Do you have a ‘Honey-Do’ list in your home? Or maybe a ‘I-Need-To-Do-It-Myself’ list? We sure do, and there are some tasks that improve quality of life more than others. For example, one task on our list for a year was to replace the broken faucet in our downstairs bathroom. You know, the MAIN BATHROOM that everyone uses? Yeah, the handle on one side of the faucet snapped off and needed to be manually attached each time you used it. Super easy for a 3-year old, right? Ooooops.
Of course, I decided it needed to be replaced the day before Thanksgiving. We only had 5 house guests there that week, seems like a reasonable time to pull off a plumbing project. 🙂 Moen was kind enough to send me their Ashville Bathroom Faucet for review, and obviously I was beyond excited to try it out.
Thankfully, we got it installed before Turkey Day and as a result our guests enjoyed using a fuss free faucet all week!
In fact, we’re still enjoying it– me, specifically, for two very good reasons (aside from the fact my kids can now operate it without having to maneuver a broken handle like before, YIKES, Mom of the Year over here…):
- it’s treated with Microban, which is anti-microbial protection that resists yucky bacterial growth (learn more about bacteria in your home via this infographic).
- it has Spot Resist, a finish that resists fingerprints and water spots. In fact, I DID NOT CLEAN the faucet for this photo shoot so you can see just how well this works in real life. And by real life, I mean this bathroom sometimes feels like it gets as much traffic as a train station.
You can get the Moen Ashville faucet exclusively at Home Depot. I’m a big fan of Moen and their great customer service– remember the time I fixed my kitchen faucet with a chip clip and toothpick, thanks to the directions of their customer service rep? LEGENDARY.
By the way, people often ask about art in the bathroom. Here’s how I solve the bathroom art dilemma so I don’t end up with cheesy prints of toilets and such: photographs. I enlarged a few favorite photos from my travels in black and white and BOOM. Bathroom art. If it gets ruined, no worries– I can just print more photos.
And now, my bathroom is complete. A family friendly bathroom for sure.
Up next on my ‘Honey-I’ll-Do-It-Myself’ list? Fixing the kids’ closet doors. I wish Moen made those too. Sigh.
What’s next on your home’s To-Do list? It feels GREAT to cross things off the list, what are you going to tackle next?
Many thanks to Moen for providing us with the Ashville Centerset Stain Resist Bathroom Faucet with Microban for review. I was not otherwise compensated for this post and as always all opinions are my own.
