I've been doing a small remodeling job on a nice cottage in Montford, one piece at a time. I showed off the downstairs a few months ago, but since it's been awhile, why don't I show it off again before we go upstairs and look at the bathroom?
I repainted the whole house and put in new kitchen flooring, and it looks great. I like the old woodwork. (Click a picture to enlarge.)
Here's the sunny master bedroom upstairs. The fresh paint really brightened up the space.
The upstairs bathroom was the last item on the renovation list. I had already painted the walls, but the fixtures had a few issues. The floor was worn out, the classic old tub was stained, the sink was too small, and there was no storage.
Here's the "before" picture:
Luckily the floor around the toilet only looks bad; it was just a cosmetic issue.
I was scratching my head about the tub, though. It was too big to carry downstairs and dispose of it. I doubted whether I could fit it through the stairwell.
Luckily I got a referral to Jeff Easley, who specializes in refinishing old tubs and showers. He was extremely professional, and he did a masterful job at refinishing the tub. I highly recommend his work. Look at that perfect enamel:
I put in new flooring and swapped out the sink, and now the room has real cottage charm. Check out those sloped ceilings. It reminds me of the country houses in Britain where they make use of every single space.
If you need a minor update done to freshen up your bathroom, why not give us a call? A small investment in an interior painter might make a big difference!
