Bathroom Remodel – Bryan, Ohio

READY FOR THAT BATHROOM UPDATE?  Plenty of issues came with this little bathroom remodel.  The home appears to be from the 1970s from the outside, but framing inside the walls of the bathroom appeared to be pre-1900.  This means that there were plenty of plumb and squareness issues to go around.  After correcting the slope/sag issues in the floor and installing new 3/4″ subfloor, it was time to start installing the finished fixtures.  The floorcovering is a vinyl plank flooring by Shaw; it’s attractive, durable, and affordable.  Plus, it’s 100% waterproof, making it a perfect choice for bathrooms and kitchens.  The old linen cabinet was removed so that the tiny 24″ doorway could be widened to a more spacious 30″.  You’d be surprised what a difference it made!  A new solid pine raised panel door was installed and trimmed out, along with correcting some wiring issues.  A new floor-to-ceiling linen cabinet was installed on the opposite wall, but not before one of the small windows was removed, insulated, and patched up.  A smaller 36″ vanity with granite top was installed centered with the original plumbing hook-ups, along with a new medicine cabinet.  Old recessed light fixtures were moved and replaced with new ultra-thin LED disc lights.  They have the same brightness levels, but burn much cooler and use less electricity.  Finally, a new larger, high-power toilet was installed, along with a toilet topper cabinet.  New pine baseboard really finished the look of the floor covering!
