DIY Remodeling The 1940s Duplex.

I also like to think of myself as a professional amateur interior designer and furniture expert. I’m quite handy around the house, as it turns out.

Am I correct in my thinking that a wet room has at least a shower head, no defined shower walls, and a sunken drain? It would perhaps be cheaper to make a bathroom like this than the traditional way. Every finish we chose was just perfect for us and this house. And knowing that we didn’t break the bank on this project makes it even more satisfying.

Ted Denning Kitchen And Bath Remodeling

Second, you will need to reinforce any overhangs you have on islands or breakfast bars. The last thing you want is to have your new tiles cracking or popping loose. Then you must lay cement backer board for any tiling project. After speaking with a nice man at Lowe’s, I decided to lay my backer board right on top of the old countertop. You will not be able to do this if your counter has a contoured edge or a build in backsplash ledge. Your old surface must be completely smooth and level and securely attached to the substrate.

There are a few things we have planned for the basement area. First and foremost is a bedroom/bathroom combination. This is initially designed for Abby (soon to be twelve) to have a larger space than her currently fairly small bedroom. But it will also be designed for the possibility of one or more of our aging parents to move in with us. Consequently it will need to be designed in an accessible manner, including wider doors and a walk-in shower (no tub). We’d also like it to have a walk-in closet for Abby and/or the parents. It should be large enough to fit a … Read More
