Small Bathroom Makeovers

This post is a bit of a throwback, to the first house we owned. I’ll be doing a series of posts on this house, because we were able to make such big changes on a small budget.

I’m very impressed with your project and even more on the way you documented it. This is going to be my bible for a project in my son’s room. Thank you very much! This is the first time I’ve found a comprehensive step by step process that I really liked and felt I could do. The bowl was $60, because it came with a stand that made it look like a bird bath… I may use the stand for yard art… who knows.

Whether your project includes moving walls, raising ceilings, adding a whole new bathroom, or just updating using the existing room layout, Jericho Home Improvements has the experience to get the … Read More

Love The Home You’re In

There can be a fine link between therapy and renovate your home. It’s almost like the Japanese would describe as Feng shui. Like the Japanese architecture and agricultural designs. They look to enforce the flow of chi (energy) into their home.

If there is some sort of blockage in regard to a current living situation, then it is best to find ways to make positive effects take hold. It could be through rebuilding a home that often carries negativity from yourself, or family members.

The home is quite like the garden. If you are a gardener, it pays to maintain a beautiful and well-keeped space. This is done by the actions of planting fruits and vegetables, trimming, weeding and mowing the grass – and don’t forget about planting various types of flowers. The same can be said for your inside quarters. Attend and garden to its needs.

Maybe this could … Read More

Helping Your Home Recover From A Flood

One of the frustrating things about floods and water damage in general is that they can be unpredictable. Your basement might avoid allowing in excessive moisture or flooding for years, and then one day you wake up to a basement filled with water. There are steps you can take to help make your flood damage restoration project successful, and get your basement back into shape.

Get Rid Of The Water

The biggest initial threat to your home when there are flood waters in the basement is mold. The fastest way to get water out of your basement is to open all of the basement windows, and then use a pump to push the water out. Remember to utilize a long hose to pump the water as far away from your house as possible. Ideally, you want to get a hose that will reach the street so you can pump the … Read More

Modern With A Vintage Touch Bathroom Remodel

A small bathroom has its advantages. A small space means less to clean and less to maintain. However, a small space— bathroom or otherwise—can also feel cramped. Believe it or not, the right decorating can fix that problem. You can decorate your small bathroom to make it feel more spacious. Here’s how to make your small bathroom look bigger.

When doing a bathroom remodeling project, consider refinishing the tub vs replacing it. If your tub has a porcelain coating, there are people that specialize in doing this for you. These companies will also be able to refinish your tile around your bathtub and not have to take it off. There is no reason to go to the expense of replacing unless there is water damage in those areas.

We opted for this system when remodelling our kitchen simply because unlike the conventional wall radiator it doesn’t take up any usable … Read More

Finally got the carpet installed and we are putting together the gym and waiting on the arrival of our theater chairs. I’m still working on art work for the new spaces and we have to have someone take apart our pool table and move it downstairs but it’s coming along. Horse theme. Many little girls love horses, build her a horse theme bedroom. Horses on the walls. Rather than a doll house, a horse barn on the dresser with hay, a fence and a few plastic horses. A small hay bale in the corner.

The purpose of this hub is to provide the knowledge you need to ask informed questions and hopefully derail the unscrupulous salesman or contractor. All references to pricing will pertain to windows with … Read More

How To Make Shelving From Recycled Laminated Chipboard Furniture

Now might be a good time to visit with a bathroom remodeling contractor who has a showroom or offers bathroom remodeling design services.

Given all of the updating and upgrading we did, … Read More

Basement Finishing Pictures

Laundry duty ranks near the bottom of the list of household chores for most of us. It could possibly have to do with the fact that your laundry room is too small, located in the basement or garage. If that’s the case, then it’s time to consider a laundry room renovation. You spend enough time doing laundry, so the room should be inviting and filled with the latest innovations!

The eyebrow arch is a great consideration when replacing a front porch. The common circumstance is often adding a roof to the front entrance. Many colonial structures and ranches have no roof over the front entrance. This causes undo exposure to sun and rain. More importantly, IF completed with an eye to the architectural design as the photo sample below details, the added eyebrow entrance arch adds a great design element to your curb appeal of your home.

Decorating A Bathroom (2)

When you are planning a remodeling project for your home there is a number of things you need to look for from your potential contractor. This article will deal with estimates and why details are so important.

I have tiled a few floors in the past and done some plumbing and electrical but had never tiled a shower stall or gutted a room entirely. This was a challenging first but I learned a lot to share along the way. A new tub was installed along with the His and Hers vanities. And a taller half wall was built between the shower and tub. A handicap shower unit might also come with a non-slip surface on the bottom to prevent slip and fall accidents, so you won’t have to add a rubber mat. Handicap shower stalls might also come already equipped with grab bars and safety rails to reduce the chance … Read More
