The above photo was taken when we did a walk through on the house. At the time, this was the only bathroom in the house and it certainly was not in the worst condition I’ve ever seen, thankfully, but we definitely knew we wanted to update it eventually.
Showerheads, toilets, and faucets have all become more water-efficient in recent years, thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency’s voluntary WaterSense program, which labels products that are 20 percent more efficient than federal standards. Our tests have found many WaterSense winners, including low-flow showerheads that deliver a satisfying pulse while meeting the flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. You can even have a rain showerhead these days that’s low-flow,” says Petrie.
And here’s what it looks like now….I’m in love with the color gray!! We tiled the floor (using the same tile we used in the 1/2 bath) and tiled behind the … Read More
Each project has so many decisions to make; and it can feel like the most challenging decision is which materials to pick.
Another area that buyers pay particular attention to is closet space. Always maximize any storage space you have. A wonderful way to do this is by installing modular closet units. I was able to install a whole closet system in one weekend. Wow. This is big! Not in length but in sense- very professional advice. Loved it and bookmarked it to return for more.
The vanity received a bath of a vinegar-water mixture and a light sanding. I then used General Finishes Gel Stain ($23.64) in antique walnut. I used General Finishes Gel Stain in java on our vanity in Indiana. It turned out so lovely then, but is too dark of an option for this house. I think the results are perfect for the style I was … Read More
Today I’m sharing with you a bathroom remodel!! This guest bathroom is actually at my Parents’ house… they did all of the work themselves.
Holy bathrooms Batman!! This is incredible! I adore both of these and I adore your funky additions like the hands and that utility cart idea is killer (aka I might steal that!). Love everything and cannot get over the before pictures (not sure I would have been able to use the mirror bathroom!). Well done! A regular stove, as opposed to a microwave, is preferred because it is more in keeping with the Feng Shui belief that we should slow down, become more conscious of each activity, and do activities with intention. Changing the hardware of cabinets, for example, can change the look of the kitchen without having to replace the cabinets.

I honestly can’t think of a single person who doesn’t feel better after a warm bath. Being immersed in the caressing water soothes sore muscles, relieves stress, and rejuvenates the spirit. If you’re building a home, you can design your bathroom any way you want it. If you’re remodeling or improving an existing bathroom, however, you might be working with a small amount of space. What’s the answer? Corner bathtubs, like the ones at plumbing point dot com!
Sometimes we can put things off and wonder why did we wait so long to do it. Renovating any room is exciting but can be frustrating at times when you just want to get it completed. Thank you for your kind words. Once you decide on an arrangement, start hanging from the center or largest item and then, if there is more than one item in the center of your arrangement, hang … Read More
