We Found the One

We are so excited that we can barely stand it.  For months now, we haven’t been able to make up our minds about what kind of bathtub we wanted in our master bathroom.  It is a tough decision AND we have had to deal with our plumbing being “fixed.”  What I mean by this is that our drain and what not is in the concrete… which means it’s staying in the concrete… in the same spot… forever.  We could technically move it, but it would cost a lot and be such a big hassle.

I had to fight J.C. tooth and nail to even get a bathtub in our master bathroom.  He actually wanted the bathtub to be in the front bathroom and the walk-in shower to be in the back bathroom.  That would have been fine IF the front bathroom’s footprint was a little different.  The current front bathroom bathtub alcove only allows for a 24″ bathtub.  THAT AIN’T HAPPENING!  So, that’s the ultimate reason we decided to move the bathtub to the master and add the walk-in shower to the guest bath.

Are you keeping up with all of this?  Do you need a moment to process everything…  Ok, let’s get going again.  I swear I have looked at 597,131,625 bathtubs.  Not in person, just on the internet.  But still!  I’m getting worn out just thinking about all of those bathtubs.  Of course, when I found the one we are going with, it was NO question.  I loved it and I knew J.C. would love it too.

By the way, do you know how many different types of tub there are?  Here are a list of the ones that I can think of off the top of my head:

– Freestanding tubs

– Drop-in tubs

– Soaker tubs

– Jacuzzi tubs

– Standard tubs

– Undermount tubs

– Walk-in tubs

– Tub/shower combos

– Clawfoot tubs

And I’m sure I missed a few!

We were worried at first that it might not fit in our space because it’s so big and roomy.  So, I got the dimensions offline and mapped it out in our bathroom.  IT FITS, ya’ll!  We were stoked when we realized the “bathtub of our dreams” was going to work in our new and improved master bathroom.  This may be my favorite purchase of the whole house.

So, are you ready for the big reveal?  I know you are going to love it.  I personally think that this bathtub will make the room!  If will definitely be the focal point… by far!

OMG, right?!  Isn’t it SO FAB!!!!!!  And the price was on point – $4,799!  WHAT A STEAL!

Okay, I need to make a confession now.  This is a JOKE… a really big, red, heart-shaped JOKE 🙂

Are you kind of relieved?  I know I would be.  That tub is hideous.  Sorry if you have one just like it at your house.  I don’t mean to hate on it, but it’s atrocious.  In all seriousness, I have looked at 1 million tubs and still can’t make up my mind.  It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for J.C. and I to visit one of those bathroom showroom places.  That way we could try all the different types of tubs out in person.  Can’t you just see me walking around in there and wondering where J.C. is, to find out he’s asleep in one of the tubs?!

Anyways, I have narrowed down our choices to two… I think.  An undermount tub or a freestanding tub.  Either option won’t end up being cheap.  That’s alright though.  I don’t plan on replacing the tub every two years or anything.

So, are you mad at me for tricking you about the bathtub?  Do you actually like that bathtub?  Sorry if I hurt your feelings when I said it was ugly.  I was just trying to be honest.  Honesty is the best policy.

P.S.  Since I was SO mean to you today, tomorrow I’m going to be nice and show you the ideas I have for bathtubs for our master bath! YAY!

  1. I LOVE the look of claw foot tubs, but hate how small they are! In our next house I’m thinking an undercount with slate, limestone, or some kind of natural stone basin!
