The number of bathrooms in a home can really make or break the home’s overall functionality for its inhabitants. But before you put your house on the market to look for a new one with that extra bathroom you’ve been dreaming of, you may be able to easily add a bathroom to your existing home — which will not only solve your problem, but will also up your property value. Here’s what you need to consider when adding a bathroom to your home.

Where will it be sited?

The great thing about adding a bathroom to your home is that it doesn’t typically require a lot of space. At bare minimum, you’ll need about a three-foot by six-foot space to add a half bathroom. If you require a shower, it will need to be a bit larger, and for a full tub even bigger (about five-foot by eight-foot). You can

Other than the kitchen, bathroom cleaning takes the most amount of time and work to clean since it has so many different types of surfaces and because, by its nature, it is a place that needs to be cleaned often because its frequency of use.

If you are like me, cleaning the bathroom is most likely one of your least favorite cleaning activities. Luckily, a checklist and some natural cleaners can make quick work of cleaning the bathroom.

Mirrors

Just like windows, mirrors can be cleaned with a 50/50 vinegar and water mix in a spray bottle and wiped with old rags from cut-up t-shirts or newspaper (paper towels leave a lot of residue with this method).

The easiest way, if you have them, is to use microfiber cloths (1 regular one wet, and

A great many kitchen remodeling projects end up disappointing a homeowner—or shocking them with the cost—simply because they did not spend the necessary time to determine what they wanted and what they could afford. 

Wants and Needs

Start by asking yourself what persistent problems you experience with your current kitchen. Is it a matter of too little space to cook effectively?  Too little space to store food and dishware? Do you lack dining areas? Are the appliances ineffective or too old? Or does the kitchen just make you wince because it is so dated and so ugly?

Establish a prioritized list of things you would like in your new kitchen, ranked according to their importance. It’s helpful to distinguish between those elements you absolutely need and those you simply want. 

Reality Check

Early on in your planning, confront the two-part reality of a kitchen remodeling project: the logistics of the

IOD Décor Transfers are a little delicate, need a little extra care, but are so worth it. With a little instruction, they are easy to use and add instant style to your projects. (Make sure to check out our new White Transfers for a beautiful design on your deeper richer colors! )

Preparation is key.

Keep your transfer with its backing sheet until you are ready to apply. Keep free of dust or debris, which will interfere with adhesion. Do not allow the adhesive side of transfer to touch anything prior to application. When handling the transfer, avoid letting the adhesive side touch itself (don’t do in a windy environment). Do not store transfer in extreme temperatures or humid conditions, which can affect adhesion.


Application

Start with a clean, dry, matte surface. If painted, make sure it’s well cured, and if you have sanded the paint make certain there is

I trust Gurney’s. Their 1 year guarantee really helps, and gives me the confidence I need to purchase plants I have never grown before. I’m really looking forward to growing Pawpaws, and love that I can rest assured that they will replace or reimburse my order if they die within this first year. It’s a very nice thing to know that I’m not just throwing my money at a company and hoping for the best. With Gurney’s, I KNOW that things will go well, because their customer service is excellent. – Dec 01 Source

Can’t beat the candy onions from Gurney’s seed. They are easy to grow and very sweet mild onions. They also store extremely well. I rarely have to buy onions since my candy onion last from harvest until April and my newly planted ones are often ready for pulling in June. – Dec 05 Source

So you’re ready to redecorate and redesign your bathroom. But dropping $20,000 on a deluxe spa retreat is light years away from what you can afford to spend. Here’s the good news: You don’t need mega-bucks to transform your bathroom into a relaxing, cool space. There are plenty of ways to renovate and redesign on a budget.

According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report, an average bathroom remodel costs around $10,500 while an upscale remodel is going to run you a hefty $26,000. However, if you do the work yourself and get creative, This Old House estimates that you can do a remodel for $1,000 to $3,000, or even less, depending on how much you want to change.
