Get answers to your questions about IKEA kitchens here – and if you have a question that I haven’t answered, check the Links List below for more places to find information, or ask your question in the guestbook and I’ll do my best to find the answer for you.
This is a small bathroom but it needed a complete overhaul to save it from ‘just plain ugly’ – a designer’s nightmare. From the floors to the walls to the lighting, everything had to be done. I wanted to do it myself to save money on labor. This did not help me save time by any means. Little things like these should never be overlooked. Chic, well-chosen faucets and shower heads can surprisingly turn an ordinary bathroom into a stylish one. Brass faucets with sheen finishes are very classy-looking and durable, but the plastic-bodied versions can help you save quite a bit of money.
The cost of your materials can go up quickly if you want any specialized fixtures or if you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible. If you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible, then the material costs can go up another $2,000 or $3,000. Major remodeling which includes tearing down walls, ripping out flooring, upgrading wiring, installing new plumbing, are considered major construction. A building inspector may be required. Major construction work will require permits from your local government. I just love love love this bathroom! So beautiful! I’d have a hard time running in and out of there quickly, looks like a nice place to linger.
Approach your contractor with many examples of your remodel ideas, including pictures from home decor magazines, links to bathroom design ideas on the web and paint chips from the hardware store. The more information a contractor has ahead of time, the more your bath remodel will turn out exactly how you want it. When you are getting ready to paint a room, paint just a portion of a wall first, and wait a few days before you decide. You can avoid the hassle and added cost of re-painting a poor color choice by seeing how you feel about it after a couple of days.
This video is for Conestoga’s high end RTA cabinets. If you decide that refacing is not for you, or if you want to add a few cabinets to your existing kitchen that you will be refacing, this cabinet program might be just what you need! Check out the awesome assembly. No cheap cam locks and best of all, its made in the USA! I’ve recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list.
