When painting a bedroom that has crown mouldings, you want to start from the top to the bottom. This means starting with the ceilings first, followed by the crown mouldings, the walls, and lastly the baseboards. There are a few reasons why you should do this; to ensure that no paint drips onto finished areas if you are painting above it, and doing the edges up to the crown mouldings from the walls it gives it a finished look.
In this bathroom renovation, the customer currently had a regular door but wanted a pocket door instead. The existing hole in the door did not work with the new latch kit and part of the hole would have shown. As a solution to this, Rob glued a plug in the existing hole and made a new hole in the correct location to accommodate the new latch kit.
In this full bathroom renovation, there was only one electrical outlet originally. Rob added another electrical outlet to the other side of the vanity and relocated the existing one so they were symmetrical to each end of the vanity. When you are figuring out where to place your outlets, you must be careful to account for the height of the backsplash.
When you are tiling around a tub the first row must have a small space between the tub and the tile. Although the tiles on the wall will not move, the tub will flex. You don’t want the tub to pop the tiles or put pressure on them. Caulking will go in between the tiles and the tub to seal the gap after grouting has dried.
This week I installed a 5ft bathtub. However, the wall was 6ft which left us with a 1ft gap. Instead of leaving that space unused, I put a wall up and added a small closet to utilize the space. Extra room was left up top for some decorative accent pieces.
