Five years ago, we went through a bathroom remodel. This may not sound that trying, but when you really only have one bathroom (plus a mini powder room that was added to the top of the basement stairs at some point and a scary pseudo bathroom in the basement), it's a pain. In the end, it looked much nicer than the before photos.
However, the guy who did the remodel was probably not as qualified as he should be. Here is the ceiling of the foyer on the first floor, which sits directly below the bathroom...
The last guy who remodeled the bathroom also talked us into painting our tub. DO NOT PAINT YOUR TUB! Seriously. It started getting awful stains and then it started peeling. Total disaster.
So, this time we are going with the guy who did our kitchen remodel. (Before and after.) New tub, new flooring, most likely a bunch of new plumbing, and more. Since we had to tear everything out to get at the plumbing problems, we are also putting in a new granite vanity top. The marble top we bought last time was cheap and was already badly etched and stained. Lesson learned.
Here is the granite slab that will become the new vanity top:
