Make remodeling your bath fun, not frustrating. Choose Lowe’s bath installation services for minor updates or a major bath remodel.
If and when you start a bathroom remodeling project, don’t forget that you likely won’t be able to use all or some features of your bathroom for significant periods of time. Be patient, as you and your family may have to utilize your home’s other bathrooms or find alternative bathrooms outside the home if you only have one bathroom. Since the floors were so bad, we decided to tear the walls down, just to be safe… didn’t want any mold surprises!
Tirelesstraveler, I enjoyed reading your remodeling article. You are correct regarding the extent of remodel. Now that I have 2 new bathrooms (close to completion), the existing one will be stripped down to the sub floor, a job that we will not start until a year after our expansion … Read More
If you’ve read any of my Squidoo pages before you may remember I live in a very small cottage in Hawaii. How small? Well, 640 sq ft to be exact. So I’m always looking for ideas to help me save precious inches.
New wallpaper can transform a room. Before you add wallpaper, you need to find out what type of wall is under the existing wallpaper. Usually walls are either drywall or plaster smoothed over lath. You can figure out what kind of wall you are dealing with by feeling the wall, plaster is harder, smoother, and colder than drywall. You can also try tapping the wall, drywall sounds hollow while plaster does not.

In tough economic times, few of us are in the mood to go buy a new home and probably can’t sell the one we have anyway. So, more and more of us are looking for that fresh, new way to bring life to our existing home while adding lasting value that will reap a return on our investment dollar.
Use large towel hooks behind the door for items like a towel, bathrobe, or even a travel kit that holds the essentials. Wall shelves are another possibility if you happen to have that wall space. If I owned the house I woud remove the large mirror and replace it with a smaller one to allow for wall shelves. The above picture is of a semi-detached shed built at the end of the garden many years ago; one side being my DIY home workshop and the other half (with its own separate … Read More
Plants make wonderful additions to bathrooms. They add a spirit enhancing, oasis-like feel. They also help brighten up bathrooms-both visually and on an emotional level. There are many plants that thrive in bathroom environments better than they would in other areas of the home. When adding plants to your bathroom, there is some basic advice that you should follow.
Another hot appliance that’s quickly gaining in popularity is the towel warmer. Imagine stepping out of the bathtub or shower and being treated to a nice, toasty towel! Plumbing a retrofit panel usually means removing the existing shower head and replacing it with a hose or pipe that will feed water to the panel. This means that existing valves will still be used to turn the water on and adjust the temperature, but in exchange it is very easy to do. Adding a luxury bath or shower or a luxury bath … Read More

After that, I’d love to upcycle some old wood or metal to create shelving above the toilet and next to the sink. The plumbing towel racks are also definitely going in. Bathrooms would be first on my list. Adding grid tied solar power and upgrading and relocating central air upstairs would be next. If those were already done, remodel sunroom and detached garage. Thank you for sharing this … Read More
This past weekend, we did a quick remodel of our bathroom. My spouse repainted the walls, doors, and trim. He replaced the baseboard and the vanity, because water took a toll on our only bathroom, and the laminate started to come off the vanity. We have new baseboard that is a type of vinyl, but it looks like wood now that it is painted and caulked. My spouse is so handy from fixing everything around here that he works fast. The vanity and sink that we removed was donated to Stardust: Goodwill’s version of a ReStore. The sink was in great condition.
We live in one. Have been in it for almost 8 years now. It is 45 X 80 X 17. We originally planned to build a house at a later date, but have recently decided to just tear out what we have done and re-do it and are … Read More
To say I’m in love is an understatement. As I mentioned in my first post , this was actually completed 2 years ago, and I can say today that I walk in every morning and still love it. Maybe living in an ugly, unfinished bathroom for 3 years has that effect!
Tile is another material that you touch and feel each day. While you can find quality options for $5 per square foot, super cut-rate tiles may have slight size inconsistencies. The results will be crooked lines that make a bathroom look shoddy. I’d also bought a piece of ceiling tile back in March. I gave one square off to give to Callie and painted the other one blue to match the ruffles on the shower curtain. I turned up the corners with pliers and used glued a metal flower to the middle (to echo the flower on the window … Read More
People are more cautious than ever when loosening their purse strings. We’ve all learned that becoming educated consumers not only helps us get the right products, but get them at the right price. Most people don’t know what’s involved in getting their bathrooms remodeled by contractors, and because of that, they don’t know how much it should cost. Here, we’ll discuss the general guidelines for pricing.
Not surprisingly after a few days of this, Boyfiancé and his dad took it upon themselves to install the new toilet. Fasten cement board with special, coated cement-board screws spaced 6 in. on butt joints and every 8 in. in the middle of sheets. In the back you’ll see the two working tail lights, the license holder with a faux light above it. Perhaps it worked in its early day. Now it just looks pretty. Hiding behind the toilet tank was the original, hideous, … Read More
Part of any good bathroom renovation, especially in the case of a walk-through closet and en-suite combination, will include renovating your walk-through closet. Some might advocate re-purposing the walk-through area, so that the bathroom can be expanded, but this would also entail changing the footprint of the original bathroom. If you already have limited storage in the bedroom, this may not be your best solution.
When looking to replace counter tops, go with granite. Most granite is attractive looking, durable, reasonably priced and is able to withhold hot products. Also, because it is so hard, it will not scratch, blister, or crack. It is easy to clean and does not wear down like other counter tops. I was in shock that it was different shades of blue, and that one of those shades was the SAME as my wall color!
However, there are other alternatives that homeowners need to be … Read More
For those of you who like Curava, now they have a resin based mixed with the cement. It is smooth and maintenance free, unlike its origins. Sales have increased because of the resin base. In fact those who like quartz will like this resin mix. You get the look and it is maintenance free. The one I like the most are the one’s with blue and ice like tones. Other quartz that I have seen have many earth tones, like browns. Some of us need other tones like cool blues, greens and grays.
