 Through the Garage Door

If you’re like me, you stopped using the front door to enter and exit your home long ago. In fact, many homeowners rely on their garage doors as the primary way to enter and exit their homes.

Are You Designing An Elegant Bathroom?

Are you remodeling your master bathroom? Perhaps you live in an older house that has things like outdated wallpaper as part of the decor. Or it might be that the master bathroom is too small and you want to add some space. Whatever the reason that you are having your bathroom remodeled, from accumulating ideas of the elegant decor you want to use to arranging for bathroom remodeling services, here are some ideas that might help you to design a master bathroom that will be elegant, yet practical.

Accumulate Ideas For The Remodel - Take some time to think of things you want to incorporate into your remodeled master bathroom. For example, visit model homes to get ideas from other decorators. If you do that, jot down the things you want to use in your own master bathroom. For example, in one model home, you might have seen gorgeous brass hardware that could be used in your own bathroom. If you feel comfortable taking a picture of that hardware, do so, as you will be able to refer to it later.

Think of combing through house decor magazines, too. When you like a picture, cut it out and file it so that you can show it to the person who is doing your bathroom remodeling. Check out your own house, too. For example, if you have a gorgeous crystal chandelier in your dining room, couldn't you use that same type of chandelier in an elegant bathroom? 

Arrange For Bathroom Remodeling Services - When you feel like you're totally ready to get your bathroom remodeled, contact remodeling service. Perhaps you used a remodeling service for your kitchen. If you liked the way your kitchen turned out, of course, you will probably want to use the same service to do your bathroom. Whichever remodeling service you end up using, think of asking to see jobs they have already done.

The service will more than likely have a portfolio of previous work. Show the person who is in charge the pictures and the ideas that you have accumulated already. Because the workers are experienced, and because they have the training to remodel your master bathroom, they can fine-tune your ideas and give you additional ones. 

Be sure to get everything on paper. For example, make sure that all pricing is on paper and have start dates and finish dates recorded, too.
