Bathroom Remodel Park Ridge 847

Rather than trying to do the square-peg/round hole scenario trying to make another door guide of the wrong size refit the mold of the other construction configuration by drilling a new set of holes into a door guide (easily cracking the new guide) – we suggest trying to glue together your broken door guide.

Here’s an extreme close up of the floor tile. Can you see the texture? I ran across this tile at The Tile Shop and liked it far before I even realized I’d actually end up using it. Months later, I brought home a sample for my master bathroom, nixed it, then it sat and collected dust until I had an ‘ah ha’ moment and realized it was perfect for the guest bath.

Use a flexible container to mix up just enough dry plaster of Paris for your intended use. When you are finished with the job all you have to do is allow the remainder of the plaster to harden, turn the container upside down over a trash can, and flex the sides. The plaster will cleanly separate from the container and you can put the container away to use on the next job.

Even a small bathroom makeover is a major expense, so the urge to cut costs wherever possible is understandable. So pick your spots. Splurge on one feature you love that will define the look and feel of your new bathroom—a high-end plumbing fixture in the shower or sink, a special-order vanity top, or a heated towel rack. Paying a little extra for fixtures will most likely reward you in the future. Cheap fixtures don’t last as long, and when they fail they can be difficult to replace.

Pick all the bathroom accessories carefully. Bathroom gadgets made of natural materials, such as wood bathmats and seashell soap dishes, tend to lend a spa-like atmosphere more than plastic or ceramic products do. Try to buy hair and skin products of high quality that come in stylish containers. Store your bath salt in cute little glass jars and line them up nicely. Place a vase of fresh flowers in a corner to generate a lively vibe. And if space allows, put a chair or stool somewhere in the room. You may want to sit on it while soaking your feet in a foot massage tub, so make sure it’s a comfortable chair.
