Bathroom Makeover Gallery
Find inspiration for bathroom makeovers on the website for Country Living magazine. This feature contains sets of gorgeous before-and-after photos of 10 bathrooms and simple, clever tips. For example, one bathroom had an old toilet and vanity with heavy sponge-painted walls. In the after photo, it shows the homeowner kept the layout the same to avoid major plumping work, but created a beautiful gray effect with Moroccan cement floor tiles that look like like a fine rug, and replaced the sponge-painted walls with penny tiles. The outdated vanity was replaced with a pedestal sink, and the old toilet with an efficient commode by Toto. A custom medicine cabinet now hangs in the powder room with a modern towel rack. These examples show that dramatic results can be obtained by initiating bathroom-remodeling projects.
