Bathroom Remodel Update

We’ve been scouring magazines, blogs and websites for about two YEARS for inspiration for our new master bath.

When laying tile, it’s always advised to find the center and work outwards from there. The reason for this is because walls are almost never perfectly square, so if you use a wall as your guide on one side, you could end up with a funky line on the other. The other reason is below. We used a combination of laser levels and chalk lines to figure out our starting point.

We also have various lights on different switches. Our fan now has a light that can be used as a nightlight if needed, and all lights are on a dimmer switch so when I’m stumbling around and cranky way too early in the morning and can’t stand full light, I can convince myself to turn on … Read More
