There’s a nugget of wisdom when it comes to increasing your home value: bathroom and kitchen updates are a sure bet.  Even if you aren’t worried about maintaining or increasing your home’s price, you have to admit that freshening up these hardworking rooms periodically makes them nicer for everyone who uses them.  We’re veterans of more than one bathroom renovation.  While those projects are definitely not the easiest we’ve tackled, we can honestly say the results were worth the hassle!


One thing I’ll say for remodeling a bathroom, it’s a good way to pick of some useful home improvement skills.  Unlike remodeling a kitchen, most homes have a spare bath (or two) that you can use while the other one is under construction.  Bathrooms tend to be on the small side as rooms go, which helps keep the cost of materials down.  The small-scale aspect makes it a good place to try out painting or tiling techniques before you apply them in larger, more visible parts of the house.  If you think a bathroom remodel is in your future, let these DIYed bathrooms spark your imagination.  The best part of these DIYed bathrooms is seeing what they looked like before the renovation, so make sure you click through the links provided so you can view the full transformations.
