Total remodel of our 1990's white elephant master bathroomcomments (1) March 13th, 2009 in Project Gallery
Our master bathroom was originally finished with white tile, white shower pan, white cabinets, white paint, white trim, and white doors. We lived with that bathroom for 10 years before we said enough was enough. Right before Christmas of '07 I noticed the shower tiles coming loose near the shower pan. I started removing a few tiles that night and didn't stop ripping the bathroom apart unitl it was totally gutted. I redesigned the floor plan and started reframing the walls. The plumber installed a body spray, hand held shower combo. The electricain rewired the whole bathroom. I installed a Warmwire heated floor, non-white tile, new 36" tall cabinets, black granite top, Kohler sinks and medicine cabinets, and a few coats of non-white paint and the project was finished. Three months later the bathroom was completed and I moved on to the next project on the honey-do-list.

Want to see the winner entries?
Fine Homebuilding editors are a finicky bunch, and opinionated too. So the task of narrowing down the nearly 150 entries from our “Before and After: What’s Old is New Again,” kitchen and bath contest to just five winners wasn’t easy.
After the field was narrowed down to a group of fifteen, the editors convened with coffee and notebooks into a conference room equipped with a projector (for easier viewing). After going back and forth, and sometimes cringing, a few entries kept rising above the others, and viola, we found our winners.
Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to the winning participants who will be mailed a new, DeWalt 18V 1/2" XRP LiIon Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver kit.
