I guess I am very fortunate. For the first time in my life I live alone now, in this old house. The kids flew the coupe years ago.
After 40 years of yucky yellow 3" tiles I felt the need for a change so I designed a renovation.
Working with the contractor it came out just as I had imagined it. I can clean the whole room in under 10 minutes and there is no grout growing mould to worry about.
It is now a bathroom with no bath. It has a walk in shower and the rest of the room is designed for wet/traditional shaving.
I have never designed anything in my life. The only thing the contractor changed was the paint colour.
She was so right. The shaving bowl warmer was in my mind during reconstruction.

I would love to see pictures of your beautiful new bathroom Mickey. :-)

"....but I like my various rituals.."

I agree. Shaving is composed of a number of ritualistic steps that are not to be trifled with.
I prefer to call them protocols. It sounds much snootier.
Some insensitive yahoos call them habits.

My house is air conditioned so I like a nice warm lather year round.
And, most importantly a hot shower "pre shave" helps diminish arthritic pain.
The shower is mandatory. The pre shave is a bonus.

Coffee mug warmers. Scented candle warmers. Scuttles. What's next?
We wet/traditional shavers are indeed believers in"necessity is the mother of invention".

We did miss out on a good one though. When my brother and I were kids we shared a small attic room as our bedroom. That included a small plastic encased mantle radio. It grew quite hot after half an hour and more of The Lone Ranger or The Shadow or Fibber McGee and Molly. To bad we didn't shave when we were six and seven.
