Getting rid of clutter will also clear up space and will make the rooms look bigger than they did when they were crammed with things.
Make your midrange remodeling project even more affordable by selecting good-quality-but-lower-priced fixtures and materials, advise the experts we’ve talked to.

When updating your bathroom, don’t forget to redesign with the environment in mind. Low-flow toilets, sinks, and shower heads will not only help you conserve water , but they’ll also save you money.

Bathroom remodeling is one of the best investments you can make in your home. With bathroom remodels, along with kitchen upgrades, you’ll get the largest return for your investment, according to real estate experts. People view bathrooms differently than they used to. Many of today’s bathrooms are elegant, beautiful rooms that are also extremely functional and relaxing. Many are more like a home spa than they are like just a little room needed only for the most basic physical necessities. One of the focal points of any bathroom remodeling project is bathroom sinks and vanities.
Kitchen remodels are one of the most dramatic improvements you can make to your home, and no wonder they’re so popular.

The quality has improved over the years as well. Bathroom sinks are also getting a lot of attention these days. Copper sinks are popular not only because of their visual appeal, but also because of their natural resistance to bacteria.

Like installing a new bathtub, converting or updating a shower space is a major undertaking with a bathroom remodel. If you’re planning to renovate or alter your home’s shower, don’t forget that hiring … Read More
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
Hello loves. It’s always ultra exciting to finally get to reveal a finished project to you, the culmination of months (sometimes a year+) of work. It’s pretty much the day that every designer lives for.
So I designed all the windows and doors (except one window) to fit around the five plate glass sheets that were originally part of a display cabinet in the local DIY store. The glass for the main window, looking out from the home DIY workshop bench, was one half of a double glazed window which a builder salvaged for me when we had our living room replaced with French Doors; the other half of the double glazed window was stored and later used as a window in the side of a small potting shed.
This is the only photo I have of the toilet area of the bath. I added this plate rack, painted Heirloom … Read More

A popular trend is to splurge on granite countertops. Because the bathroom counter is so small, the investment is often fairly low compared to what you’d spend on kitchen counters, for example. If your budget is constrained, you want to convert the existing toilet, bath and shower so they’re easier and safer … Read More

Friends took measurements and started building new cabinet doors. Other friends came to replace the base boards in the bedroom and bathroom. You can have painting parties, but like cooking too many carpenters installing baseboard in a small room is a crowd. This same friend built a frame around the bathroom mirror. Ah, yes Tammy, we Brits know how to do small. But they do say the best things come in small packages! Thanks for your comment and vote up, glad you enjoyed it.
With this in mind we put the finishing touches to the built-in larder e.g. DIY and carpentry, prepared the kitchen walls for decorating, other odd little DIY jobs in the kitchen; and once the kitchen units arrived we put up the wall … Read More
