Jenna and Andrew LaFevor, Chattanooga, Tennessee
There was nothing wrong with Jenna and Andrew LaFevor's spare bath—in fact, everything worked perfectly. But it hadn't been updated since being built in the 1960s, and its once stylish touches were starting to look a little dated. After months of adopting a "we'll just live with it" attitude, Jenna and Andrew decided to give the space a style reboot. Gone are the ho-hum tile floors, replaced by Andrew with marble—a materials splurge, but affordable for the small room. They nixed the old toilet in favor of a big-box, low-flow model and added a new marble-topped vanity and a faucet bought at a discount at a clearance center.
