Recycling Salvaged Window Glass For DIY Projects (2)

In some instances, certain types of flooring are more appropriate than others depending on room’s function. For instance, tile in the bathroom makes more sense than tile in the bedroom.

My total costs have been estimated at 24. I was a bit taken back at that price. Price includes tile floor with heat under it, tile walls, new shower. keeping old bath, replacing the cabinets with store bought type, replacing new toilet. My bath is large with 2 sinks and good cabinet space. I asked to have some time to consider cost. Will discuss with Cook mid next week. He estimates work to be completed by Christmas.

Another key piece of the bathroom is the vanity. Out-of-the-box vanities are available online and at many home improvement stores and will be the most affordable option. However, for a more custom look, you can piece together a vanity with cabinetry topped with a material of your choice and a sink. When looking at vanities, storage will likely be a key part of the decision.

This was an instructional video for a DIY wainscoting project. This was another option we considered. We decided we preferred a different look for our project, but some may find this to their liking. We weren’t sure about our ability to deal with the baseboard, and because we wanted it higher on the wall it might get costly. Another wainscoting idea to make such a design less angular would be to put some shaped moulding around the inside of the boxes that are created using this technique. I’ve seen this done elsewhere and it creates a very nice look.

New fixtures should use as little water as possible. Choose low-flow showerheads, high-efficiency toilets and water-conserving aerators on sink faucets. If a water heater needs replacement, pick a high-efficiency model and consider a tankless heater or a hot-water circulation option if the main water heater is some distance away from the bathroom. Include a plumbing access door for shower valves.
