I have a feeling today’s question will resonate with many owners of previously-owned homes, or even with many homeowners who have been in their home for a couple of decades or more.
Mary from Tennessee writes:
My husband and I just bought this house and are in the process of renovating it. The one room that has me stumped is the master bath because of the LARGE amount of surface this outdated tile covers.
I will do the obvious things such as update the vanity, light fixtures, paint trim, etc. but I can not figure out how to make the bathroom updated without ripping out ALL of the tile. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
If you have some suggestions for Mary that don’t require her to tear out all of this tile, please share! It makes me exhausted just thinking about the major task of ripping out all of the tile, which would probably lead to tons of required drywall repair. Can we help her out?

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
