The viewers voted online for everything from flooring to fixtures, cabinets to paint, light fixtures to tile, and bathtubs to shower doors. The votes were tallied and the contractors/hosts, with a little help from us, pulled all of the elements together for a beautiful and stunning room. We choose our master bath. Why? Here’s what the...> Read More
