Bathroom Sinks And Vanities, With Video Tours

If a comfortable abode is your desire, then don’t buy a farmhouse I live in an old farmhouse on 10 acres in Southern Michigan that I purchased about 22 years ago. The house was built before 1874, which is the date of the earliest plat map that shows a dwelling on this property. We found through conversations with people in the area related to the builder and first owner, that he was in the Kaisers Army in Germany. He lost a leg in the war and apparently his hearing from being strapped to the wheel of a canon cart as punishment for some misdemeanor. Apparently he was a carpenter and he must have been good at his trade because this house still stands after nearly 140 years.

Therefore, instead of hanging a solid colored shower curtain I was delighted to find one that was covered with brightly colored butterflies of …

They saved money on this project several ways: One, they did all of their own tile work. That saves the most amount of money. For the pieces from RH, they would scour the RH outlet store once a week when they’d drive by. You can sometimes pick up pieces for 25-30% of their original price. Most of the time though it’s about 50% off. They hung their own wallpaper too!

If you have heavy furniture or haven’t purchased any yet, it helps to measure the room and its features first. Then draw the dimensions (graph paper makes it easier), translating the measurements into a scale. For example, if you use a scale of 1 inch on paper = 1 foot of space, a room that is 8 …

Bath Fitter

The upstairs bathroom has been out of commission for some time. We decided not to remodel it when we did our big addition/remodel on our house back in 2008. But now that the girls are getting a bit older, it would be very nice to let them use their own bathroom! The space is so so so so small that Andy can’t even stand up all the way in there. This bathroom will be for 3 girls! Yep, that’s right!!

If you have a backsplash in your kitchen that you really hate, consider painting it. Painting a backsplash is not a difficult task, and it can completely change the look of your kitchen. It is also a less-expensive option than removing and replacing the existing backsplash. You can even use a grout pen to paint in new grout lines when you are done.

If you have a significantly higher-valued home, …

Someone gives you an old battered Wardrobe constructed from laminated chipboard you may think it has little value. Unlike real solid wood which can be stripped down, planed, restored and reused, and then varnished, wood stained or painted in finishing chipboard can’t. You can’t strip chipboard down to the bare wood and you can’t plane it other than the edges, and it’s not easy to get a good varnish or wood stain finish; although you can reuse chipboard and if you key the surface paint it. One good reuse for old laminated chipboard is to cut …

Sizing The Mirror Above Your Bathroom Vanity

It was a small house in Flagstaff, Arizona – just under 1300 square feet – and not a fancy house by any means. And it needed a lot of work.

CM – Oooo I hadn’t even thought about the sconces. That’s another good reason to do the straight ones. Although of course there are the curved parts underneath the glass, which is where I got the idea for the drawer pulls. Gah! Repairing instead of replacing some things could avoid headaches and cost less, depending on the amount of time and material it would take to repair them. Transiting from one sink to the next, don’t make one long run way. Change the heights and intersperse a vanity table or a higher cabinet height for other bathroom amenities.

Bathroom Remodeling In Phoenix

When we bought our house, I knew I’d want to change just about everything, this bathroom included. A recent plumbing leak mandated that it was the next in line for a makeover!

A grouping of pieces different in size, shape, color or other attributes will work better in an asymmetrical arrangement. Such a grouping should be hung so that the visual weight of the objects appears balanced. One way to do this without making a lot of unnecessary holes in your wall is to lay out the arrangement on the floor first, adjusting the grouping until you have arranged the items in the most pleasing (least lop-sided) way.

Here is what the Master Bath looked like when the home was up for sale. It’s a very spacious room measuring about 17′ deep by 12′ wide. It has tall ceilings and a skylight. The main problems for the new homeowners was …
