As one of the most used rooms in your house, it’s important to remember that a bathroom’s design can significantly contribute to the resell value of a home. When renovating a bathroom, you should keep in mind the needs of your family as well as those of future buyers. For instance, while you may not feel the need to include a tub, some homeowners do see this as a necessity. So, it’s still wise to install at least one in the house.
First, are you also replacing the shower arm? You need to replace the shower arm first. Go to the bottom of this article to see how. But with a bathroom renovation, you want to be careful about getting in over your head, especially if your home has only one bathroom. An over-the-door towel hanger can be used to hang hand towels and bath towels. For washcloths, roll them up and place them in a basket on the back of the toilet.
Good lens. Thanks. I used to have an IKEA kitchen a while back, and they came a long way in the last fifteen years. The quality and the design have improved dramatically. Shop around for tile. You can find nice floor and wall tile for $1 to $2 per square foot. Use that less expensive tile for most of the work, and then incorporate luxury tile as accents. Give me 100 grand and I’d toss in better insulation, hardwood floors on the main floor, built-in bookcases, new siding, and a bigger deck in the back.
People who live in apartments may not have the options to renovate as extensively and as creatively as you did. So, bravo to that. You’re quite detailed about your renovations, and I like that. It’s always good to read about people who take their home renovations into their own hands, instead of relying on blind faith (a decorator and a contractor). Good stuff. I’m into home improvement myself.
After: This remodel started with a full demolition, Beasley says, because the shower, sink and tub all were getting replaced. Because the bathroom’s layout remained practically the same, no major (read: expensive) plumbing or electrical work needed to be done. Once the homeowners chose new materials and finishes, it was just a matter of installing the upgraded fixtures, which included a his-and-her vanity area with recessed lighting and a storage cabinet with a shelf for a small TV.
