What's a good splurge in a bathroom remodel?

By Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows May 21, 2013

The bathroom may be the most private room in the house, but it’s also a place that can be easily modernized.  And let’s not forget that it’s the one room in the house where non-overnight guests can take a look around unsupervised, behind a locked door. For those reasons, bathroom remodeling is often top of homeowners’ remodeling wish lists. And while a spiffy new bathroom with a new layout, appliances and flooring is great, there’s definitely room for lots of unique little touches.

DIY Network has a great roundup of bathroom remodel splurges. Some make sense and some seem to be things that … don’t. Let’s take a look.

If you want your bathroom to be a relaxing, serene place, don’t include a stock ticker in your remodel. Seriously.
