I believe it should be in the Constitution that a bathroom on every floor in a two-story house is a matter of liberty. This is really about freedom.
I’m serious. It’s my platform when I run for President. I will win by a landslide.
In our last house, we only had one bathroom and it was upstairs. And at the risk of sounding like the laziest person on the face of the earth, I cursed that bathroom.
Not only on normal days when I was feeling lazy. But when I came home from having surgery and really couldn’t go up the stairs. Or when my toddler was beginning to show signs of potty training readiness. (You try lugging a 35-pound sack of potatoes up 15 stairs.)
Anyhow, in our new house, we’ll have a full downstairs bathroom with a tub/shower. It’s nothing fancy but this baby is going to change my life for the better. Not only does it allow me to use the restroom without going up the stairs, it’s also right off the mudroom. This means that we can clean up when we come inside and can even bathe the dogs without destroying our own bathroom.
We have hit the big time.
The plan for this bathroom is all about moodiness – dark walls with a little pop of kelly green. It’s not a huge room – and I think making the room darker will actually work in the space. Here’s my simple plan:

How do you feel about downstairs bathrooms? Moody walls? The Constitution?
