Vintage Modern Master Bath Remodel

We bought an old farmhouse. It was not in good shape. The house needed remodeling. We had to tear out the old bathroom because the placement of it was in the way of building better staircases. The staircases going to the basement and the second floor. The stairs in this house were like ladders, not stairs.

Based on in-home measurements and discussions regarding the planned bathroom remodel, the estimator issues a budgetary estimate. You really do have some clever ideas that people don’t always think of.

Modern With A Vintage Touch Bathroom Remodel (2)

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term DIY, it is actually an acronym for Do It Yourself…and this tiny acronym has taken the country by storm!

One interesting feature original to the house was the light switch in the shower. We splurged on this, hiring a licensed electrician to relocate it to the other side of the room (and out of the direct spray of water). Believe it or not, flat screen TVs are also making their way into luxury bathrooms. Homeowners like the idea of watching their favorite television shows while luxuriating in a soaking tub. Maybe you’ve inherited a trend from the past, with colored fixtures which you can’t afford to replace. Dark blue? Bright pink? Avocado Green? Never fear, you can make a welcoming room even with these bathroom colors.

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.

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.
