Do I HAVE to have the newer style tub/shower fixtures?
Currently, in our 1975 built home, we have three knobs in the standard tub/shower - hot, cold and in the middle is the diverter.
We are giving the baths a facelift - new cultured marble surrounds and vanities, etc.
Do they simply not make knobs for this style anymore? How cheap and outdated am I being by not wanting what I think of as hotel style fixtures?
It's going to cost us about $1,000 more with plumbing fees to change from knobs to a central one lever up on the wall. It's a budget remodel, and I'm re-thinking spending that.
We are in this house likely for the duration, and won't be having the money to do this again. The next remodel will be to make the hall bath handicap accessible, and we won't do that till it's necessary.
I see spouts and handles for Roman tubs, but nothing nice at all for the style we have!
What do you think?
