Bathroom Remodel Update

We’ve been scouring magazines, blogs and websites for about two YEARS for inspiration for our new master bath.

With a small bathroom remodel, plan your color scheme carefully. Whether your bathroom walls are painted or tiled, you need to stick with a monochromatic look in small bathrooms. In other words, everything should be the same color. Different shades of the same color are okay, but stick to just a couple to make a small bathroom appear larger. I think we can do this whole remodel for less than $4,000, guys! That’s a big deal, because one contractor said the whole bathroom would cost between $12,000 and $15,000.

This bathroom is painted in a light blue which allows the light to bounce and reflect off the walls and give you a feel of openness. I’m glad to see that I’m not doing everything wrong. 😀 I do tend to push furniture up against the walls in some rooms, but at least it wasn’t the livingroom. You had some good pointers here that I will consider in my decorating. I appreciate it. Sign in or create an account so we can save this story to your Reading List.

Whenever possible place your pets in the far opposite side of the house for a more quiet or less interruption. If this is not possible check with a neighbor or another family member who may not mind pet sitting. I am very touched by the beautiful friends you have. That says alot about the kind of friend you must be to them. How great it was that you all were able to organize and get the job done in such a short space of time and it come out so well with so many hands stirring the pot. I voted up and beautiful.

For the ceiling we used the original wood floors we found under layers of carpet, linoleum, and carpet. There was very little space to start with, and the layout of the appliances didn’t help much. The narrow walkway past the tub, followed by squeezing past the sink to get to the toilet made the room feel claustrophobically small. Oh how I envy your bathroom and your DIY skills! I’m frightened to even attempt a bathroom remodel! Enjoy! This shows the paint colors with the fabric I’ve chosen for the curtains (grey with white dots) and for the pull-out couch (a dark grey with a subtle dot texture).
