Toilets

Much ado about toilets

Progress in the parlor bathroom has been, well…. essentially none. Part of the holdup is that I can’t decide what toilet to buy. I know we want a high tank toilet. But beyond that, the logical brain and the lizard brain are in great conflict.

Scott won’t let me have an actual old toilet (I already made that argument multiple times and have been vetoed every time – something about the possibility of leaking sewage and such).

So I chose the next best thing:

AntiquePumber

I like the shape of the bowl and it’s the most reminiscent of an actual old toilet. Unfortunately, next best thing costs 1,500. I don’t know if that’s worth it. Is it? Lizard brain says yes. Logical brain says hells no! Lizard brain says, but it has free shipping!

Next up, is this one.

I’m not wild about the shape of the bowl and I really don’t care about the weird scalp design at the base. But also, how often does anyone (but me) notice what the base of the toilet bowl looks like?

Finally, my least favorite option:

Lowe's

While I actually don’t mind the shape of the bowl, I dislike the tank – just looks like someone disassembled a regular toilet and hung the tank on the wall.

And here is proof that literally zero things happened in this room since we took it apart:

Random thing we didn’t know about the house – there was a heat vent in the bathroom, right above where the rim of the original tub would have stood. I guess to keep the bathing victorian’s tushies nice and warm.
