I have somehow got confused with the usage of 'I would like' and 'I wish' when talking about the things which could be possible to improve in the future. I read several posts here and on the Internet, also checked the dictionary, but I am still confused.
For example, the context could be the following: I stay at the accommodation, and the bathroom doesn't have any shelves to put my toiletries on. Could I write any of these sentences as feedback for the place? Could you explain what do you understand with the sentences I have written below?
- I would like to have shelves in the bathroom.
- I would like shelves in the bathroom.
- I wish there were shelves in the bathroom.
- I wish there would be shelves in the bathroom.
I am confused because I was taught that 'I wish there was/were' is usually used about something that is not possible/is very unlikely to happen. The phrase 'I would like' would be something I would like to have or do at the certain moment. Could it be used as some sort of advice and not mean that I want the shelves in my bathroom?
Thank you in advance!
