Ironically, my bathroom was the first room in my house to stop being crappy. It was fully renovated before I moved in and it didn’t cost me anything. I know! What?? I bought my house with the help of the Long Island Housing Partnership (or LIHP). The short story is this: I was a renter for many years. Hated it. Got bedbugs from a neighbor. Had a nervous breakdown. Killed the
neighbor bedbugs. Started saving for a house. Went to the LIHP to meet with a counselor. Qualified for a great program involving my employer that helped me buy my house and get grant money to do some renovations. The end. (No, not really the end. There are stipulations, but if you’re interested in learning more, feel free to contact me directly.)
So with my grant money, I was able to do some much needed renovations on my crappy house that I could never have afforded to do otherwise; the most significant being a Brand. New. Bathroom. Here’s a picture from when it was the epitome of crappy.
I was able to design every aspect of my bathroom myself, from crown molding to hex tiles, but a stipulation of getting the grant money was that an approved contractor would do the work. He thought I was crazy when I gave him my 3D rendering, but I needed to make sure he shared my vision.
I know. No toilet in the video. I do have one, of course. I never thought I would have an opinion on a toilet design, but doesn’t this one look perfect?
