In some instances, certain types of flooring are more appropriate than others depending on room’s function. For instance, tile in the bathroom makes more sense than tile in the bedroom.

We’ve been scouring magazines, blogs and websites for about two YEARS for inspiration for our new master bath.
With a small bathroom remodel, plan your color scheme carefully. Whether your bathroom walls are painted or tiled, you need to stick with a monochromatic look in small bathrooms. In other words, everything should be the same color. Different shades of the same color are okay, but stick to just a couple to make a small bathroom appear larger. I think we can do this whole remodel for less than $4,000, guys! That’s a big deal, because one contractor said the whole bathroom would cost between $12,000 and $15,000.
This bathroom is painted in a light blue which allows the light to bounce and reflect off the walls and give you a feel of openness. I’m glad to see that I’m not doing everything wrong. 😀 I do tend to push furniture … Read More

When laying tile, it’s always advised to find the center and work outwards from there. The reason for this is because walls are almost never perfectly square, so if you use a wall as your guide on one side, you could end up with a funky line on the other. The other reason is below. We used a combination of laser levels and chalk lines to figure out our starting point.
We also have various lights on different switches. Our fan now has a light that can be used as a nightlight if needed, and all lights are on a dimmer switch so when I’m stumbling around and cranky way too early in the morning and can’t stand full light, I can convince myself to turn on … Read More
This was such a hard, but rewarding renovation. We did every little step (and misstep) ourselves after full days at work… demo, stud work, drywall, concrete floors, paint, installing toilets, sinks, faucets, and tile. The only thing we left to the professionals was installing the shower door (with glass that large, you’ve got to trust the professionals)!
The next step was is to refinish the kitchen cabinets. Now you could have the cabinets professionally refaced. Since I was going the rout of frugality, I opted to paint my cabinets and replace all the cabinet nobs and drawer pulls with all new hardware. Because our children were little when we bought this cabinet we fitted a hook fastening at the top. Although this cabinet is very stable, if you bought a similar one that was less stable, you could use a bracket to fasten it to a wall so avoiding small … Read More
Hello! I’m so excited to be the newest contributor here on Remodelaholic! My name is Colleen and I’m the DIY and lifestyle blogger behind Lemon Thistle – home to DIY, home decor, parties and babies. Before I share my bathroom renovation, let’s get to know each other, shall we? I’m a mama to 18 month old twins, I love to party, and my awesome hubby and I are working our way through renovations on our new home. Oh, and we’re operating on a budget too. Nice to meet you!
Moisture not only breeds mold and mildew, it can take a toll on finishes and painted surfaces. A bathroom fan is the best defense. Guidelines from the National Kitchen and Bath Association call for a ducted system that’s at least 50 cubic feet per minute, though you may need twice as much ventilation if the space is larger than 100 square … Read More

Pale creamy yellow paint on the walls and fresh white trim completed the makeover, turning what was once a cramped, awkward space into a beautiful and stylish, totally successful, small bathroom renovation. We also replaced the old shutter style medicine cabinet with a new mirrored one Mirrors are always your friends! They make a space feel larger and brighter, use them whenever possible! Plan, plan, and plan again. Planning is critical because once the process starts it becomes difficult or costly when making changes.
I’m not the most confident driver. Part of my love for the Shasta Compact is that 1) it was within the towing capacity of my small RV -the Toyota Rav4 , and 2) its compactness makes towing a bit less intimidating. When planning a … Read More
Through failure we learn to succeed! This is a blog about fighting back. It’s about picking yourself up off the floor, dusting yourself off, and getting right back in there. It’s about holding yourself accountable, having the right mindset, and learning to live a healthy lifestyle.
Losing the entire floor also meant losing all the plumbing that was underneath the house as well. All the existing bathroom fixtures, bathtub, sink and commode were useless without extensive replacement plumbing and new fixtures. Yes, I like corner vanities too though sometimes they’re a bit too small for my liking. Still, it really does depend on available space. Changing the rug or towels in the bathroom, or a new bedspread or curtains in the bedroom can change of the look of the room without any remodeling whatsoever.
If you are tech-savvy, you might want to invest in floor plan software that will make … Read More
Back around to curbside. The louvered windows all work, and the storage cabinet holds the vintage leveling jacks that came with her.
Skylights work well in most any kitchen and any ceiling type. The size and positioning has to be carefully considered. A skylight doesn’t have to be large to make a big impact – the daylight will provide the impact – leave that to Mother Nature. Good idea for a closet in the bathroom. I have one and love the storage there and that items are hidden in there too. Good for you doing this reno!
A few things all old house lovers are familiar with: Drafty windows, less-than-perfect plumbing, squeaky floors—and small bathrooms. While new home baths have nearly doubled in size over the past 30 years, old home bathrooms average about 5- by 8-feet. For instance, if you were interested in changing the location of the toilet, … Read More

Things to Remember: Only choose water-resistant paints, designed specifically for bathrooms. For better results, dust and clean the walls thoroughly before painting. Also, remember to remove all the accessories, towels and toothbrushes out of the bathroom to avoid paint splatters. CM – Oooo I hadn’t even thought about the sconces. That’s another good reason to do the straight ones. Although of course there are the curved parts underneath the glass, which is where I got the idea for the drawer pulls. Gah!
Another thing to consider is the moisture. Since mold and mildew develop easily in a bathroom, and humidity … Read More
I had talked about it several times.. and finally convinced Mr.Z and our contractor/cabinet maker son, that we needed to remodel the bathroom now and make it accessible for the elderly and handicap.
As a rule of thumb, artwork should be placed no more than five to nine inches above a sofa and no more than seven to ten inches above a table. The placement of your artwork should also relate to its surroundings. As a guideline for proportion, one or more pictures (including mirrors or other wall décor) should cover about 2/3 of the wall space above the piece of furniture. For example, if you have a 6 foot wide sofa, plan on a single picture or an arrangement that is about 4 feet wide and centered above the sofa.
Wow that is definitely a beautiful shower door! I have been wanting a new one like that for quite … Read More
