So there are a lot of things I love about living in a home that was built in 1914. The insulation is not one of them.
Although our humble abode has central heating, it takes a lot to get the place warmed up (read: it’s super expensive), so often times at night, we just turn the dumb thing off and burrow under our down comforter and heavy pajamas.
Getting up in the morning is killer, let me tell you.
Sometimes though, even when the heater’s been running for hours, the house still won’t get above 70, and the only way to get warm is to take a hot shower. So yeah, the other thing I don’t love about living in a home built in 1914? A very small bathroom with the narrow bathtub to match. As temperatures have dropped here in SF, I’ve been day dreaming of a bathroom with heated floors, a huge, luxuriously deep soaking tub, and a towel warmer at the ready so that I don’t spend five extra minutes standing in the shower working up the nerve to turn off the water and step out into the cold.
I think any of these would do nicely.
What about you? What’s your ideal bath taking sitch? Somewhere light and bright, with a girly glam accent like a chandelier? Or somewhere dark and soothing, maybe with lots of natural elements? Would the bath require a city view, or a sweeping landscape? Personally, I’ll take ANY of the above…so long as the tub is extra deep and the water super hot. Some rose or gardenia scented bath salts wouldn’t be so bad either.
