If for any reason I need a small piece of glass for glass shelving or as a protective surface for a coffee table and I don’t have any suitable glass available I’ll nip up to the local glazier to get the glass cut to size. Ordinary glass isn’t suitable for these purposes as its too brittle and fragile; for these projects I use plate glass with is very durable and safe. If I do need to buy plate glass for these it’s not expensive and can be cut on the spot while you wait.
For a breathtakingly beautiful and unique corner bathtub, choose one made of onyx, travertine, marble, or sandstone. Many of these bathtubs are individually hand crafted from a single block of stone, so no two are exactly alike. These bathtubs cost substantially more, but they last a lifetime and are virtually maintenance free. A hand-sculpted natural stone corner bathtub is like having a functional work of art in your bathroom! See the photo below of a corner bathtub crafted of natural stone.
Neither my husband nor I are handy. We have almost no experience in doing our own home improvement jobs. Caulking is a major challenge for us and just painting a wall can be a problem. Seriously, we are DIY impaired. To make matters worse, we have few tools to get the job done. We didn’t want to spend a lot on tools that would probably never be used afterward. We didn’t even know anyone who could really help guide us in completing the task.
Layout is the key to bathroom planning. Most older homes, pre-70’s, usually do not have the luxury of bathroom space; and will require accurate planning and measuring to make sure all the usual bathroom stuff, like showers, sinks, commodes, bidets, tubs, and other fixtures and accessories fit comfortably in this space; and, without making the bathroom too small for anyone’s comfort zone. These days, bathrooms are designed bigger for the needs of a demanding family, and their various personal electrical appliances; ideally, they should be around 10 x 8 feet, and nothing smaller. Those who bathe love a bigger tub, at least a foot bigger than the standard 5 foot long versions.
