|bathroom of a home we were shown last week|
I really love (considered and it isn't too strong a word here)
the recycled glass countertops
Those counter tops are about the same price as other solid surface tops. About half the price of marble or granite.

The bathroom is begging for a nice tub like this. None of the builders here seem to be using freestanding tubs. Even in that very nice bathroom shown first it's all about those big non-jetted Jacuzzi tubs. I think this one is both aesthetically more appealing and would be lots easier to clean.
The foyer on that ugly house could easy look like this.
My husband likes travertine floors and we are comfortable installing them DIY.
I believe the doors in the house (which are very nice solid wood) could be striped, bleached, pickled or whitewashed and look just like this ... all the existing wood doors and trim has turned orange-y with age (poly) ... they despair for fresh air.
I'm a huge fan of these very light (and not at all yellow) wood floors I think the chevron will be dated pretty quickly, but it is fabulous in that picture. I lean towards wood floors or concrete but I like travertine (without grout). I'm researching how to take care of it. It was in a vacation rental house in the Keys and I thought it was beautiful. I also like the wood ceiling treatments in these pictures and would like to use that in the foyer and den of the ugly house. It really could be quite special.
I would also want to replace the french doors and even the breakfast room window wall with this type black steel door/window treatment.
That houses a really bad kitchen - well here's a pic:
Hoping the kitchen can be totally gutted. If that doesn't fit in the budget it's a deal breaker. I cook.
