Sizing The Mirror Above Your Bathroom Vanity (2)

Remember THIS ? And THIS ? And then THIS ? Yes, you remember… there were all sorts of updates along the way. The bathroom remodel project is now done! It’s been done for a few weeks. I still have some painting to do in the laundry room area, but generally it’s done.

My grandmother’s bathroom in Scotland in the 60s was very spacious. She lived in a top-floor tenement flat that was huge…of course, now it’s all cut up…probably into 4 flats. A long narrow sink with an end mounted faucet was attached to the wall towards the shower enclosure, and narrow glass shelves were mounted on the wall above it in place of a traditional vanity or medicine chest. old plaster walls were in bad shape from many years of wallpaper and holes and being patched. There was also peeling paint that was going to be difficult to patch …

Sizing The Mirror Above Your Bathroom Vanity

It was a small house in Flagstaff, Arizona – just under 1300 square feet – and not a fancy house by any means. And it needed a lot of work.

CM – Oooo I hadn’t even thought about the sconces. That’s another good reason to do the straight ones. Although of course there are the curved parts underneath the glass, which is where I got the idea for the drawer pulls. Gah! Repairing instead of replacing some things could avoid headaches and cost less, depending on the amount of time and material it would take to repair them. Transiting from one sink to the next, don’t make one long run way. Change the heights and intersperse a vanity table or a higher cabinet height for other bathroom amenities.

Hellooo friends. After seven months of hard work, a few DIY projects, lots of design work and hours and hours of tiling, we’re finally done with the Master Bathroom and here to show off the final photos and sourcing details.

The option we ended up selecting was one that would cost us very little, could be completed within a few days, and that we hoped would result in a look we would like for years to come despite our limited skills.

Thanks for your post. I agree, the first thing you need to do when starting to remodel anything is to get a dumpster. It just makes life easier. Also, don’t be like me, try to use a tile saw when you need to cut tiles. I decided to use a scoring tool because it was cheaper. Unfortunately, this also meant an extra ten minutes cutting tiles and a very sore hand. Thanks again for your post. Your bathroom looks great!

I got up at 6:15 this morning to be ready for the bathroom demolition crew when they arrive at 7:30. How do people start their work day so early?!

Tie all the short studs to the existing studs at the top and bottom with 6 x 11-in. plywood gussets screwed to every stud on the short wall. Keep gussets on the outside of the chair carrier space so they won’t interfere with installation. Install backer boards as needed to support cement board or drywall. Wow!

More than a year ago, I shut the door to a room in our house. Sick of looking at it, wishing it would magically transform into a place of serenity and peaceful luxury, I simply shut the door on it’s dark ugliness, because it was easier than dealing with it.

A handicap shower unit might also come with a non-slip surface on the bottom to prevent slip and fall accidents, so you won’t have to add a rubber mat. Handicap shower stalls might also come already equipped with grab bars and safety rails to reduce the chance for a slip and fall. Skylights work well in most any kitchen and any ceiling type. The size and positioning has to be carefully considered. A skylight doesn’t have to be large to make a big impact – the daylight will provide the impact – leave that to Mother Nature.

In this poor housing market, Quonset huts are popular with new homeowners as well as with retirees looking for an affordable way to move to a warmer climate. A quonset hut is a type of arch-style, semicylindrical steel building that was used in World War II for equipment storage. Since then, Quonset huts have been used for inexpensive equipment storage in commercial and agricultural settings. In today’s housing market, Quonset-hut homes are a popular option, mainly because they’re less expensive to build or buy than other types of homes and can be built in less time.

Some people install wooden floors in their bathrooms. Although it provides a clean, sleek look, the wood will expand and shrink with the humidity, making it less durable over time. The wood will eventually warp or rot from the moisture. The non-slip surface mimics the fine veining of bamboo flooring, and also resists mould …
