How To Save Money On Your Bathroom Remodel

Hello loves. It’s always ultra exciting to finally get to reveal a finished project to you, the culmination of months (sometimes a year+) of work. It’s pretty much the day that every designer lives for.

The main bath sports the requisite toilet and a sink with a very large built-in vanity. The bathtub, with its hand-held shower, takes up the end of the room, under a pebble glass, sliding window. The room is tiled all round to with subway tile and bull-nose topper to about a three foot height – very clean and quite modern looking. Kimberly – I lived with my sad sad bathroom (c’mon, I showed the pics) for a long time. And it is like having a dream come true.

Get at least three written estimates that clearly define the project and what materials will be used. Having an estimate in writing can help provide you recourse should something go wrong. There’s also The Home Depot Project Loan. It offers affordable fixed monthly payments, a 6-month purchasing window and no prepayment penalty. In answer to your question at the end of our bathtub there is a very small tiled ledge, and between it and the bath edge it’s big enough for the peace lily. You could probably fit a smaller plant on a bath edge without any additional tiles.

The 2nd most important part of the bathroom for task lighting is the shower, if the shower has a clear glass door then there is no need for a necessary fixture on the shower. Fiberglass corner tubs cost a little more than the acrylic models, but they’re generally more durable. Bathtubs that are a blend of acrylic and fiberglass are also available. Solder a female elbow onto the showerhead supply pipe. After mounting the showerhead pipe, screw a 6-in. x 1/2-in. steel nipple into the elbow. Wrap Teflon tape around the threads of all screwed-in connections to prevent leaks, which would go unnoticed inside the wall.

Living solo and trying to fix things yourself is sometimes a challenge, particularly when you have a limited budget. Here is a DIY affordable shower fix! An integral part of disabled bathrooms is the toilet. Many elders have trouble getting on and off the commode. To make the toilet part of a handicap accessible bathroom, you can use a toilet safety frame. This fits over the toilet and has arm rests that allow the user to place weight on the rests to help them get up. Closed double door… how cute is the little double doors closed? I like the grey-blue on the doors too!
