Bathroom Renovations: Bathroom is Your Sanctuary

Have you ever wanted to renovate your bathroom but was unsure of what you wanted n such a small space? Well, homeowners Tom and Gary share their quest to turn their master bath from drab and dull to relaxing and sensual with the help from Bathroom Renovations in home remodeling. Tom and Gary are new to remodeling and turned to licensed home renovator Amy Matthews. She had great ideas and options for them, but they ultimately stuck with their vision of large travertine tile with pebble tile accents.

Amy, Tom, and Gary worked together to build the perfect bathroom. Tom and Amy started with pasting mortem, a cement –like texture that insulates and has a shield- like mechanism, on to the walls. They then add a waterproof membrane before adding the pebble, to add the outdoors look and feel that Tom and Gary love so much. Great tips in turning this vision into a reality, after adding the pebble they had to add grout to make this hold. Grouting the pebble can be hard when using conventional tools, using hands works great.

Once the shower is complete, custom nook and the vanity is added to the bathroom. Thereafter, the cherry wood floating vanity is installed, which adds space to store their bathroom items. Given the fact that the counters had to float and were so heavy, they used buckets to stabilize the counter while the used an impact wrench to drill. Too often, then not, regular household items can aide as tools in renovating. Floating vanity and cabinet, leak proof shower, outdoor pebble shower feel, and a wider shower makes this bathroom a sanctuary like no other.
