Hi, I’m Paul! Welcome to My Home Zen Spa!
Where It All Started
The idea of putting up a website came to me a couple of years ago when we were in the middle of a bathroom remodeling project.
Let me give you a little back story on why and how we decided it was time to remodel our bathroom…
It was our 10th wedding anniversary and my wife and I wanted to get away for a few days to unwind and relax. I wanted to surprise my wife with a little holiday to a spa resort but as I was planning our trip, I realized that the surprise was on me! I never realized how expensive a few days of rest and relaxation was! To cut the long story short, I closed my eyes on the price and went ahead with booking that trip because I knew it was the perfect gift for my wife.
However, I also started playing with the idea of remodeling our master bathroom. When we got married, we remodeled the first floor of our home and the master’s bedroom, but our budget didn’t allow us to redo the bathroom. So I thought, a decade later would be the perfect time to start working on it. But I was still on the fence about it because I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to make the most of a spa-like bathroom.
I made up my mind the moment I stepped into the bathroom at our room at the spa resort. It was the most beautiful, most relaxing bathroom I had ever been in, in my entire life! I remember feeling so relaxed just by being in there that I decided right then and there that I was going to start planning on our bathroom remodel the moment we got home. Thankfully, my wife was on board with the idea.
So a few days after we got home from our trip, I started working on the plans. I contacted a few contractors, got some estimates, and started hiring. Well, that was the easy part. The challenge came when it was time to start picking the fixtures and other elements like bathtub, showerhead, sink, and so on. I had no idea there were so many options available! Not to mention the fact that I had almost zero knowledge in choosing the right stuff.
I did my research and learned some tips and tricks on how to choose the right bathtub and other elements. Plus, I also learned that it takes more than a hot tub for a bathroom to become spa-like. The internet was a life-saver for me! However, it was exhausting to open one website after another. I literally had more than a hundred webpages bookmarked on my browser! The good thing about the whole ordeal was, I also picked up some other tips and tricks on how to transform other rooms in our home into a relaxing space.
I decided that after we were done with our bathroom remodeling, I was going to put up a website where I could share everything I’ve learned throughout the entire project.
