A bathroom renovation is an exciting task. But before jumping to choosing the latest tile or bathtub design, there are some less exciting things to consider so your project turns out just the way you dream it. Because renovating a bathroom can be overwhelming, time-consuming and costly, we prepared a simple 15-point checklist to make sure that your project stays on track and the renovation runs smoothly.
This is great! I just did a remodeling project and I learned something very interesting. I found this place called the restore, I guess it is sort of like a Good Will for home stuff. While there I found a toilet that was just as beautiful as a new one for $85 less, a sink basin that is beautiful for $78 less and other supplies as well. I purchased the items myself, then had the contractor install them all. In the end I saved about $300 that way. Everyone should try to see if they have a store like that. I think it might be ran by habitat for humanity.
Use a glass cutter and straight edge just simply score the glass once, in one clean but quite firm swoop; just like cutting tiles. You’ll know when you’ve got it right because you’ll hear and feel the glass being scored and you’ll be able to see the scored line. If you make the mistake of going over the line a second time with the glass cutter then the glass is less likely to break where intended.
Depending on your bathroom layout you may be able to add a small dresser or cupboard into the room for storage. In my home I was offered a slim, white wicker three shelf stand and I took it. This was my good fortune because not only was it free, but it exactly fit into the space that I had on the other side of the sink, opposite the toilet. It was actually pretty amazing, because it appeared as if it was made for that space. The top shelf holds the extra products, shampoos, and blow dryer; the second shelf holds extra towels and face cloths, and the third shelf just magazines due to a hot and cold vent that would be blocked if I piled it up with towels.
