Bathrooms have come a long way from being merely functional. If you’re considering remodeling or upgrading your bathroom, think about this – a recent survey found the average American spends more time per year in the bathroom than on vacation.
Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.

You don’t have to be a professional interior decorator to understand and apply some basic principles of interior design that will help you create a comfortable and functional home with style.
A great way to set alcoves or niches apart from surrounding walls is to add wallpaper, or even better, to paint those alcoves and niches with an eye-popping accent color. This project is rather inexpensive, since you can use a sample-sized paint can instead of purchasing a whole gallon. Darn. Three months (and maybe a few dollars) too short to take full advantage of this. Squidoo blessed.

Many tubs and showers have ceramic tile on the walls. If so a special drill bit must be used to drill the mounting holes for your new panel as a regular bit will at best do nothing and will more likely crack the tile and ruin it. Just slip them on and slide into all those small spaces that mops can’t go! Perfect if you only have a small area that needs to be cleaned. They are available for men or women and feature various colors.

My parents had their bathroom remodeled over the summer, and for some dumb reason, I didn’t think to blog about it until now. I mean, it was done by the local Buckel Remodeling -which, full disclosure, is my boyfriend’s dad.
and the new door entrance to the back room, now shifted to the left. Cherry cabinets, toilet and free standing shower (no tub since we have teenagers) will all go back here. Do you have a tub in your small bath? Could you get away with installing a shower , instead? A shower stall can take up significantly less space than a tub. I really learned a lot from reading your page. (I am now taking an inventory of my living quarters to see where I can make some improvements.) Thanks for the great info!
In this final example the glass for the two glass panelled doors was salvaged from … Read More
