I don't do trendy, not in my home, car, clothes, technology and as a friend once said, "money only spends once" and he and his Dad raised his son to know this are all correct.  Staying for the long term is what excites me.

Really? Have any of you priced bathroom fixtures lately? $2875 is not a bad price for a quality luxury soaking tub. You would spend 12 grand or more, les than $3000 is not that bad.... or you could spend $800 to $1500 on a tub that would need to be replaced it 10 to 15 years. And anyone who thinks they can "remodel the entire bathroom" for $3000 is obviously either out of touch, or smoking crack!

1. 8 thousand for a bathtub!  I don't think so, I spent considerable less than that and had a custom made jetted tub big enough to two.  So much better than just sitting in warm water. 

2. 4 thousand for a fridge! really? I think not.  wait a year or two and they'll be down to about 1200.00 where a person can afford them.

3. Incredibly expensive and ugly, ugly, ugly.  Buy white ones and paint them your self with a bake on paint especially for that kind of craft work.  it bakes in your oven at the highest temps and costs about 1.50 a sq foot.

4. wimotte must have been a monk.  Where do you store your dishes and cookware?  And it would be a bit$H to keep clean

5. Again with worthless overpriced freestanding tub. 

6.  Brooks faucets are again expensive and very similar ones at Home Depot are around $90.00

7. Amato lights can be duplicated with industrial lights and a can of spray paint in your choice of color for around 110.00

8. More expensive impersonal minimalist crap.

9. eeewww!  and exactly what can you wash in that miniscule sink?

10.  Heaven help you if you drop the soap.  Butt prints on the glass.... hmmmm I feel a new decorating rage coming.

Decorators need to get real in terms of cost.  Seriously.  I've been remodeling homes for decades and this stuff is just useless uninspiring junk!!

I did not realize that so many other people felt the same way I do about these prices.

I do like the bathtub from the Kohler line but seriously folks if I had 2800 dollars I sure wouldn't be spending it on a tub! I could re-do my whole bathroom and kitchen for what some of these things cost, lets get real now

Great comments.  Agree with all of them!  These certainly are not aimed for the "average income" household and only adds to the discontent of those that are attempting to survive on minimum wage jobs.  MSN and these companies have no connection whatsoever with the average American wage earner.  As  earlier posters stated, "bovine feces & butt ugly"!

 "must haves"? Maybe this is meant to create an illusion that tile for $75 is something anyone should want and need?

This article is nothing more than an ad for each company!  Obviously not meant for the "average" home owner!

Very cold, over priced and not practical.  So where do you put essentials, like dishes, children's artwork, toiletries, etc.  Obviously not for the average homeowner.  It all looks ridiculous.

How about a roof over your head, running water, functional bathroom, some kind of heat.

Nothing of any substance, just a bunch of overpriced trappings. Who writes this stuff?

I sell appliances and the Samsung T9000 isn't worth the money. The freezer is so small that you can not get a large frozen pizza OR, not and, a turkey of any size in it. If you use both sides as freezers you then have two very small freezers. Don't waste your money.

I am a big fan of a toilet in the bathroom as well as a shower and a sink. I am bretty sure those are must haves. As far as the kitchen a stove & a fridge would be good.

What about a garbage disposal?  Cosmo Kramer had a garbage disposal installed in his bathtub drain (Seinfeld Season 9, Episode #9 - "The Apology") so that he could prepare a tasty salad while showering.  I think it was a Clarkman....  ;)

Overpriced and butt ugly!! What a terrible waste of money.
Nov 28, 2013 2:39AM
Oh yes! These are ALL "essentential" for any makeover. Who writes this garbage? Gweneth Paltrow?

I stopped watching TOH when they started spending $600 on faucets and were bragging about staying under the 600K budget for remodeling....for the most part this list of stuff is in the same category...crazy money goes shopping for some 'look'

I guess if you can afford that stuff It's fine!
