I thought I’d share a new remodel project that I’m working on. The house that my girlfriend just moved into is really great but the Master Bath has some issues. Since they were going to remodel the Basement anyway they decided to tackle the bath at the same time. Here is the Bath as it was when the house was for sale.
The main bath of our 1940s, lath-and-plaster home has several problems, only one of which is storage. The plumbing is stacked with the downstairs bathroom, and eventually, we will have to do a full gut and re-build. The main bath is only used as a guest bathroom right now. We use the downstairs bathroom – the one with the shower – for our bathroom, so we decided to keep the fixture placement until we are ready to renovate the basement.
A bathroom vanity can be one of the most important fixtures in a bathroom, aside from perhaps installing the proper wireless thermostat Choosing the right bathroom vanity for your needs can seem quite a chore, as there are a wide variety of discount bathroom vanities on the market today. One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a new bathroom vanity is the size of the bathroom. Depending on how much space you have in your bathroom, you may opt for a single or a double vanity.
We built a closet in the bathroom to hold towels and anything else needed to go in there. The doors for our closet were in the barn. I don’t even know where they came from. We just painted and installed them, we had enough doors for the bathroom and laundry room. We added tile to the floors and we put in a shower. We also put in a window which I love. I can’t stand closed in bathrooms.
In any home with original wood floors, the homeowner considering home improvement projects, should avoid replacing the floors, at all cost. The older a wood floor is, the less likely it is that it can be replaced with an equally attractive floor. It is much better to refinish existing wood floors. Even in cases of the most extreme damage, laying a new floor over the original one is preferable to removing it.
