Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Hallways (2)

At some point we all dream of remodeling the kitchen while planning meals around a kitchen island with colorful, unique hanging pendant lights.

Never allow bath oils or heavy hair conditioners to be used in handicap bathtubs or handicap shower units. They’ll leave an oily residue and sharply increase the potential for slip and fall accidents. But after the beadboard and marble tile went up and I spray painted the knobs to change out from brassy gold to muted silver, I think this area is PERFECT! The toilet seat elevator helps you convert the existing toilet into a comfort-height toilet. It fits between the current toilet and toilet seat. I LOVE COLORS! Hehe, I had a drab and dull bathroom before I went and painted flowers all over it. Hehe.

If your bath remodelling project is on a limited budget hiring someone to open the wall and restore it while also hooking up the plumbing may be out of reach, but the retrofit shower panel may not be. Or if you are handy at home repair, you may able to modify the hookups similar to what was done here. Today, there are so many design shows on television it is hard to keep up with them. Kitchen Crashers, Bath Crashers, I Hate My Bathroom and many others show us, the homeowners, just what can be done with a decent budget, know-how and a little ingenuity.

Even taking into consideration the retail cost of materials, the average do-it-yourself project can save you hundreds of dollars. Instead of a kitchen renovation costing $50,000 to complete, a DIY’er can experience the same results for a total cost of $10,000 to $20,000. I am a PhotoShop-free photographer. Other than cropping, or adjusting the light, the photos here are untouched, unless otherwise noted. Small corner bathtubs might be round, square, circular, or pie-wedge shaped. To see this example, see the photo below.

Tap shims between the panel and the frame to hold it evenly spaced on all four sides while injecting the expanding foam. After the foam cures, cut away any excess and caulk the 1/4-in. space between the panel and the jamb on the outside of the frame with silicone caulk. Finish off the trim and siding to match the outside of the house. Synthetic stones such as manufactured quartz or other brand names such as Silestone or Caesarstone can offer the look and feel of natural stone at a reduced cost and with less maintenance. The most cost-friendly options include laminate countertops and ceramic tile countertops.
