Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Master Bath Makeover

We are continuing our tour of the 1964 contemporary home that we introduced to you last week.

To help you understand how the master bathroom was restructured, I have included some before and after floor plans of this space.  The original bathroom was cramped with a double vanity, toilet and tub, all lined up in a row.

Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Hall Bath Overhaul

As we make our way from the master bathroom to the kitchen, we have one more stop on the remodeling tour of our 1964 home update.

The hall bathroom was updated to reflect a combination of classic and retro styles.  This was achieved, first, by the use of Carrera marble on the walls and floor.

How do I convert a 1/2 bathroom to 3/4 bathroom inexpensively?

Jake,

I have a half bath I'd like to convert to a 3/4 cheaply but still have it add to the home's value. There is a toilet at the far end and a vanity cabinet and sink, all on the left wall as you enter the space. There is not enough room for a 36x36 shower base, nor for a 32" base, to fit in front of the toilet as it faces out, and the floor is tile so I'd rather not tear it up.

One-Week Bath: Round 2

This is a photo of our lead carpenter, Ted Kincaid, working on installing a tile floor in one of our bathroom remodels.

This complete, custom bathroom remodel was completed in 6 days in an 80+-year-old house.  This is the second One-Week Bath bathroom we have completed for this homeowner.

2010’s bathroom remodel trends

CBS's MoneyWatch recently posted a really great article about kitchen and bathroom trends.

We at Schloegel Design Remodel and One Week Bath, KC have seen a huge increase in calls from people that want to talk about bathroom remodeling -- so much so that bathroom remodeling is surpassing kitchens and additions by a significant margin.

Getting into hot water

While visiting a job site yesterday, I came across this repair job on a hot water flue. (Please note that we did not make this repair, it was done previous to our arrival on the job.) The repair is an old Folgers coffee can clamped around a furnace flue pipe.

A troubled tub

In this before picture, you can see a really dated jetted tub. This tub was never used because the first time it was turned on the water turned black from the residual that was in the jets—YUCK! The white tile tub deck and backsplash, as well as the polished brass hardware (that has oxidized), makes this tub replacement a must.
