If there’s one thing that I’ve enjoyed about home ownership it’s the ability to be able to do whatever I want to my own house. After years of living in an apartment under strict rules to not modify anything in it, I’ve come to love turning my house into a project that I’m able to invest time and money into in order to remodel it in a way that I see fit. This year I decided on bathroom remodeling in Bergen County NJ where my home is. I was getting tired of looking at the decades old bathroom, especially my shower!
When I take a shower I want it to be as enjoyable as possible. I want it to be a pleasant experience; it’s the first thing I do right before work during the week and the thing that I do right before bed during the weekend. I want both of those moments to help me de-stress and prepare for the rest of the day, especially during the week. I went with stone this time instead of fiberglass. Fiberglass is simply too vanilla. With the right stone I discovered that I could retain the heat from the shower which turned it into something like a miniature sauna.
A shower should be a relaxing experience. I don’t want to hop into the shower with just the single goal of washing myself down be on my mind. I want to go in there and let the warm water ease all the tension out of my body. I want to go in there and enjoy my time. When I go to work, I don’t want to feel tense or tight! My bathroom is more like a place you’ll find in a woman’s health Spa but I have no regrets investing that much money into it.
