When you purchase a resale property, there’s bound to be a room or two (and sometimes the whole house) that has finishes and fixtures that you just don’t like. Even when you’ve lived in a home for 5-10 years you may find that your personal tastes have shifted over time and you now have the urge to make some updates.

You can find anything from an oversized rectangular trough-style sink to something more ornate in a decorative glass, or perhaps even something hand-painted.

There are times when remodeling a room doesn’t require expansion by taking down walls or reconfiguring space.
