Bathroom Remodeling? Ask And Ye Shall Recieve*

*Disclaimer: By no means should I be any one's go-to source for remodeling ideas.

That said, one smart thing we did during the bathroom remodel was to have these badboys installed:


The tub was shellacked in some kind of teal-to-white sealant, ripped down the old (teal and brown) tiled walls, took out the old bowl, the old vanity, the old lights and mirrors and replaced them all. Everything was painted, polished, and then we added new spigots and some electricity (don't even get me started on thta one). I'm loving the new vanity and the mere concept of a medicine cabinet, something I was forced to live without the last 5 years. Moreover, I can't tell you how pleased I am with those silly little shelves. So much so that they nearly offset my searing hatred for the low-flow shower head. I look at this photo and I hear angels singing (drowned out by my cubemate coughing, but still). So, my advice to you, homeowner about to begin the maniacal journey of remodeling; corner tile shower shelves? A for sure must have. Low-flow shower heads? Not so much.

Oh, and if you're planning on getting a new bowl, best to measure the height of the one you currently have (or another one that you like) since hardware stores don't let you sit on theirs. Don't just have to trust me on that one, try it out for yourself and report back.

I already gave you guys all kinds of mad props in the last post. It's like Miss Jackson says, 'I know you USED to do nice things for me, but what have you done for me LATELY?!'

Those shelves are entirely too small to hold all of your shit. I mean, You have more bottles of shampoo and conditioner than I have hairs on my ass.

What is the use of a beautiful bathroom if the fixtures are not functioning well. You just have to make sure that your pipes and water connections are installed properly and in good condition. with that you can make sure that your bathroom is completely operational.
