Bathroom #1 - Remodel

I’ve been hearing you guys would like to have some information on what a bathroom remodel cost. Well, you’re in luck because tonight I’m gonna tell you all about it. 

I’m going to take you through a bathroom remodel I did not long ago, and I’m going to share why the bathroom didn’t work for my client, what we remodeled to fix it, and how much it cost. 


Here is a quick video of the before:

A quick little video of the “before”….

What did not work for them: 

  1. The double bowl vanity. There was not enough counter space, and they only used one sink. 
  2. The tub jets did not work, but also the tub was deep and hard to get in and out of, especially for folk planning their retirement home. 
  3. The shower was too small. 
  4. There was no storage. 


Here’s the only “after” photos I have at this time. Once the quarantine is over, I will try to get some more photos, I promise!! 🙂

The new shower. Faux glass block window, tile walls, grab bar, bronze plumbing fixtures.
The “quilt” look niche and a close up of the faux glass block window.
