Who: Diane D.
Where: Pima, Ariz.
We began by replacing the door with a pocket door to save space. The ugly carpet is long gone. Daltile octagonal tiles give us a fresh, traditional look. A black granite top and white sink complement the floor. Low-VOC white paint keeps the room bright, though we are still considering adding a splash of color. Subway-tile wainscoting with an accent stripe of floor tiles ties the walls and floor together.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
