What To Look For In A Remodeling Estimate For Bathrooms

Changing your bathroom to a modern bathroom style is a great option since a bathroom is one of the parts of the house that not so often changed. Different from other room that can be rearranged or remodeled easily, the bathroom needs to have full renovation in order to give it a different look. That is why finding bathroom remodel ideas for your old bathroom need to be done thoughtfully and detailed so that you get the best result.

Since I already liked the flooring in my kitchen, the countertops would be the last step, and the crowning glory, of my new” kitchen. Of course I wanted granite, or, a solid surface countertop, but there was no way that my budget would stretch that far. After many hours on the computer reading articles and watching YouTube videos, I decided I would tile my countertops and backsplash myself. This was the most involved project in my kitchen.

Small hardware upgrades can do more wonders than you might imagine. Don’t only think about the obvious things, like towel bars, wall mirrors or shower doors. Instead, pay a bit more attention to little details, such as door knobs, cabinet handles and shower door pulls as well. Changing these things not only make the bathroom appear newer but can also add style to it. For example, if you decide to repaint your bathroom door bright orange, it will be wise to also replace the old wooden door knob with a sleek-looking, metal one in order to embrace the modern theme.

Using a string strung from door frame to door frame, across the bowed wall area, we could determine what straight looked like. With the moulding (and later the chair rail) placed against this, we determined what areas needed to be shimmed, marked them with a pencil on the wood moulding, and then proceeded to glue the shim to the back of the moulding. We actually used some thin paint stir sticks that had accumulated over the years in our garage to fabricate the shims.

Nail the bottom plate to the floor and the top plate to the ceiling. Then mark the positions of the shower base, toilet and sink. Lay out and toenail the wall studs into position (Fig. B) and the top plate for the low wall. On the opposite end of the shower, frame a matching 35-in. wide wall (see Photo 14) 60-1/4 in. (or the length of your shower base plus 1/4 in.) away from the first wall.
