Title:  The REAL "Storage Wars" - Bathroom Edition
Why Do You NEED A Bathroom Makeover?:  If you are looking for a sanctuary where can enjoy serenity and peace away from the daily grind, take care of business, and just take a basic shower, my bathroom is not for you. You will likely convulse upon entry wondering how anyone could function in the space, let alone a family of four including a disabled child. Somehow we make it work however as our sons needs change and he requires more bathroom assistance we find ourselves backed into a corner, literally. The current floor plan only allows one person and maybe one additional adult to assist while inside the bathroom. The bathroom is vintage and I do not mean that in a" hipster" kind of way. I mean that it is original to the home with only a few repairs and updates made within the past 50 years. Aesthetics aside, I really just need a bathroom where we can function and better help our son so that he can become more independent. The bathroom *is* ugly. The tile is ugly and in disrepair. The cabinet is missing a door. We have no storage, little ventilation, outdated and unsafe electrical outlets, flooring peeling up, and so much more. A new bathroom in our home would mean so much more than looks. It would mean functionality and a chance at having a better quality of life for our son who needs this more desperately than any one would realize. It would be nice to have a handicapped accessible bathroom that is sturdy and in which he could better ambulate. It would also be great for my family to finally have a nice bathroom that we can be proud of and also shower without fear of falling through a wall.

Title:  70s green vomit bath.
Why Do You NEED A Bathroom Makeover?:  Our master bathroom desperately needs a makeover. It is so dated that I am convinced it is causing me to prematurely age with each minute I spend there. My husband wears shoes in the bathroom because he is so terrified of the carpeting. The overwhelming avocado green color is only outdone by the dated cabinetry and hardware. Beyond the horrid appearance, the toilet flushes correctly about 40% of the time, the cabinet drawers fall out daily, and the drain is no longer helped by Drain-O or plunging.

Although our master bathroom makes a daily appearance in our lives, the main living areas have taken priority in all of our renovation plans. As we are planning to start of family, it would mean the world to us to have a master bathroom that we could feel comfortable in. An updated bathroom would set a positive tone for our day in the mornings and ease us into bed at night. We would love to have a fully functional master bathroom that reflects our personal style.

Title:  Been Beaten with an Ugly Stick
Why Do You NEED A Bathroom Makeover?:  Years in the making this bathroom was designed for the Ugliest Bathroom Contest.
From the simulated head cheese tiles, that are sliding off the floor, to the worn finish and rust stained bathtub. The tub, lined with complimentary plastic paneling popping away from the walls, allows water to roll behind it to the first floor.
There are other fine details like outlet covers that just about cover the openings cut for the electrical boxes and the room is topped off by peeling paint and period light fixtures.
All this, is tied together with a background of nicotine stained melamine covered walls.
Not only is this bathroom ugly, but it smells kind of weird too.
