Series 4 - Bathrooms

Bathrooms may be small rooms but they still involve a ton of decisions! In this series we take you through a bathroom renovation in bite-size pieces. 
Have you decided to renovate your bathroom but you have no clue what you want it to look like? Brandy kicks off the new series with advice on how to get inspired and refine your vision. The more clearly you can communicate what you are looking for to your contractor and salespeople, the more likely it is that you will end up with the bathroom of your dreams!
Now that you have refined the vision of your dream bathroom, it's time to start designing the layout. This can be done on a computer or on paper, but either way you need to be aware of the standard measurements for all your components, and some typical bathroom layouts.

Now that you've refined your vision for your drab-to-dream bathroom, you need to start making some design decisions. In this episode, Brandy covers basic Cabinetry 101 so that you can familiarize yourself with the different types of construction methods used, as well as how the door and drawer fronts are attached, and all the other parts that make up a vanity or storage unit. 
When it comes to choosing the best countertop for your dream bathroom, there are a variety of materials to choose from, with differing price points, as well as pros and cons for each one. We will take you through four classic options (laminate, solid surface, stone, and wood), as well as four more unusual materials (concrete, tile, glass, and metal) so that you can choose the right one to suit the look you're going for.
