My ideal bathroom would be very large, roomy, with lots of sunshine pouring in from a skylight and side window over looking a garden. It would hold a jacuzzi or whirlpool bath and a separate shower. There would be a set of double sinks and a large mirror. The lighting would be soft when desired and bright enough when needed. It would be so spacious that I could set a small reading chair in it-no, I don’t mean the toilet, I mean a comfortable sitting chair. Don’t ask me why this is important, it is my fantasy bathroom.
If you are just updating a bathroom, you will probably not need plumbing or electrical work. Since this article is referenced to a small bathroom, the costs here are way too high for labor unless you are in Manhattan. $9k for general labor is insane. A small bathroom should cost you $1-2k labor for reframing, concrete board, tile, toilet, vanity and accessories install. Texture and paint should be another $400-600 tops for a SMALL bathroom.
I’ll admit I was nervous about taking the plunge to paint the RV interior. Vinyl surfaces and paint are not historically good pairings.

Ideal for kitchen cupboards and display cabinets, a good selection of shelf support which if fitted properly and used sensibly will securely support a lot of weight e.g. more weight than needs supporting in a kitchen cupboard. The secret to a secure fit for some designs, such as the plastic pegs, is to make the holes slightly smaller than the pegs so the pegs are a tight fit.
