RE: What was your best bathroom remodeling decision? (Follow-Up #38)

Glenna, yes I posted some pictures, but my bathroom is small enough I couldn't get a good shot of the curved wall! You may be able to get an idea of how it all comes together though.

Oh, that's easy! The one I eventually got was the Broan (partner co. with Nutone), model # is: 52WH344DPF. This happens to be 34" high, but I liked it's looks and it was quite a bit less $$ than one of its competitors: Robern, which is a "higher-end" company that makes beau. cabs, also. But, their price is around $500-$600, instead of, say $200 +. Go to HomeClick.com and type in "medicine cabinets" and you'll start to get an idea of what's really out there. Robern even makes cabs that are 39" High! You just have to make sure you read the details as the variables are tremendous - ht. X width X depth (4"? 6"?), flush mounted on wall?, surface mounting?, if you want a wider one, will your opening allow it, or is there going to be electrical in the way, pipes, etc. ? Make sure you place it where YOU can reach the top level shelf and not the carpenter's reach!! Do you want only one interior mirror? or two (2nd one behind the shelving)? Doors are usually reversible, but you must take into consideration if the door is going to hit anything when opening it too wide. My hinges open 170 degrees, but I really only needed 90 degrees, but had no choice. So, I have to be careful not to swing the door open with great enthusiasm or I might hit the adjacent mirror. But, that's not a prob. for me; I'm always conscientious about it and it doesn't swing wildly open anyway, it's on the "tight" side so I'd really have to PUSH it firmly to make it hit the other mirror. There are several co's, as I said, that make these extra tall versions - it's all about choosing the details that YOU want and need. Want the sides to have narrow mirror strips? You can do that too. Want lights surrounding it? Want an interior elec. outlet? It does become a little overwhelming - as usual, how far do you want to go and how much are you willing to spend?

Anyone have a river stone/pebble bath mat?

Posted this on Home Decorating forum, but thought I'd try here, too. Does anyone have a pebble/stone bath mat thing? We contemplated tiling our shower floor with the stones, but decided not to, so are thinking of getting a mat instead. Just wondering if anyone has any BTDT recommendations or regrets!!

RE: News about EFI timer/light switch (Follow-Up #3)

Leviton (a large US manufacturer) makes a great electronic fan timer switch. It has four preset durations, and you can choose which one to get (e.g. 5-10-20-30, 10-20-30-60, etc.) You just push the button for the amount of time you want and that's it. You can always turn it off quicker if you want. Most electrical supply houses carry them or you can order them online. Go to www.leviton.com and look under residential lighting controls for timer switches.
