Photos by PHYLLIS MOORE The bathroom Tiny changes can make a big difference when sprucing up one of the most important rooms in your home. By PHYLLIS MOORE pmoore@newsargus.com Thinking about sprucing up a bathroom in your house? There are all kinds of tiny changes you can make that are quick as well as affordable. A coat or two of paint. Peel-and-stick wallpaper. Switching out light fixtures or faucets or changing up the mirror. Pull out those outdated cabinets and go for something more modern. Or you may want to convert that tub to a shower or buy a new toilet. Do-it-yourselfers can have a field day, popping in a home improvement store or even the local Walmart for products at a range of prices. Williams Home Center in Goldsboro also has a wide selection of fixtures, faucets, sinks and even flooring and blinds on display for homeowners interested in renova- tions. It can be an a la carte purchase, says Vernon Williams, president, but the most popular trend he sees is a complete overhaul. "Probably 95 percent of the bathrooms, we go in and gut everything right down to the stud walls," he said. "That's not something a person would want to do themselves." The business has been in Goldsboro since 1989, at the Ash Street location next door to what was formerly Bicycle World since 1994. "We're a mini-Lowe's," quipped Jean Epps, who fields calls and handles foot traffic at the store. Williams said he considers his role "one-stop shopping" for homeowners interested in a renovation. From the style of shower they prefer to the amenities, from flooring to countertops, Williams is also prepared to incorporate changes that involve wiring and plumbing adaptations, he said. They work with subcontractors for wiring and plumbing, which translates to plumbers and licensed electricians. "We handle everything for the customer," he said, which includes installation, electrical work, plumbing, even hang- ing sheetrock and painting. "The customer loves it, because they don't have to do anything. We schedule everything from start to finish. "Normally it takes two weeks from start to finish. The largest part is the sheetrock and then the painting." See BATHROOM, Page 8
