DIY Repurposed Bathroom Vanities | Home Guides

michael jhon

The only problems you face when repurposing furniture as a bathroom vanity are the size of your bathroom, the item you have to work with, your own imagination, and the depth of your skills. Homeowners have creatively repurposed items for use elsewhere in the home for decades, but more recently they have turned to antique, vintage or even cast-off modern furniture as alternatives to the cookie-cutter bathroom vanities from off the shelf. Repurposed units can often hold one or two bathroom sinks, while hiding the plumbing and providing extra storage. When you score an old piece of furniture for a few bucks at a thrift store, yard sale or the flea market, you can spend more money on that upscale sink or two you wanted instead.

Ideas for a Bathroom Addition | Home Guides

michael jhon

When homeowners set out to do renovations, updating an old bathroom or adding a new one is usually on the list. Bathroom additions can add to the value of a home and provide growing families with more space. The National Association of Home Builders states that adding a bathroom to a single-family detached home has a strong impact on the home’s overall value.

Pick an Ideal Location

Your new bathroom will need water and plumbing, so it’s important to consider access to utilities when you plan for your bathroom addition, as it will have an impact on where you can successfully build. The least expensive choice is to place your new bathroom where there is already a water line, or in a spot easily accessible to your current plumbing system.

Plan Your Space Wisely

Take a look at the location where you want to include your bathroom addition and make

Three local designers bathe in the spotlight of bathroom design. | Step Inside

The hashtag #bath now pulls up 8.3 million posts on Instagram while #bathtime pulls up 6.1 million.

“Baths are the coffee of the evening,” writes pop-culture blogger Leandra M. Cohen in Man Repeller, “and more people should take them.”

The wealth of proven benefits of an evening soak or a hot shower includes everything from improving sleep and circulation, to relief from back, joint, and muscle pain, to strengthening the immune system and spiking serotonin levels. So when it comes to designing a room devoted to the “renewal” of self, local arbiters of taste, trends and blue-sky thinking — Susan Bradford, Elizabeth Henderson, and June DeLugas — work closely with clients to create the perfect sanctuary.

“I begin with lots of questions about the homeowners’ current lifestyle and their needs,” says Susan Bradford. “Being a good listener is key. My clients have to trust me.”

While Bradford always creates designs

Karr Bick Kitchen and Bath designs a modern and spa-like bathroom for a historic Clayton residence

michael jhon

“When you’re working on a historic remodel, you don’t want it to look out of place in the home,” says Janelle Helms, a designer with Karr Bick Kitchen and Bath. 

In 2018, Helms and Karr Bick’s owner, Jenny Rausch, redesigned four bathrooms, including this master bath, and added a fifth to a historic Clayton home. The room’s long, narrow footprint guided the designers’ decision-making, inspiring them to get creative as they introduced modern amenities while delivering a timeless, spa-like aesthetic. 

At the homeowners’ request, Karr Bick added a wet area at the far end of the room, with a full-size soaking tub and dual showerheads. Large gray porcelain tiles line the walls, and white quartz was selected for the tub’s waterfall edge. To keep the look consistent, the team chose gray porcelain tile for the floor and had it set in a herringbone pattern. Helms says this arrangement, with more

DIY Bathroom Mirror Storage Case

michael jhon

I am just slightly excited about this DIY Bathroom Mirror Storage Case I am sharing today.  Ok, just kidding.  I’m giddy!  I shared a little sneak peek on INSTAGRAM last week, and I am so happy to finally reveal the whole thing!  I have imagined it in my head, and the results are even better than I was hoping.  I have always wanted a full length mirror.  It makes checking out the final outfit before heading out the door so much easier than using the reflection of my glass shower door or my blank computer screen 😉  I thought it would be so great to add some function to this new mirror.  May as well kill two birds with one stone! I decided to build a big storage case behind the mirror to hold all my goodies and I am LOVING the results!  Here is how it turned out!

While the world seems to have come on hold, and we are mostly home between our own four walls for the last weeks, a comfortable home has become more important than ever. For several years I have been writing about the importance of only surrounding yourself with the things that you really love and to focus on a more minimalistic and multifunctional home where we choose more consciously what comes in, stays and what goes.

With all the time we currently spend at home, it seems more important than ever to look at our house and the different rooms again. In any case, with the above in mind, quality is important when we make choices nowadays. Whether you have a new home or want to upgrade the home you live in, I think it is important to go for quality products that last, learn about design and show our appreciation
