The Details

Start to Finish: Three months

Paneling: Try an alternative to tile on the walls. Here, Heather used V-groove painted white. It stands up to moisture and, when applied horizontally, has modern appeal.

Shower and floors: Keep permanent finishes, such as tile, in line with the era of the house.

Tub: Salvage original fixtures when possible. The tub was in good working condition, so Heather just reglazed it for a fresh look.

Shower curtain: Soften utilitarian spaces. “I treated the opening of the shower as a window,” says Heather. The valance across the top and panels on either side frame the area like a window treatment, hiding the tub.

Vanity: Give flea-market furniture a second chance. Josh and Heather got rid of a prefab cabinet and replaced it with a simple side table. They topped it with a vintage sink and a marble slab left over from a kitchen remodel.
