Master Bath Ideas When Remodeling

There are just too many master bath ideas when remodeling to list, but let’s look at just a few that will make your bathroom look amazing as well as be very practical:

  • Let’s get rid of your large soaker tub and have a walk-in shower installed instead.  Make sure, before you get rid of that soaker jet tub, that you have another tub in your home for resale value.  If you do, then get rid of that soaker tub and enjoy the many benefits of a walk-in shower.
  • Have a proper shower pan poured.  If not leveled the correct way, water won’t drain properly and mold and mildew will be your new guests in your bathroom that you don’t want to have.
  • Have new exhaust fans installed.  Exhaust fans now are pretty fancy with automatic switches and ways to detect excessive moisture in the room.  This will prevent peeling of paint up on your ceiling.

I’d love to come out and give you an estimate for your master bathroom remodeling project.  My team and I have been serving the Elmhurst, Downers Grove, Lisle, Naperville, Plainfield, Burr Ridge, Hinsdale, LaGrange, and all of Chicago area for 30+ years.

Staining and Varnishing Baseboards

Most homes in the Chicago area have a combination of painted baseboards and also stained baseboards.  Ninety-five percent of what we are doing is applying an oil based stain.  Let’s look at the video below that talks in greater depth about staining and varnishing baseboards:

Staining and Varnishing Baseboards

Because most homes have a combination of both painted and stained trim work, some colors are changing too. It used to be a very dark walnut color throughout.  Now, we are seeing more natural tones and weathered wood stains being applied.

95% of what we are applying, still, is oil based stains.  If you have pine, poplar, maple, birch, you should be applying a wood conditioner prior to staining.  Apply this with a brush or rag.  Read your directions on the can for more details.

Watch the video for all the details, because it’s too in depth to write everything out here.  But make sure you are addressing issues such as

  • Wiping off excess conditioner
  • How long you want to let wood conditioner sit on wood
  • Applying sanding sealer
  • Filling nail holes
  • Sanding between coats

Give me a call at the office at 815-260-6773 if you want to get an estimate for your interior staining of your trim work (baseboards, wood trim around windows, crown molding, staircase wood).  I’d be happy to help you out.  My team and I have been serving the Elmhurst, Plainfield, Naperville, Lincoln Park, Lisle, Downers Grove, Woodridge, and all of Chicago for over 30+ years.
