by jcc1756 / April 29, 2007 10:54 AM PDT

do you really need a tv in your bathroom? i mean i can understand not wanting to miss a sporting event but other than that, just take a newspaper or magazine. though i'm guessing your really rich and can buy whatever you want and probably has a cadilac escelade.

TV in the bathroom not unusual
by bluecollar11 / January 3, 2010 11:30 PM PST

Believe it or not, lots of people have had small tv's with rabbit ears in their bathrooms for years - mostly so that when they get their butts out of bed to go to work at 5:30 a.m., they can catch the morning news. Or, perhaps the lady of the house likes to soak in a nice hot bath while watching her favorite movie or TV show. TV's in the bathroom are especially handy if they do not have a TV in the bedroom. I checked this forum as I was doing a google search regarding the same issue (for the reasons stated above). I am far, far from wealthy - just happen to manage our money wisely and want to keep informed while preparing for our day at work. I'm not looking for anything giant. Just a small flat panel for general purpose use. If anyone has suggestions regarding this matter, please post.

Homes thing recently. While walking through some more expensive homes, it's now not rare to see a big flat screen built in in a master bath. And that's with a remote so you can alternate to see who just rang the front door or your set of security cameras.

Ain't American free enterprise great? One set of people who don't get neglected is luxuries for those who have the extra bucks come much more freely than for working stiffs.

In fact if free enterprise can't easily do it by themselves, government will get involved. It was 40 years before I revisited my old Air Force base area around Oxnard, Cal. Half the old public beach & a good chunk of Port Huenueme Sea Bees training base were taken for a luxurious marina. You see, Cal is so crowded that there are many well heeled folks. The local ones couldn't be accomodated at the traditional ones like Marina Del Ray & shouldn't be expected to travel that far. The large marina is not now being used anywhere near its capacity, but government can be counted on to take care of the rich.

GEE WHIZ, I FELT LIKE I WATCHED TOO MUCH "HGTV"...........
by Riverledge / April 30, 2007 12:22 PM PDT

BUT IT'S hard to keep up with everything! The KITCHEN show alone drives me up the proverbial wall! "I WANT THAT IN MY KITCHEN," I feel so damn poor. Yikes.

Well, I'm poor. I'm saving for an HDTV; a bigger one. I try to minimize my time in the bathroom. To each his/her own.

We too watch a lot of HGTV & Food Network
by NM_Bill / April 30, 2007 12:47 PM PDT

Its fantasy stuff like all those old Doris day movies where the male romantic lead always lived in an apartment that would be 2 million bucks today.

Food network may easy anxiety about making some things thought fancy. However, it's not reality that half the people should think they have a need for professional ranges & enormous Sub Zero brand refrigerators. Some who get a pro range in a new house because they have the opportunity may get a shock at the enormous amount of heat they generate & the fuel cost to provide that. Ditto as to a huge fridge that uses four times as much juice as normal ones.

The gambling impresario Steve Wynn, when only a week from opening his recent billion dollar Wynn Resort in Vegas, saw the installed marble flooring in the grand entrance area & decided on the spot that it didn't have the required absolute top glitz factor, so he had it torn up & some exotic (at least priced) special marble flown in air freight to be installed within that weeks time, to be ready for the opening. Most of us just don't flash money like that. Donald Trump can & does, but what he's really selling is the "Trump" image of the best. I'm sure he drives hard bargains, but what is silly is that he's a big windbag of a fraud.

I'm happy to have space in my bathroom to turn around, but nice or not, I don't seek to maximize time there, just an occasional hot soaking bath for aching muscles. By the way, the house I think was in the 6 to 7 hundred thou area. Yes, it does have glitz.

IF I HAD A WIFE AND 8 KIDS, then maybe the bathroom would be a great HIDE-A-WAY. However, I'm single and need not escape to the bathroom! Then again, I watch too much FOOD NETWORK, but I never talk about it...... oh, well.
