It is common when remodeling a bathroom to find plumbing problems, so it is important to have some plumbers involved in the remodel! I found this little plant stand at an estate sale in our neighborhood awhile back. I wasn’t sure where I was going to put it but now it’s found the perfect spot. You did a wonderful job, Delores. The bath is classic, timeless and under budget!!! Cannot get any better than that.

This page will help you to understand which styles of décor you find most appealing, and will offer you hundreds of ideas so that you can pick and choose your favorite bits from the examples. Back again to help keep this lens up where it belongs, love this. I am not much of a decorator so reading this is inspiring…if not interesting…to me. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

White subway is best used with a dark color grout like gray or black. Especially in the bathroom because it is less likely to get stained with mold and soap residue. The fridge and sink are both water elements. The cabinets are usually wood, as well as the table or chairs. The stove and oven are fire elements. If people have a tile or terra cotta floor, that would be earth, along with granite and marble countertops. I love decorating (contemporary, clean lines is my style). This lens has some brilliant tips. Well done!

Tape cement board joints with cement board fiberglass tape and thin-set tile mortar. Tape drywall joints with taping compound, sand them smooth and paint areas that won’t be tiled. We’ve been living in a construction zone for the last 21 years! Someday we will get finished on our own house. Now we have to hire out the work which is costly, as you know. So the going is slow. The etched mirror of the doors reflects lots of light and makes the bathroom look even larger, while the new white-figured, semi-opaque material of the shower curtain lends an airy feel to the renewed space.
