Labor costs may also decrease because paneling is easier to transport … Read More
Here is the original mold damage. (Barf.) Luckily, it’s all been remedied and rebuilt. The whole space is now framed out with new plumbing and electrical lines.
Many bathrooms are small, and because of that most people paint them a light color to open them up. Since white is the most common fixture color, light walls with white fixtures can seem ordinary or boring unless you take steps to prevent that happening. Hah! That’s more than a stab. I’d call that more of a thorough decapitation! Before I get too graphic with the analogy, let me just say this Hub rocks! As many have said, the kitchen. That is the one room that everyone spends the most time in. Supposedly. Great Hub. These are all very neat ideas for bathroom renovations. Renovated a bathroom is a great way to update and increase the value of the home.

My ideal bathroom would be very large, roomy, with lots of sunshine pouring in from a skylight and side window over looking a garden. It would hold a jacuzzi or whirlpool bath and a separate shower. There would be a set of double sinks and a large mirror. The lighting would be soft when desired and bright enough when needed. It would be so spacious that I could set a small reading chair in it-no, I don’t mean the toilet, I mean a comfortable sitting chair. Don’t ask me why this is important, it is my fantasy bathroom.

The upstairs bathroom has been out of commission for some time. We decided not to remodel it when we did our big addition/remodel on our house back in 2008. But now that the girls are getting a bit older, it would be very nice to let them use their own bathroom! The space is so so so so small that Andy can’t even stand up all the way in there. This bathroom will be for 3 girls! Yep, that’s right!!
Plenty of storage is essential in a small space. Before deciding on storage however, it may be a good idea to purge all non-essential items. Once you have cleared out the clutter then it is just a matter of finding a space for everything—and returning items where they go when you are done using them.
