The most remodeled room in the house? Tie score: The two workhorses, the kitchen and the bath, share the honor. We recently devoted an issue to kitchen design around the world; this week we're delving into the possibilities for making over the bathroom—and tackling (most of) the work yourself. Do try this at home. Above: In her Brooklyn bath, French designer Corinne Gilbert uses a ribbon and painted wooden knob as a tp dispenser. Tour her apartment and its many homemade solutions in Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home . Photograph by Matthew Williams  for Remodelista. Monday Above: Stay tuned later today for seven space-saving, storage-minded DIY Ideas to steal from maritime design.  Tuesday Above: Read the story of Thomas Crapper and his "sanitary fittings" in this week's Object Lesson: The Old-Fashioned Loo . (And, on Wednesday, watch for Janet's  5 Favorites  post on low-flow toilets.)  Wednesday Above: We're eternally on the lookout for the best toilet-paper holder. In Wednesday's  10 Easy Pieces , Alexa presents our latest favorites (including these ceramic and wood designs from Japan). Thursday Above: Who knew an electrical outlet could change the look of a room? In the latest edition of our Remodeling 101 series on Outlet Placement , Janet explores smart places in the bathroom to plant some power (shown here, Julie's medicine cabinet with a built-in niche for an electric toothbrush).  Friday Above: A rental bath is its own beast, but not one that's untameable. In Expert Advice , Sarah details ways she has upgraded her own family bath—and without breaking any tenant rules.
