I can 100% promise that you are not as happy to be reading this post as I am to be writing it!!! It’s been a LONG haul but we are finished, people. F.I.N.I.S.H.E.D. Well, except for that one tiny detail called a shower glass panel, but I figured that shouldn’t keep me from showing you how things turned out.
Approach your contractor with many examples of your remodel ideas, including pictures from home decor magazines, links to bathroom design ideas on the web and paint chips from the hardware store. The more information a contractor has ahead of time, the more your bath remodel will turn out exactly how you want it. Use a curved linoleum knife to score and snap cement board to length and width. It works better and lasts longer than a utility knife.
We moved one wall of the shower over onto the tub surround, which gave us a ledge in the shower. Amazing how much more space we have with just a 6 inch row of tile!!! Tub surrounds vary in cost, depending on the size, material, and model you select. You can find tub surrounds for as little as $75. Compare this price to solid surface paneling that can cost as much as $2,500, or to re-tiling, which can cost around $1,500.
She covers the big ugly electric box that some yahoo decided to put right in the middle of the bathroom wall. Boo to bad design! Above the dresser, we had to buy lights. The antique lights we got from our daughter are not bright enough for the dresser. I have bad eyesight so I had to have better lights above the dresser. I wanted to use them but in this place above the dresser, we just couldn’t.
I love it! I am painting some paneling in my basement right now and it actually is looking pretty good…it almost looks like wainscoting. You may want to try a small area just to see if you are pleased with the results before you do all of your floors. It might not be for you or it could be the best cleaner you have ever used! Excellent Lens – I’ve always loved Ikea’s products, never knew how purchasing things like cabinets and such worked, though.
