It was a small house in Flagstaff, Arizona – just under 1300 square feet – and not a fancy house by any means. And it needed a lot of work.
The bathroom is one of the workhorses of the home. Designed for function, the room gets a lot of use and possible damage of water and mold. Like a kitchen, a bathroom remodel may require a professional. Plan your bathoom by exploring a lot of different bathroom layouts and styles. Build a list of your favorite materials for tile or stone flooring, backsplashes or shower surrounds, making sure to note performance and durability.

When my husband and I bought our house this last May, we immediately knew that our master bathroom needed a complete makeover. We honestly hated everything about it and what made matters worse was the shower was unusable (yuck!). We started the re-model at the beginning of February. We hired a contractor to assist us with removing the old shower and installing a new soaking tub. My hubby did all the other work on his own. He is amazing!!!
If you are renovating a small room, replace carpeting with hard flooring, such as hardwood, laminate, or tile. Carpet in a small room will congest the visual field and make the room feel even smaller. The right arrangement of floor tiles or planks, conversely, can make the room feel larger. Synthetic shower surrounds offer many of the same easy installation benefits of one-piece shower units and maintenance is very easy. Generally … Read More

I’m starting big with the most complicated, most expensive, most functionally significant portion of the remodel – replacing the shower faucet. As I mentioned in a previous post , the tub/shower handles have been a real pain for some time. They are hard to turn, and it’s difficult to make small adjustments so that the water isn’t too cold or too hot (and that’s when the cold water isn’t turning itself off). I have previously replaced the faucet stems, but it was only a temporary fix because they wore out after a couple of years. The long-term solution is to replace the valve inside the wall. For that, I need a plumber… and that’s why this will be the most expensive portion of the remodel.
A good kitchen design is based on a traditional triangle model, with the sink, refrigerator and range making up each point of the triangle. There … Read More

The shower curtains on the porch need to go. I am not trying for it, but it looks like a quaint little house. I enlarged it to get a really good look, and it looks like it would only be suitable for a small family. It is so difficult to see what a house is really like without seeing the inside. I am unfamiliar with the HGTV homes, but the concept interests me. Thanks for the question.
Oh how often I’ve read on magazine covers, titles such as, Fantastic ideas to de-clutter your small bathroom!” Or Brilliant design solutions for small bathrooms!” And then, when I open the magazine it turns out I could fit our entire living room into the bathrooms on display, and our entire bathroom into the bath.
