Home Improvements & Repairs : Remodeling Ranch Bathrooms

Hi I'm Tim Gipson I'm going to talk to you about remodeling a ranch style bathroom Now your ranch style bathrooms were typically of something you find in the, in the seventies or early eighties and, or even the late sixties where a lot of your fixtures were the colored fixtures as far as your tubs and toilets and sinks they might have been the a blue color or a gold color

So, when you're looking at your older ranch type of bathrooms and you want to update that look a lot of times what we'll do is we will replace a lot of those older fixtures and go with the white fixtures Or counter tops that are your marble type of counter tops your granite, or a lot of folks are using the quartz which is a nice look these days But the big big difference from updating from the ranch style is either going back to a more traditional style which has a lot of architectural look to it a lot of details or to a more contemporary where the contemporary look is really more clean lines This particular bathroom that we're redoing right now is more of that contemporary type of look where you have a lot of clean lines, although we are bringing in some traditional features Now, with your lighting, from your ranch style and your mirrors in your ranch styles will have a lot times will have a medicine cabinets that are built in and, and so the look today is to really take that out

Now in this case we had something that's more contemporary where we had a large mirror here and then we had the what we call a Hollywood fixture which gives you a lot of light so this is this had been updated or was the newer look, but now we're bringing in some more of those traditional elements So even when you're remodeling from that ranch style you can still use some of your traditional such as a light fixture such as this which has some of the rod iron elements and when this bathroom is redone it will have marble tops with your white commodes which are more of your clean neutral type of fixtures but it will also bring in some rod iron elements into the fixtures and moving away from the brass or the bright chrome that you would see in older type of or ranch style bathrooms So I'm Tim Gipson and that's some tips on updating from a ranch style bathroom
