Say goodbye to the no-good very-bad circa 1918 bathroom.
What? I love these bathrooms. Especially because of the light fixtures. The only thing I hate, though, is the old timey toilets where you have to let the seat down to get to the handle.
I also like that you don’t have the glass doors. (I don’t have to retell the story of why I’m scared of those, do I?) I wanted to wring the neck of whoever used all that goddamn conditioner last time they showered and didn’t rinse it thoroughly. And because the tub looked clean, I got in and was slipping and sliding and shit the entire time. No one would’ve been awake if I’d fallen in there, either.
Dudes, please don’t leave the shower slippery for your roommates? Jesus.
I in theory agree with your love for the circa 1918 bathroom, but this one is disgusting. A) the light fixture is from 2009, it blew around Easter and we had to replace it. B) It has only been slightly updated since 1918, the vanity is vintage Ikea, and the toilet is slightly more modern than the rest of the building. But the rest of the “updating” includes layers of plaster, never touching the tile work (which has caused many of the subway tiles to FALL OUT in the middle of showers), laying another layer of tile on top of the original floor and not sealing the edges (there’s a lovely 1/2 inch gap between the tile and the wall, the tile and the toilet, the tile and the tub… truly sanitary) and C) the layout is SHIT. That narrow area between the window and the shower? Only 12 inches wide. WE HAVE A 12 INCH WIDE PATH TO THE SHOWER. It’s gross, it’s not quaint, and I hate it and I am so happy it is going away.
