Beautiful Bathroom Redos on a Budget

Homeowners share economical, innovative ideas for redoing a bathroom.

Think Unconventionally

In Kansas City, Mo., architect Cary Goodman wasn't afraid to incorporate unconventional materials into the design of his home. Instead of tile in the bathroom, he used concrete panels called Plycem (a silicone-infused concrete board typically used underneath floors and roofs for fireproofing). He says it is made of 20 percent recycled materials, and he paid only about $1.50 per square foot. He used Plycem on the floor, walls and ceiling, then added a glass-tile accent for further visual interest.
