I love the lot our house is situated on, and the neighbourhood with a few exceptions is nice enough, but I will say that our downstairs bathroom is, um, not the most ideal in terms of space and location. We looked into various options on "what to do" with the space (too much money to change!!) and one remodeler told me this obviously used to be a utility closet converted into a bathroom. It's RIGHT between the stairs, the furnace room, and an outer wall leaving no way to improve on the area without spending major amounts of money. See the only area we can keep towels is on a shelf by the furnace. It's actually about two feet away, but the picture looks like it's touching. The hole has been cut into the wall so our plumber could figure out what was leaking a few weeks back. Looks terrible. D has spackled it over and it needs painting and then a picture hung over it LOL! Now as to the light. There is a fan in there as well, and the cover is literally disintegrated. We can't find a replacement cover, and replacing the whole thing so that it looks *decent* would be $400. Not happening. :[ With the fan in there as well as the light, you can't just go for some other cover and hope it works. Whatever goes up there would have to allow for air circulation and light AND not go down very much because it's a low ceiling. Hm. But I do have new tile in there and I've painted it years ago in a much more decent colour than the fluorescent blue with the eye-popping yellow, pink and orange NEON flower wallpaper. And the mirror shard that came with the house has been replaced with an actual hanging mirror. We also got a sink/cabinet to replace the little sink that was in there (I had rigged a curtain around to put toilet paper in!
