Welcome to Best Bathroom Gear! The goal here at Best Bathroom Gear is to discover the finest bathroom appliances and accessories around and share them with our readers. After all, spending time in the bathroom is a necessity we can’t avoid, so we might as well make the most of it! Finding new shower heads and faucets for your bathroom doesn’t have to be a chore. With a little help, you might even start to enjoy it. Just be careful, once you start, you may not be able to stop.
My name is Will and I’m the admin here at Best Bathroom Gear. I’m in my mid-30s and I have a beautiful wife and 2 young kids (toddlers). With 2 toddlers running around, life gets pretty crazy. But crazy is good (most days). I’m a physcial therapist during the day, working primarily with geriatric patients in the home health setting.
Working with people in their homes is very interesting. Not only do I get to see people in their home environments (which I must say is completely different then seeing patients in an office setting, sometimes I see things I don’t think I should), but I also get to see all kinds of houses (and bathrooms).
I get to work with folks from all different backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. The area I work in consists of several small, country towns. It’s an interesting mix. There are a large number of wealthy and less fortunate families here. I always find it interesting to see how people set up their homes.
Anyway, my wife and I moved into our current house about 3 years ago. Prior to the move, we were living in a smaller home in a beautiful neighborhood. We both loved it. Problem was, we only had about a 1/3 of an acre and we had 3 sets of neighbors all within about 50 ft of us.
We knew eventually we would want to move somewhere with more space to spread out. When our son was born, we knew it was time to start looking. With all the baby stuff, our house started to shrink. The once spacious, 3 bedroom home (that was plenty of space for 2 young adults) soon became a bit stifling.
Long story short, when it was time to move we decided to sell the house ourselves. My wife has a talent for decorating and I’m pretty handy. I really think my wife could be a stager if she wanted to. Our house sold within a month and we were on to the next, excited and ready for change.
Did I mention we were building our next house? Now we have all heard terrible stories about building… projects going way over budget…projects taking 3x longer than expected…etc. But we were lucky and the house was done on time as promised. We had a great builder.
But this brings me to how my wife and I became so interested in remodeling and upgrading household appliances and utilitites. Between selling our first home and being involved in the designing of our current home, we really started to enjoy the process of finding the best products to make our living spaces look and function better.
In Comes Best Bathroom Gear
I decided to turn this interest into a website for a couple reasons. First of all, my wife and I continue to make improvements to our home and I like to stay on top of the available products out there. Why bathroom gear? Well, when we were selling our old house we found out that people are drawn to bathrooms and kitchens.
They seem to be the 2 most important parts of the house. Well, at least the areas of the house where improvements can really increase the value of your home. The bathroom can get a bad rap sometimes. But there are some really cool products out there that can make the bathroom a much more enjoyable place to be.
Especially for my wife. She loves playing with accessories and switching out things to change the look of our bathrooms. It’s amazing, sometimes she changes out things that I didn’t even notice could be changed… But like I said, she is good. She plays an important part in this website and the products we discuss.
Second, if we are playing around with bathroom gear so much, I know others are too. Hopefully we can help you guys with reviews or recommendations based on our research and experience. There is some really amazing stuff out there and it’s fun to learn about all the different products.
