Install a Quartz Countertop
The master bathroom’s new quartz countertop arrives without any holes for the sinks.
Of course, that’s normal. The sink comes with a template, so you just have to place that on the countertop and trace it. This gives you the guideline for cutting out the hole.
Once the sink openings are complete, the countertop can go into place, followed by the back and side splashes.
Replace the Master Bathroom’s Vent Fan
After I remove the master bathroom’s old fan grille and unplug the motor, I remove the motor and mounting plate. This NuTone QuicKit includes a new motor and mounting plate that fits right into the same spot. It also includes a new grille that makes it look as good as it performs.
- Added a GFCI outlet to the switch box for Tom’s side of the vanity
- Replaced the light fixtures
- Installed crown molding
Tom and Linda’s master bathroom facelift had stalled after they removed the wallpaper. The vanity was showing its age and the lack of electrical outlets and the location of the laundry hamper made it more difficult to use the space.
Now, the bare drywall is gone and the room has a clean, comfortable feel. The vanity has new life thanks to updated doors, a coat of paint, and of course the new quartz countertops.
New mirrors, light fixtures and the addition of crown molding create a more custom feel for the space, and that additional outlet makes it easier to use. So does the new laundry chute into the closet.
Finally, the conversion of the water closet doorway to a cased opening makes it all feel planned, not accidental.
And we were able to do all of this for about $1,800 in materials.
