A bathroom makeover that's crisp and bright

It took years, but Rose and Sal Trionfo finally got a new bathroom in their East Meadow home.When we bought the house in 1991, we werent crazy about the bathroom, says Rose Trionfo, 52, a secretary in the East Meadow School District. Sal, also 52, is a lineman for Verizon. It was dark, with wood paneling. We were always going to do it and then something would come up that was more pressing. Finally, a few months ago, a major leak made the decision for them.Though the road to renovation was long, it took only a few clicks of a mouse to determine the style of the new bathroom. Rose Trionfo clicked on houzz.com, where designers post finished projects, and saw a bathroom by designer Nanette Baker of Interiors by Nanette of Albertson.The bright, white and crisp bathroom was just exactly what I wanted, Trionfo says. Total: $24,032 (includes Bakers $1,500 design fee) Sylvia E. King-Cohen
