If you’ve ever backed up the line at Baskin-Robbins, you know it’s true: Sometimes making decisions is no fun. Especially when there are hundreds of options (which means thousands of combinations!) to choose from.
Decision paralysis is certainly not limited to the ice cream shop. If you are looking to renovate your home, especially in the kitchen or bathroom, you’ll have lots of decisions to make—and often one decision leads to other questions.
Enter our new St. Paul Bath Suites, available at homedepot.com. These bundled items take the guesswork out of a bathroom upgrade—and also save you cold hard cash in the process. There are 22 unique combos in the line. Here’s why they are pretty sweet.
They Make Life Easier
The suites include items like a linen tower, OJ (over-the-toilet storage) and wall-mount mirror, in addition to the actual vanity with vanity top. These bundles take out the guesswork, which often results in multiple, multiple trips to your local Home Depot store.
They’re Quality, Trendy Pieces
There are some really nice options in this line that reflect an overall trend in bathroom and kitchen design: They look much like the furniture in the rest of your home. The arched toe-kick and paneled cabinet faces of many of the St. Paul suites in this line give them that furniture feel. Kitchen and bathroom designers in the aisles say these “upgraded” looks are getting more and more popular.
Selecting the Vanity Top Can Be Difficult
Vanity tops are often the biggest expense in a bath renovation. Finding the perfect tone of granite or marble gets tricky, too. With a darker cherry, do you opt for a warm stone? With white cabinets, do you try to match or go darker? A kitchen and bath planner is happy to walk you through all of these decisions—or you could just let someone else make them for you.
They Save Marriages
Not all marriages, but check out this scenario from a kitchen and bath planner, which she says happens all too often: A couple comes in. She’s decided on the look she wants, concentrating on design styles and color schemes. He wants to make sure it actually fits, so he shows up with a piece of paper with dimensions on it. In that case, the planner can recommend a bath suite that satisfies that lady’s aesthetic dreams and her husband’s practical needs. Fewer decisions will need to be made. Having the suite already available means there’s less chance for disagreement. Just sayin’.
(Kitchen and bathroom planners recommend bringing at least the dimensions of the room, the dimensions of the current vanity and the location of your plumbing under the sink—the “p-trap” measurement. Consulting with a kitchen and bathroom designer in the store is a great idea–even if you plan to buy a suite online.)
