Here’s your chance to let others know your opinion about the contractor you’ve hired. In addition to rating contractors on a scale from 1 to 5, you can provide a written review to explain why you liked or disliked a certain contractor. If you are working with different size items, keeping the larger pieces on the bottom of the arrangement will anchor your arrangement and keep it from looking top-heavy. Reposition the shapes until you are pleased with the arrangement and then use that as a guide for hanging the actual items.

Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling

Most homeowners spend the bulk of their time in their living rooms, relaxing during the evening hours and over the weekends. Those who like area rugs tend to install hardwood or laminate wood floors. Wood provides the room with a warm feeling. The most popular wood varieties for hardwood flooring include oak, black walnut, and maple. For some reason I seem to be unable to take final photos of things during this project, so you’ll have to trust me when I say that this toilet had a tank lid and a toilet seat. We’re not animals, sheesh.

Install a quiet fan of appropriate capacity and vent it to … Read More

I find a $350 basic tub works just as well as at $3,000 tub. Avoid jetted tubs. They are expensive. They require additional electrical and permits, and to be honest, no one uses them. They just end up growing mildew in the pipes. Even many builders are now cutting them out. Replacing a bathtub with a spacious shower. A one-piece shower pan is a simple, leak-proof solution to the mistake-prone chore of traditional shower pan construction. Your idea is fantastic and you have great friends who pitched in. You must be … Read More

The shower panel shown here was purchased as a Christmas gift by someone with no knowledge of installation, and was not a retrofit panel. Nevertheless it was decided to modify the connections somewhat and see if it couldn’t be used rather than returning it and choosing something in a retrofit style.

This is great! I just did a remodeling project and I learned something very interesting. I found this place called the restore, I guess it is sort of like a Good Will for home stuff. While there I found a toilet that was just as beautiful as a new one for $85 less, a sink basin that is beautiful for $78 less and other supplies as well. I purchased the items myself, then had the contractor install them all. In the end I saved about $300 that way. Everyone should try to see if they have a store like that.

Best Bathroom Remodel Ideas Bathroom Units (2)

Do have an older bathroom with tiled walls? If so, chances are that some of the tiles are cracked or chipped, and the tile grouting might be stained or beginning to come loose. Maybe you’re just tired of the old tile and want a newer, more modern bath. Replacing tile is messy, time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive. The old tile has to be torn out, the backer board has to be replaced, and the new tile and grout have to be installed. Much easier options lie in tub surrounds.

But it’s really hard to use the bathroom – for me – because there are no mirrors. I am making progress though. Because there are only 20 1/2 inches between the two sconces, traditional mirrors aren’t working for the space. They’re either way too wide, or the ones narrow enough are too short and would look truly goofy in the space. … Read More
