Before and After: A Bathroom Transformed

By: Ethan Jun 20, 2011

Our guest bathroom was in sorry shape- cracked floor tiles, vanity falling apart, even the toilet wasn't salvageable. So, we knew it was due for a major overhaul.

Here's what we planned:

  • Retile the floor: It was obvious that the subfloor was uneven causing the tiles to break apart. We needed to remove all the tile and put down concrete board to provide a nice, even surface.
  • New vanity: The bathroom vanity was original to the… Continue Reading

Shower Curtains are all-important when it comes to bathrooms.  I have to admit, I've been through 7 shower curtains in 5 years (and I have another one still in its packaging, waiting for its debut), and my husband thinks I'm crazy.  The problem is, I get antsy for new design quickly, and a new curtain is usually the easiest way to give the room a pick-me-up. 

What happens if you fall in love with a curtain design that is out of your price range?  You DIY it, of… Continue Reading

Why Bidets Are the Bomb (An Argument)

By: Bruno May 12, 2011

Bidets are the thumbs up. Try one today!A bidet is contrivance for post-evacuatory cleaning of your posterior, and it's the awesomest thing you never knew you wanted in your bathroom. Most people in the United States think bidets are weird and gross, but I guarantee (not like, legally or anything, but still) that once you have one in your house, you'll never, ever, want to poop anywhere else. That's right folks, I said it; doing a poo and wiping up water-less is just nasty. 

Nearly everyone I talk to about bidets (and that's nearly everyone) acts mystified. How do they work? What does it feel like? Isn't it icky? So after a brief but hilarious discussion with Chris, I deemed it worthy of a blog… Continue Reading
