I have no experience with design and decorating, none-the-less we are a pretty handy family. We did an addition on our house some years ago. We certainly are not new to D.I.Y. projects.
One of his sons lived in the house for years until he died. He was known to be a hermit. He did not believe in electricity or plumbing. He used an outhouse, kerosene lanterns and had an old cast iron wood stove for heat and cooking. The house sat empty for a few years and vandals set fire on the floor. In 1963 electricity and plumbing was installed, and not expertly I might add, when a family purchased the house and moved in.
As with all Dun-Rite projects, in bathroom remodels we embrace the philosophy of doing it right or not bothering.” We will not offer plastic tub and shower overlays, nor will we offer to re-caulk or patch tile. Putting a patch over mildew covered, water saturated walls has never been and will never be the way to have a shower… or any bathroom work for that matter… Dun-Rite.” We sincerely desire that your project will serve you for many, many years. So naturally, the owners of Dun-Rite Kitchens and Baths, Dan and Susan, remain very particular about the materials and methods used.
My house is from the 70s. Even though it is mine, the bathroom is the worst place in our home. It is best that I ignite a bomb in there, blow it up, and start all over. Bathroom, sink, and toilet? They all need to go. And so do the cabinets. Interesting article and plenty of suggestions. Unfortunately, there is no hope for my bathroom other than to gut it. Even my jacuzzi is outside! LOL! It’s easier to rent a place and decorate the bathroom temporarily. But if you own a sorry bathroom with outdated everything? Now, that’s tragic! You need to shell out extra to improve it. $$$ But, there is some hope if change my thinking a little and make some changes.
Marble flooring for the kitchen is high maintenance. Marble, I am advised, will stain easily. It is a high maintenance option perhaps best suited to the bathrooms. Yet, marble flooring makes a grand statement. Remember what we said, the cabinets and the counter tops and the flooring are our largest design elements in a kitchen. Accidents happen in the kitchen from cans being dropped to animals and the list goes on. Marble may be a grand choice but with some possible red flags to consider closely.
