The renovator who is giving me a price to repair my hail storm damage also is giving me an estimate on the bathroom renovation. I told him I wanted a tile surround. He waxed poetic about faux marble surrounds. I could tell the renovator was getting to my DP, because the pitch involved "ease of cleaning".
I don't know if either of them noticed my bottom lip starting to protrude, or quiver. I don't like the look of tub surrounds. I like ceramic tile. I am half-Italian for crying out loud - why would anyone try to sell fake marble to a woman whose first and last names end in vowels?
I anticipate a debate on the relative merits of surrounds vs tile with my DP later. Any words of wisdom as I go into battle?
