Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
Call it splitting hairs, but am I still breaking the commandment if what I’m coveting doesn’t technically belong to any specific person? Because I covet bathrooms. And have for a very long time.
Of course there is also this scripture:
But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1 Corinthians 12:31
And fancy bathrooms are definitely one of the best gifts.
I love big fancy bathrooms. And the more HGTV I watch, the more my dream bathroom takes shape in my mind and, in some ways, the larger it gets.
I love the big soaker tub we have in our bathroom. It’s wonderful to just lie in there and relax. And I’m perfectly fine that it doesn’t have jets because those can get mildew nasty. In my dream bathroom the only difference with the tub itself – it would be heated. Did you know they make heated tubs? The water never gets cold! How amazing is that.
And if we’re doing a heated tub, I wouldn’t mind a heated toilet seat too, because I can.
Of course having a tankless water heater would mean we’d never run out of hot water in the first place. And let’s put a hand-held shower head in there while we’re at it. And if the tub happened to be an infinity tub so I could soak even deeper, let’s do that.
And under-mounted sinks. Because they’re easier to clean. And put them higher than mid-thigh. And storage. Counter storage. Cabinet storage. And since our closet is connected to the bathroom, closet storage.
And fire. And I’m not talking candles. I’d like a fire place in the bathroom. So I can relax in my deep soaker tub with the water that never gets cold and watch fire. And listen to relaxing music. So music needs to be in there somewhere too.
I already have a big fluffy bathrobe. But a towel warmer, that would be cool.
I kind of like warmth in the bathroom, can you tell?
If I ever find Matt Muenster at a store near us, I’m going to do everything I can to get him to come do our bathroom. Of course I have plans for Josh Temple or Ahmed Hassan too.
Anybody else covet bathrooms like that? What would your dream bathroom have in it?
