When you’re investing in a home remodeling project, you want to make sure that the results not only please you but add value to your home and save you money on energy and water as well. These seven steps will help you take advantage of the latest design trends, technologies and products.

The special-order fixtures, fittings, shower pan, tile and glass block panel can take weeks to get in hand, so do the necessary legwork and ordering well in advance. Before gutting the bathroom, check to make sure that there are shutoffs for all the fixtures or a master shutoff for the entire bathroom. If not, buy ball valve shutoffs sized to fit your pipes. Then turn off the main water supply line where it comes into the house from outside, cut the pipes feeding the bathroom and install the new shutoffs right away (see Photo 7).

I vote for white with adding color to the walls and husband and I are in the middle of replacing out Master Bathroom vanity,counter top and facets. I will post about it soon. I love your inspiration photo’s, I also used inspiration photo’s to help me through the process. What ever you choose it will be beautiful for sure. I have become your newest follower and look forward to visiting again.

If you do not get an adhesive that has this temperature compatibility, then the steam, moisture and heat can compromise the integrity of the adhesive. You must make sure that the adhesive can stand up to harsh chemicals/cleansers if these are the kind you choose to use to clean your shower. Otherwise, the chemicals in the cleaner (particularly solvent types) can actually breakdown the glue/adhesive every time you clean and you’ll end up with a broken shower guide again.

Many items come with lots of special features. Sometimes you can save money by not buying those features. For example, I recently replaced the garage door opener. When doing my research, I chose a make and model that would work best for me. I noticed a big price discrepancy however, and realized that the same product was being sold two different ways. One included the keypad that was installed outside the door, and the other one didn’t. I decided that I did not need the keypad, and saved myself $60 on the price of the opener.
