  • My Amazing Master Bath / Dressing Room Reno, I designed and general contracted my upscale master bath / dressing room (12'x16') remodel in a 30 yr old contemporary home. I spent almost 2 years designing and planning it – I bought EVERYTHING online, including a metric ton of porcelain tile (, and saved $$$$. I did all of the demolition myself. We also replaced the outside walls’ old insulation with new, higher rated insulation and insulated the interior walls and ceiling for sound proofing.

The only thing I didn't move was the toilet (Toto). The old bath had a double vanity and the standard 5' tub with a shower head. Now we have a 60"x42' jetted tub (SaniJet) and a separate 42"x42" shower. Accessibility for my tall husband who uses a wheelchair drove a lot of the design: wall hung double sinks (Sonia P05), pivoting mirrors (Motiv), a vanity (Ikea) on wheels, grab bars, and the shower has custom fold-down teak bench ( and an exposed shower pipe (Hansgrohe) that combines both a 10" rain shower head and a hand shower. We also replaced the room’s hard-to-open pocket door with a "barn door" style sliding door with a large, easy to grab handle. I also added a heated towel rack which is a wonderful treat in the morning after a shower.

The 3 old clothes closets had a lot of unusable space. We installed built-in wardrobes (Ikea) customized with drawers, pants and shoe racks, and a corner unit so all of the space is now usable giving us twice as much usable clothes and storage space. The old space also had a closet for the electric hot water tank. We replaced it with a gas tankless water heater (Noritz) that's "hidden" in one of the wardrobe cabinets. Having it so close to the sinks and shower gives us almost instant hot water plus the water tastes a lot better. 

The tiles (Pietra by Casa Dulce Casa) are 24"x24" with a contrasting strip of 4"x24". Even though I was buy it online (at 30% of list), I only considered the tile that was available locally so I could see the actual tile and colors before buying it. The shower, tub cabinet, sinks, and wall alcoves were designed to align with the tile. Since I knew that the tile layout and installation was critical to overall design of the room, I made sure that I hired an experienced artisan who understood the design and could install the tile to my specs. My tiler said it was different from anything he had ever done before but he did an incredible job!

I was also incredibly fortunate to find an excellent contractor through AngiesList. He helped me get expert subs - including my tiler. Watching them all work was like having HGTV live in bathroom. The project was a little more complicated than a standard master bath renovation as we also had gas lines run for the water heater and also up to our kitchen where we switched from an electric to new a dual-fuel range (GE Café). (We also had new plumbing run up to the kitchen and added a pot filler faucet over the range.) It took 3 months once the framers started. 

Attention to detail in both the design and construction meant no rework or added expenses. I hope you love it and much as we do. - Amy, Bathrooms Design

  • Garage, Our Garage has no back end to it; therefore, anybody can enter our garage easily. Our washer and dryer and extremly old hook-ups and will need to be replaced. After a home inspection the inspector told me the water heater is out of code. It needs to be raised 18" off the ground. The wood is infested with termites and there are holes in the walls. We have a vision of a home gym with mirrors on all the walls. The garage is very small and I would love to extend it a couple of feet out., Garages Design

  • Multi-purpose Basement Master Bath, This room is the master bath, laundry room, and water heater cloest, all rolled into one tiny space. Things are placed in strange places, the floor is not flat, the shower and toilet are practically on top of each other, there is horrible ventilation, outdated and ugly fixtures, and nothing goes together. There is also absolutley no storage even though this is the only utility place in the house. I have absolutely NO idea how to fix this room up. Especially for real cheap. Sorry for all the pictures, it is just so tight in here I couldn't get any good pictures . . ., Bathrooms Design

  • Laundry Room Needs Space Saving Ideas, I painted our laundry room/ entrance area in 6175 Sagey by SW.  I need ideas on how to use this tiny room with space saving ideas.  A way to hide the electrical box would be nice.  Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated. The laundry area leads into the kitchen so my plan is to paint the kitchen with the same green color.  I put this in the Kitchen section because there isn't a Laundry room area! , Kitchens Design

  • Kitchen pantry is in the water heater closet & the window looks into the basement access closet, My kitchen is about 150 sq. ft. and when I first bought this house 5 years ago- it was scary- I've put in new floors, painted cabinets, I had a problem with my new wouldn't fit in space - so I got the circular saw out & took out  a cabinet & shelves- oh, and I had to knock out a few tiles to squeeze fridge in.  I have wanted to also knock out the top cabinets so that I could put in an island and maybe open up the kitchen into family room.  I have a window that looks into a closet- the previous owner didn't replace with drywall when he did remodeling- and it's still there.  I would also love new tile or granite or concrete counter tops...ooooh some day., Kitchens Design

  • Castle , Small, dark kitchen in 80 yr old house was gutted by my husband, walls removed, and then re-drywalled. I scraped 2 layers of thick linoleum squares off of the floor, which was re-tiled with travertine and black galaxy inserts, I painted the kitchen what we call "Blurple" to pick up the color in the emerald pearl granite counters. The other wall and ceiling color is called "Bone white" & matches the travertine. Diamond and fleur de lis shapes are a subtle theme throughout the house. , Kitchens Design

  • Laundry Room, Our small laundry room was in need of a makeover. The water heater and central vac were so unattractive and the whole room was just sad. We painted the whole room a Tiffany robins egg blue. Then we added a tension rod with some curtains to hide the ugly water heater and central vac. We installed a new white shelf and lowered it so I could actually reach it because I’m kind of short. :) To get rid of additional clutter, I got a cookie jar and put our powdered oxyclean in there with a black basket for laundry room nick-nacks. We added a mirror above the utility sink, some dollar store flowers, and a bathroom shelf to hold some towels so we can actually use the sink like a real sink. I made a utility sink skirt just by using some sticky back Velcro and a cheap curtain panel.  We also installed two hooks and put some wooden hangers on the wall for shirts that don't go in the dryer. We spent about $200, but had a whole unopened can of paint because I thought we would use two coats, but really only needed one. Also, we are recent first time home buyers, so we had to get things like paint brushes, trays, etc. , Other Spaces Design
