Normal everyday people who just want to get a professional look in our small typical size bathroom there is hope after all. Over 90% of the homes are not mansions or million dollar style custom homes and with budgets for us normal people being a little less than the typical millionaire, we have to be creative when decorating our space. Bathrooms are by far the most used rooms in a typical house and yet they tend to get overlooked when decorating. We tend to look at the main entertaining areas of our home first. Below are some ideas that can give inspiration when decorating your small bathroom.
Don’t have the contractor relocate any fixtures, like toilets and vanities, unless you need to. Repositioning items in the bathroom takes a good deal of extra time and material. You can easily save $2,000 just by keeping things put. One of the biggest benefits of the Shasta Compact’s tiny size is its ease of towing (this written by the one who rarely does the towing – take that as it were). Even the sales flyer states it can be hauled by nearly any compact car. Fantastic lens and great restoring tips for furniture. Love the patchwork upholstered chair, very funky!
The floor to ceiling sidewall closest to the door was removed, and the one by the toilet was turned into a three foot stub-wall. This way it still afforded some privacy for the toilet, but didn’t block the light from the window. The typical bathroom remodel estimate does not include sales taxes, permit fees or hazardous material remediation costs (e.g. mold, asbestos, lead). Great work on this lens you’ve obviously put tons of time into it, keep it up it’s very inspiring for designers.
Once the walls and floor were completely dry, the first coat of paint was applied, followed in just under eight hours by a second coat. Acrylic eggshell paint was used, in a very pale, warm, café au lait color – a perfect background for the grey and rust accessory baskets, and the warm dark flooring that was chosen. Wow! what a really informative lens! Putting plastic plants and flowers can be a bit tacky too. Great compilation of tips. Learned a lot! We also cleaned the excess mortar as we went so the stuff at the beginning wouldn’t be a bitch to clean toward the end.
I’ve used both plastic and metal shelf support pegs in various DIY projects around the home with great satisfaction; with all doing the job they are designed for. They really come into their own when you want shelves that are removable and or adjustable, and they give a real neat and professional finish to the job. It had been suggested that painting the walls a little lighter, breaking the wall in half or one third, and using some horizontal lines would both brighten and make the space appear wider. Suggestions from friends or Angie’s list should be your starting point when looking for a contractor.
