oh, for fuck's sake!

i am looking for a new towel bar and accessories, as we are about to start renovating our bathroom. our shitty, little, desperately-in-need-of-a-makeover bathroom, with it's hideous once-white-but-now-dingy-gray floor tile that never EVER looks clean. WOOHOO! i am quite excited. we've got a paint color and new bath and tile and such all ready to go, we just need to look at the little things like toothbrush holders and shower curtains and towels and towel bars now. these are the things i LOVE, people. little details mean a lot in my book, and seeing as how we are certain to never remodel or redecorate this bathroom again, i think it's worth it to take care in choosing all the parts.

so how many of you knew all the choices there are in the towel bar department? well, i'll tell you, it's A LOT. and, as per usual, i am attracted to the expensive ones. the ones with german names, for some odd reason, like kohler, rohl and hansgrohe. the ones that are the most spare, clean and minimally designed. THE ONES THAT COST WAY MORE THAN A FUCKING TOWEL BAR SHOULD. why is that?? seriously, am i wrong here? heh, i'm sure all the bath accessory aficionados out there would be like, " $100 for a towel bar? perfectly reasonable!" hrm. we shall see how this goes. the one thing i know is that i am a sucker for quality, and if it's not totally insane, am usually willing to pay the price for good stuff. and as *ahem* frugal as the husband may be, he usually feels the same way when it comes to purchases that can be seen as long-term investments. trust me, i'm definitely going to shop around, but i can see it now, i'm in bed bath and beyond or some other huge box store, checking out towel bars and thinking, "wow. this is one shitty, cheap looking towel bar for 30 bucks!" heh. i'll keep you posted. ooh, maybe i should post before and after pictures. that will give me something to blog about!

OF COURSE you need to post pictures, both before and after. And give links to the accessories you're looking at. Inquiring minds want to know.

the sucky thing about this blog design (color) is that the links are so hard to see! i did link to the germanic towel bars in the post. sure, they look nice, but 100 bucks??
