If you are looking to spruce up your mid-century bathroom, you might want to think twice before tossing out the grungy, scummy old medicine cabinet that is inset in the wall.
Even if you personally don’t care about going green one way or the other, the market is trending toward this so it’s something to consider. And there are many budget friendly options for adding a green touch to your bathroom: a low flow toilet that uses less water and saves you money in water bills; low-VOC or no-VOC paints; vanities made from sustainably harvested wood; recycled glass tile surface countertops, etc.
To blend with the fixture color, you might try matching the fixture color exactly. Paint stores can computer match colors if you bring in a sample. Bringing the bathtub into the store doesn’t seem practical, but you might be able to take the toilet tank lid in with … Read More
Our master bathroom is finally done!! It was our most complicated DIY project to date, just because we had to move/add some plumbing. We have never attempted that before. It was extremely hard to get a before picture of the bathroom because it was 2 small tight spaces. One was a walkthrough vanity area and the other was the toilet, sink and stall shower.
And for your viewing pleasure, this is what it looked like a mere 12 weeks ago (although my hairstyle has changed at least 3 times since I actually took this picture). It is Mrs Renau, I estimated it to be around 11,000. with all the changes but I will consider giving you a call when I start this project. Courtney, your bathroom is gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS!

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

Warm air rises, so it makes sense to install heating vents at floor level. Baseboard heating is a good option, but make sure it makes sense for your plan and is easy to tie into your existing HVAC system. For a finished space, you want to make sure you’re not relying on space heaters, so plan carefully. Thank you! We started the project in May and it was completed the beginning of July. Our contractor did everything.

All vanity hardware was replaced. The hinges ($12.98) are not my favorite but they will have to do – it’s a guest bathroom after all. The pulls ($20.79 for 10) on the other hand, I am loving them.

First up are the new fixtures. We replaced all the cheap, builder grade, fixtures with these beautiful. oil rubbed bronze pieces. What a difference that made. Now I want a granite sink but that’s for another post. Because this room is mainly used by my tween daughter it needed a little glam. I found this pewter framed mirror at Kirklands for $29.99! Bonus Buy! It was on sale. Then I found this little silver dish that reminded me of the beach. I don’t know why, but it did. I found it at Ross for $3.49. I also found a pair of bath rugs in a cream and pale blue stripe for $6.99 at Ross. They were on clearance. I’m a bargain hunter when it comes to home goods. I’m a bargain hunter when it comes to everything I suppose.

It’s a bad scene all around, and since moving to the house the only thing we do in there is give dog baths. Now that the downstairs office & bedroom are almost complete, we’re turning our attention to the bathroom, and demo began this week. We removed the medicine cabinet from the wall, took down the drop ceiling, and started removing the plastic shower walls.
