Having in-unit laundry machines is a luxury right up there with having a dishwasher, a flood of natural light and perhaps parking. When you get a stain, have guests over or just plain need something clean to wear, there's nothing better than being able to do a quick load without having to schelp all your stuff to the laundromat.

If you watched the movie It's Complicated, you probably noticed the fabulous matte-black clawfoot tub where Meryl Streep soaks and banters with her ex. I wanted that tub the second I saw it.
