Do you bear in mind Young House Love ? I loved reading their blog, and they had been advocates for renovating in phases. I had always been of the mindset- repair it after and don’t waste your money covering the ugly. But we totally couldn’t afford to do the whole bathroom the way we wanted appropriate now. We could have completed a ‘meh’ renovation on the complete room… or we could renovate in phases. We chose the latter and I’m SO content we did! We knew the bathtub had to go. Our flooring was peeling back and we were quite positive the subfloor had negative water damage also- so that had to go as properly, though we could not afford to lay the tile we want in there permanently. There was really nothing at all wrong with the vanity or toilet- so we decided these would have to wait.
Thanks Kea for the report. I’m gay and I never appreciate anyone invading my space in public, specially in numerous states of undress. My time at the gym is for me. If I wanted to socialize, I can join a group sport and snap towels at my buddies in the lockeroom. Kudos to you for speaking up.
Here’s a word of warning, although. It’s going to take a lot more time than you think. Why? Your bathroom might be the smallest room in the house, but you’re going to have to paint slowly and gently about the window, the tub or shower, the sink, the mirror, the toilet, the switchplates, the wall corners, and the floor. This takes time and patience (and a great supply of painter’s tape), so make positive you keep this in thoughts when organizing your renovation.
I had a vision getting my residence. The bathroom was sort of nice compared to the wall-to-wall royal blue flower print carpeting, the peach floor tile, the mint green walls and dark wood paneling. Never worry, I renovated the whole home. Bathroom was last on the list.
