  • 1950's original black & white tile, Black and white 1950's tile. I assume that the floor tile was also white at one time, and has yellowed with age. The The floor tile desperately needs regrouting, but because it just doesn't match the rest of the tile, we will probably rip it up. The wall tile is in excellent condition, but could probably use regrouting in the shower area. 

The bath tub is old, cold enamel over cast iron and is very pitted and scratched. Wondering if reglazing it is an option I should consider. 

We have a problem with mildew on the ceilings and wall in the shower area, and peeling paint on the rest of the ceiling because there is no exhaust fan. We want to get one installed, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Also, the shower head sprays water onto the painted, untiled part of the wall in the shower. I'm not sure what to do to fix this problem - add more tile that probably won't match the old all the way up?

You can't see the lighting in the photo, but it consists of two white outdoor sconces flanking either side of a very simple silver-framed medicine cabinet (these can both be seen in the earlier "before" picture). Not sure how to replace these without and electrician and someone to patch up the walls after. Behind the door (on the left) is a nook where I have a "shabby chic" bookshelf for storing stuff. Since it's usually behind the door, it doesn't get seen much, but it isn't really large enough to serve a purpose for much else. 

Since taking this picture, I have gotten rid of the fish tooth brush holder, and moved the cabinet to the other side of the sink.

I hate the seashell-shaped sink basin, but DH picked it out when we first bought the house and needed to update the vanity on a low budget. I felt at the time that I needed to allow him to have some decorating input. I have plans for a new, sleek toilet that he seems to be interested in having put in, but other than that he is reluctant to spend money on this space before others. Since this is our main bath and the only working shower in the house, I feel it is in dire need of help.

Finally, I can't decide what color is best on the walls in there. I keep trying to find something that ties the ivory/butter color of the floor in with the white, but can never seem to get it quite right., Bathrooms Design

  • My 1950's kitchen, Our entire kitchen is covered with pale yellow and brown tiles.  While it is keeping with the character of our 1920's home, I would like to update this space somehow.  Our cabinets have been painted white but I'm not crazy about the hardware and would like to update our cabinets without getting new ones...possibly with a bright fun paint color?, Kitchens Design

  • Totally Tile Bathroom!, This is our main, outdated bathroom.  It is your typical 50's bathroom covered in colorful tile.  I hate how the tub doesn't match the sink or toliet.  Someday we would like to turn the bathroom closet into a glass stall shower and put in a jetted tub.  Also we would like a double sink vanity.  Oh and minimal tile!, Bathrooms Design

  • Finally a floor!  , Small bath in 1949 brick ranch, 'updated' 1980's vanity, floor tiles coming up due to water seeping from somewhere, can't keep up with mold and mirrors everywhere!  Well, it took a long time to save up for the tile and labor but it is finally done.  It is not what I envision as my dream bath, but it is phase one of probably three., Bathrooms Design

  • Preserving the charm of a 1950's kitchen, Our plain 1950's kitchen received a facelift, while maintaining the charm of the original kitchen. We had to figure out how to stretch our small budget, so we kept the cabinets and put in new wood doors and all new drawers. Put doors on the open shelves. The contractor laid new porcelain wood floor tile and white subway tile with stainless steel tile accent backsplash. Hope you like the change as much as we do., Kitchens          Design

  • Can't change your mind in this bathroom, its to small. But finally some progress., This is the main floor bathroom and is off the kitchen. The house was built around 1910 and this part of the house was an addition( Not sure when). Its small,only 6' long x 4.5' wide (not including space in the shower/bathtub) I have to go out  to change my mind. Its hard for me and my wife to be in there at the same time. Please post any idea's to make the room larger or look larger. , Bathrooms Design

  • From 1953 to 2009 Before/After!, The last time the kitchen was done was 1953 and we believe that was the first time this 160 year old house ever had cabinets. 
The counter top was blue boomerang and so low that the dishwasher wouldn't fit under the counter. 
The dining area was knotty pine and the floors were layers of Linoleum and God knows what else!
After living with this kitchen for 10 years it was time for an update.  
We LOVE how it turned out.  I still can not believe this is the same space!!, Kitchens Design
