Nice video. The video footage gives a lot of neat ideas to add to my bathroom remodel. I really like the muted brass fixtures.

As a Kitchen and Bath Designer, I found this video to be excellent. It was informational and educated the consumer about how a Bath is quite detailed and every piece selected will make your bath an oasis in your home.

I would like a longer video with slower pictures and more details about what conveniences that lady wanted in her new bathroom. I am interested in varied sink heights, hair mirrors, storage uses, heat lamps, cosmetic vanities, wheeled seating and comfortable, practical flooring. Also, what details do other people want that I never thought of?

The video was good but too short and the volume could be improved as it was difficult to hear what was being said

I had a flood in my bathroom a few years ago and am legally blind. It is hard for me to do projects myself these days, so I am very thankful for sites like this. Thanks in a big way,

5 adults in a 4bdrm home, 1full bath and half bath. Our we take showers in shifts. It's CRAZY! Our house is 40 yrs old too. So if we do the full bath we won't have anywhere to clean, yuck! I don't know if I could stand that. Plus money is very tight. HELP US PLEASE!!!!!! Elkridge, MD

My bathroom is smaller than the one in the video. However, nice fixtures and new cabinets with undermound sinks will update it. I also think a higher toilet than the old one would be a good idea. I'll keep the colors light to make the room seem larger. I had difficulty hearing what was said on the video, but enjoyed the pictures.

Video Transcript for "Bathroom Remodeling Ideas, Tips"
Lupberger: Hi, I'm David Lupberger with ServiceMagic.com. Every year, bathroom remodeling is one of the most popular requests on the ServiceMagic website. People love to have nice bathrooms...and with all the choices in styles and gadgets these days - it's easy to see why.

Leda Abrams/Homeowner: It was just gorgeous...exactly what I wanted to do

Lupberger on bathroom remodeling ideas: For what is usually one of the smallest rooms in the house, the bathroom gets a lot of attention. But homeowners like Leda Abrams feel every square inch of her master bathroom was worth it.

Leda Abrams' bathroom remodeling ideas: I love the colors of the cinnamon, the warmer tones, I love the size of the shower, I love all the light in here...the door on the deck...the big mirror. I'm just really very happy with this bathroom.

Lupberger: No matter what the economy is like, bathroom remodels remain at the top of the list when it comes to remodeling projects.

Brevan Adams/Accent Design Build; It's an emotional buy for a lot of the clients I do business with.

Lupberger: Brevan Adams of Denver-based Accent Design-Build is a prescreened ServiceMagic.com professional remodeler. Accent specializes in all phases of home remodeling, which often include the bathroom.

Brevan Adams/Accent Design Build with bathroom remodeling ideas & tips: Lots of times when we do additions for someone, it's very matter of fact - we need this, we need that. But I notice when my clients when they talk about their bathrooms...they're very specific. And this goes for kitchens as well...they're very specific about the kinds of things they want in their bathrooms.

Kristin Vigil/Cress Kitchen & Bath: Most people are actually quite amazed at how many different options are available when remodeling their bathroom...how many different options are offered for flooring, counter, wall surfaces...different toilets, different tubs. There are quite a bit of options available.

Lupberger: And places like Cress Kitchen and Bath in Denver are specialists in finding out what matches your personality...and even opens your eyes to some things you may have never thought of.

Kristin Vigil/Cress Kitchen & Bath with her bathroom remodeling tips: Another trend coming in 2008 is the copper finish, along with body sprays, custom showers...using rainheads...just doing a lot more to make the shower more of a spa-like feel.

Kristin Vigil and her bathroom remodeling ideas: Something else we use a lot is a comfort-height toilet. These toilets sit up a little bit taller and most people prefer these because they're easier to use.

Lupberger bathroom remodeling conclusion: And we've barely scraped the surface of what's possible for these so-called little rooms. To find out how you can transform YOUR bathroom, go to ServiceMagic.com to find a prescreened professional remodeler. You can also find our new bathroom remodeling project guide that's designed to give you a deeper understanding and insight into your bathroom remodel. Home Improvement, Hassle Free
