This family bathroom in my lovely vintage home listing needed some help. The vinyl baseboard was in bad shape (I know, vinyl baseboard+bad shape is redundant). The walls needed repair and sanding, mirror and light fixture needed updating...toilet was a grey color and old. Help. For most baths I also recommend re-caulking everything and re glazing the tub if needed. Floor and entire vanity could have gone as well.
The clients only had a $1200.00 budget and the work was going to be done by a professional... not time for DIY and the finished product would not look as good anyway. The entire wish list including floor and vanity would have been $3000.00
We came up with a plan... repair, sand and paint the walls in a lush off white. This let the current counter top, vanity and floor blend in. Bath was caulked professionally. Baseboards were replaced (huge difference), mirror and light fixture were replaced. Toilet was replaced, clutter moved into the vanity storage and towel and paper fixtures were moved around.
What do you think? Nothing beats seeing the real thing... you don't see the real close up before and after detail in photos.
