The Ceramic Womb

…is what we call our “master bathroom.”

Here’s a funny anecdote.. if you google image search “Master bathroom,” this is what you come up with:

Google Img Master Bath

Don’t believe me?  Go ahead, click it.

For the record, most of those gigantic bathrooms are actually bigger than our entire house.  Who has that kind of space?  Also, what are these people doing in their bathrooms?  Hosting parties?  Exactly how many people are in this bathroom at any given time? The entire Duggar family?  I digress.

Here is our “master bath” from our first tour of our home —

“Master” Bath

The wood on each side of that picture is the molding framing in the sliding pocket door (can I just say I love pocket doors?).  Then, following the picture in from the left, you see the glass shower door the pink wall of the shower, and the grey toilet.  In the far right of the picture, just before the pocket door molding for the other side, you see the pedestal sink peeking out.  It’s a little hard to tell in two dimensions, but between the shower wall in the middle of the picture and the edge of the sink, is just enough room to slide through sideways to the toilet.  It is cramped to say the least. In the almost year (holy smokes) that we’ve lived here, we’ve both showered in this room one time each.  It is very cramped.  Also, I am sure you’ve noticed by now that the entire thing is pepto pink.  I want you to be assured that the inside of the shower is as well.  Every surface inside that shower – floor, ceilings, and every wall – is also this pink tile.  Thats why we call it the ceramic womb.  It is awful.

We have big plans for this bathroom, but I’ll get to that soon, this post is already getting huge just enjoying the sights.  Let’s just say, hubs went all hulk smash! on the thing and it no longer has a shower or 4 walls.

  1. I grew up in a house built in the 60’s and the bathroom was the same exact pink. the floors were those small white hex tiles. Anyway I actually like the pink. It is my favorite color. Have you been to the site that is ALL about saving the pink bathrooms? I hope you keep it. Black and burgundy go really well with the pink tiles.

    • Sadly, even if I Had been all aboard on the pink bathroom, we wouldn’t have been able to savage it. In addition to the layout being absolutely absurd, the whole shower was water damaged and rotted. Truthfully, we had made the decision to destroy it long before we learned it was water damaged, though. I could barely fit between the corner of the shower and the corner of the sink to get to the toilet and if/when we ever decide to have kids, I would not have fit!! haha
