remember your post if the day comes that we start looking for a new house! Love ya!

I think I would like it better if I was a little taller and could reach the far side better and if it was in a different location!
