Spa bath in bathroom.
Long time since I had a spa bath. . . . so I can't help with the selection of the bath...... but the biggest problem for us was our hot water service wasn't big enough.
Reasonable price for heatlamps
If you are not set on heat lamps and your heater can handle more outlets, that might be an option. The price has likely gone up but an extra vent for us was $150 so we…
Tiles to ceiling, just in the shower?
Found out that in our place, they will tile almost up to the ceiling then put the cornice on over the tile to give a neater finish - that's what I've been told at least,…
