Lights, Camera, Action!
New lighting can give an old room a fresh look. Install new LED strips as back lighting around a mirror or inside glass cabinet doors. New pendants in front of the mirror will reflect light around the room and make the space brighter. A hanging fixture or chandelier above the tub or in the center of the room can add a spark of personality. For the LED strips especially, use some of our mounting and permanent tape to make sure they adhere properly to the surface of your choosing.
Re-tiling a shower doesn’t have to cost a lot if you mix and match materials. You can pair more expensive smaller mosaics with less expensive 12″ x 12″ tile and the results will be stunning. If you mix tile, you only need a small amount of each, so you may be able find some bargains at closeouts, Craigslist or salvage yards. But re-tiling is not the only way to improve the tile situation in your bathroom, it’s also important to keep it clean. A big mistake homeowners often make is not sealing the grout lines after doing a tile job, or not requesting the grout be sealed after having the job done for them. It won’t take long to regret this decision when irregular color patterns start showing up in the grout. But all isn’t lost. Manufacturers have vastly improved grout cleaning products that will get the job done. However, these products are pretty noxious and you’ll need to take a lot of precautions. An alternative is a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, and there is always the option of using a steam spot cleaner. No matter what you use, you’ll need some elbow grease and heavy-duty brushes. Once you’ve cleaned the grout and allowed adequate drying time, seal the grout. Be sure to check the manufacturer’s recommendation on any additional steps to take before applying the sealer.
