Ideas for Remodeling a Small Bathroom in The Woodlands, Texas

At first thought, it might seem a bit hard and irritating to get creative when your bathroom remodeling project is for a small bathroom. However, even a small bathroom can be transformed into the warm haven you’re aiming for.

Worry no more! You can use a couple of tips to eliminate the size barrier blocking your way. First and foremost, get rid of the tub! It’s not like you’re hanging out in it. Replace it with a glass shower cubicle. Glass gives a spacious feeling to the bath.

The best trick to get more space is using wall mirrors, preferably large ones. Moreover, mirrors with a couple of shady light sources can give even a small bathroom a great ambiance.

Thirdly, install heating appliances high on the wall. This way you’ll save space and you’ll be able to hang other things on your bathroom walls. And the best thing yet: install a sliding door if it’s possible. Fool around and get creative!

Ever Thought About Having Your Garage Apartment as a Home Office in The Woodlands, Texas

Now that your kid has moved out, what should you do with that old garage apartment? Many people like to keep it as it is, just in case the kid decides to move back home again, but if you have a practical spirit and are aware of the fact that your kid has just started his own life, then why not transform that spacious garage apartment into a home office.

Maybe the time has come to start your own business. So go ahead and make yourself the nicest home office possible. Repaint the walls and get some heavy-duty wooden flooring, decorate the walls with some nice wall decals or custom wall graphics, buy a brand new desk and set everything up so that you can work in a nice environment.

Keep in mind that sometimes it’s best to hire a contractor to do the job for you, since many people end up spending even more money by trying to do it themselves.
