Before rushing out to buy a new shower head, try fixing the problem yourself. It’s easier than you think to clean a clogged or rusted shower head. If you need to replace, you can do that yourself too.
Another major reason for bathroom remodeling is to accommodate your own special needs or those of a family member.

First, I can’t believe how amazingly beautiful you managed to make that space look spending only $7,000. If I was given that same space and budget, I’m not sure I could deliver a COMPLETE and functioning bathroom at all, let alone one that looks like I (easily) spent $25,000 (which, btw, is the minimum amount that anyone who knows what good stuff costs would guess your bath to have cost). So, my hat’s off to you for pulling this off!
Whether or not you purchase materials yourself or have the contractor do it, make sure the materials are of high quality. Remember that the bathroom is one of the most abused rooms in your home, exposed to heat, cold, constant use, steam, mildew, mold, and a variety of other causes for deterioration. Buying low quality materials won’t pay off in the long run. Watch for shortcuts such as exposed particle board and non-painted or sealed wood. Longer lasting materials will ultimately be more cost-effective.
The pictures are ones my mom took and put on her Pinterest. I wish I had before pictures to show you as a comparison, but picture yellow walls with a ladybug and vines on one side and pretty plain features elsewhere-plan white linoleum floor, plain white tub and countertop, plain wood cabinetry. Not only does the new bathroom look nicer and more high-end, but it actually looks and feels bigger, too.
