The safe play is the tub with shower and one sink. This will check the box for home buyers with kids.

We bought our house new in '81 and are still here 33 yrs. later. However, we're done many improvements along the way, I really noticed about 5 yrs. ago that our kitchen & main bath needed updating. In the fall I decided to renovate our Galley kitchen. We both were very happy with how it turned out!!!

After the beginning of the New Year I decided to tackle our main bath in the hall, but really not all that big. I'd planned to put in a soaking tub, which is deeper than an average tub, so first I started measuring. I think it crossed my mind of just putting in a shower, but our master bath had only a shower & I felt at least ONE bath needed a TUB for future buyers as well as CHILDREN or my grandchildren. So I went with a Kohler tub to replace the '80's Fiberglass Tub/Shower Unit & using neutral colored 6 x 6 tiles on the wall, they tiled up to where the the fiberglass unit had stopped, however, they also put in a place to hold shampoo bottles, etc. back in the studs & tiled inside it plus 1" x 1" stacked beige, brown, etc., varigated tiles placed like a ribbon around the whole shower. They also put in two stabilizer bars into the studs, as we weren't getting any younger!! They used 12" x 12" tiles to match on the floor. I choose a neautral grout color as well as new paint for the wall. I picked out a new Vanity with a undermounted sink with a granite top with a mirror to match which went right beside the newer oval, taller toilet. Then I choose a little dressing table & stool that fit within an 1/8 of an inch beside the vanity, & all I had to do was stain it! I picked out an Oval mirror to go in front of that & had a pot light installed about it. I'm still loving it every time I go in there & I'm so glad I did it in neutral anyone who would buy this house after us could put any color in there & it would work fine. Right now I have a 'Tropical Motiff' Shower Curtain, etc. But, I think anyone remolding should follow what was there originally to a degree, or really consider about the resale + their area as kitchens & baths usually sells the house!!!
