The Lounge>NFT: I need to redo a bathroom. Anybody proud of theirs?
Buehler445 07:32 AM 02-13-2020
I have a bathroom that is in dire need of an upgrade. There isn't a ton that can be done with the space, but Christ almighty it's a pain in the fucking ass to find anything on bathrooms. Kitchens? Massive amount of design ideas, products, features, whatever. Bathrooms? A couple shitty pinterest posts. If anybody is a non-pinterest user and tries to get anything OUT of pinterest (pictures and whatnot), Seppuku suddenly seems reasonable.

I digress.

Anybody have any features or designs in their bathroom they're proud of?

Essentially mine consists of:
A shower (replaced shortly before I moved in I'm not going to mess with)
72" double sink cabinet vanity
A full length huge ass built in vanity above the sink with bypass mirror doors.
Shit flooring
A closet with bypass doors.
Toilet I probably won't replace.
1 outlet (:-))

The wall next to the shower is just sheetrock with crappy trim that is starting to show some effects from moisture.

I need to get some more electricity in there and probably different lighting. I'm guessing the electricity will require the big wall vanity to come out. If it doesn't I need to do something with the bypass mirrors regardless.

Some dicknose along the way painted all the wood in the house (trim, doors, whatever). Which I wouldn't hate so much if they would have chosen to SAND THE POLYURITHANE OFF FIRST. The fucks. They did not, so it all looks like dog balls.

I need some ideas, if anyone has any.

What in the dick shitting fuck

Yeah, it took me awhile to figure out WTF was going on because it never even occurred to me that it was even a possibility.

Phil made Me a killer bathroom about 10 years ago, and itís held up great and itís really freaking awesome. It has a fuck bench in the shower, glass block, and tile everywhere, complete with a custom concrete countertop. Iíd give him a call

Took out floor, toilet, vanity and shower..

Tiled floor and new tile shower to replace the old Fiberglas unit from 1985

Floor had a hump because of a high joist so he had to level it first

Old school tile guy who built the base in place

Vanity matches the kitchen cabinets we had built by a Mennonite cabinet maker, cherry, slide out shelves...countertop is some super $$ quartz, Moen fixtures cause they last forever and even I can replace the cartridge

New toilet is taller....as you get older you appreciate that more and more

Also as you redo bathroom think access when you are 80.....ageproof the bathroom now, seat in shower and great hand bars

Fortunately the person that lived here before me got old and spent the old guy money. Talk toilet. Seat in shower. Handle bars. Itís actually one of the reasons that we bought the house. Intend to retire here.

You just stomped on my dreams!!! Is it really that bad?

We just finished an upgrade on a pretty small bathroom.

I don't like clutter in the bathroom so we downsized the sink vanity by a few inches, the new gap next to the wall is workable.

Replaced the cabinet with a design that prevents anything being placed on top avoiding that temptation not creating another area hard to keep clean.

Replaced the multi-light fixture with a brighter single bulb fixture that actually sells as a porch light. Looks good and blends in.

Sanded and meticulously repainted the old existing heater/fan unit cover, cleaned the interior thoroughly.

Replaced the flooring. I read that the optics of which way you lay them has an impact on the room appearing larger.

Replaced all the trim.

Upgraded the toilet to adult size. My favorite.

Did it a myself, saved some $. Have had positive reviews from friends.

We recently added new sinks,countertops,toilet and shower.We were going to do away with the jacuzzi tub but opted to keep it.

Also went with ONYX shower and very happy we did.

I’ve got some people working up some bids. We’ll see if I’ve saved anywhere near enough money. Holy crap some of this shit is expensive.

I redid all 3 bathrooms in my house

1998: master bed room bathroom toilet/vanity and shower/ no window

Gutted everything and installed new floor and walls. Wonder board around the shower and encased the whole thing in tile. New vanity toilet and shower and Put in a heater/fan/light combo in the ceiling

2001: bathroom #2 bathtub/vanity and toilet

Gutted the floor and removed the bathtub toilet and vanity. New floor and tile. Wonder board around bath tub and new tub with tile et al new toilet and new vanity

2009: bathroom #3 toilet and vanity

New tile floor and vanity. Left the toilet.

The first two bathrooms were expensive but were done the right way. if you stay on them (recalk your shower and bathtub) theyíll last a long time

I couldnít imagine what doing it now would entail. I replaced my hot water heater myself in 2003 and it cost me $400 total for a 50 gallon hot water heater and parts. I drained and left the old one at the curb and the garbage guys took it. And no permit.

Now? Lol I canít do that anymore. No leaving hot water heater at the curb and you must get a permit. It cost me $1,400.00 for a 40 gallon hot water heater install in 2015. (With permit and disposal)

The permit nazis have over taken my town

Did you know that if you find a picture of a bathroom you like on there and want to save the picture, zoom in on the picture, send the picture to someone else or, well buttfucking anything, they have some fucking voodoo wizardry that won't let you do a goddamned thing to the media?

Fucking bane of my fucking existence.
