Default Fluxuating temp for primary fermenter

I have my primary in guest bath tub(I completely sanitized area) but the temp in there through out day goes from 70 to about 74 degrees, anything to worry about here? Or do I need to move? Wife not to thrilled about having it in the closest, I love the smell, her not so much that's why I have it there, any advice would be great! Thanks

Not ideal, ales prefer mid 60s.

Gut a rope tub, place vessel in it , fill half way with water add frozen water bottles-swamp cooler, you can search it, very effective and cheap!
