I don’t blame you if you forgot. After all I began the project back in March. If you remember there were all sorts of setbacks. But basically this was the BEFORE”. Brown yucky cabinets, old faucets, a nasty vanity top…you get the idea.
I don’t know about you but it’s hard for me to make a run to the store in less than two hours. Every item you have on site and ready for the contractor is time and effort saved in labor cost. And, I’ll tell you, anytime your workers leave your project there’s no guarantee when they’ll come back. This drives construction managers crazy, too. This time is hard to track. If you choose to have the contractor buy the materials then make sure you have an agreed upon budget for these items in your contract.

These days with the housing market in the dumps and the current state of financial affairs ravaging the U.S. economy, people are looking for value-added materials and projects to increase their home values for one or two reasons. They either want to make it better than their neighbors so they can sell it as houses for sale right now are a dime a dozen or the latest housing market woes have really hit their house values hard.

This is awesome. I would love to do something like that, but we only have room for a vanity that is about 2 foot square. Maybe if I could find a tall nightstand! 🙂 Great idea, and the dresser makes a beautiful vanity for your bathroom!

While I can make instantaneous decisions when it comes to food or PTO stuff or my job and such, decorating is … Read More

Oh, the ugly one, the folks were just trying to beautify a plain Jane the best way they could. Living in an ugly home myself, I sympathize.

Floating vanities are a big part of the ease-of-use trend because their height can be easily be customized. Plus, floating vanities can look more like a stylish piece of art or custom furniture. You don’t have to give up the luxury of soaking in a tub with a small bathtub or corner bathtub. You can find models that are much deeper than traditional tubs, so you’ll be exchanging horizontal space for vertical space. If you don’t have to have a bathtub, choose a small bathroom shower stall instead. I love the inspiration bathrooms you found, I hope you document the change a lot, I cant wait to see it all finished up. Good luck!
