Bathroom Remodel Update

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

Many homeowners prefer double bathroom sinks, especially in the master bath. Double bathroom sinks are also handy in children’s bathrooms. These units can save a lot of time, allowing more than one person at a time to wash their hands, shave, brush their teeth, etc. you’ll find that double bathroom sinks and vanities come in a wide selection of styles and materials.

To prevent seams or awkward cuts in highly visible areas, the flooring was laid starting from the bathroom entry side of the room, and from the main entry to the back, rather than from the back of the room to the sill. That way, if there are any short pieces to … Read More

Remember This? Bathroom Remodel Update

The shower curtains on the porch need to go. I am not trying for it, but it looks like a quaint little house. I enlarged it to get a really good look, and it looks like it would only be suitable for a small family. It is so difficult to see what a house is really like without seeing the inside. I am unfamiliar with the HGTV homes, but the concept interests me. Thanks for the question.

Oh how often I’ve read on magazine covers, titles such as, Fantastic ideas to de-clutter your small bathroom!” Or Brilliant design solutions for small bathrooms!” And then, when I open the magazine it turns out I could fit our entire living room into the bathrooms on display, and our entire bathroom into the bath. Agree? Her lovely legs and curvy lines brought in just the right amount of feminity without making the room … Read More

How To Update A Boring Bathroom, Part Three (2)

Before rushing out to buy a new shower head, try fixing the problem yourself. It’s easier than you think to clean a clogged or rusted shower head. If you need to replace, you can do that yourself too.

Long before DIY became a household ‘word’, homeowners were enticed by the idea of saving money on home repairs by doing the work themselves. While doing their own renovations was a great idea, the main challenge for a successful completion of their projects was knowledge. The majority of homeowners had no idea how to properly wire electrical outlets, plumb a bathroom, or frame a wall – all according to code.

Unless your carpet is very worn or outdated, try steam cleaning it before replacing it. If your goal is to sell your house, all you need to do is make a positive first impression. Often cleaning carpets will achieve this goal, and … Read More

Residence Renovation Update!

Welcome to our residence! We purchased our fixer-higher house in the fall of 2007. It was in dire want of renovating, updating, & a whole lengthy record of other stuff (that does not appear to be getting any shorter), but the superb location was simply what we were looking for. Plus, we love a superb challenge.

It’s a good idea to put aside a share of your renovation funds to cover objects not included in your renovation contract, for things you discover you’d like so as to add as soon as work is below way, like extra or upgraded features, furnishings, home equipment and window coverings or for contingency. A separate fund helps you to make decisions easily, without having to renegotiate your financial preparations or reapply for new funds.
