Adding additional bathroom space to your home or renovating an outdated lavatory can improve your home’s usability and increase its value, too. To get the most practical benefits and value out of your new space, there are several factors to consider.

Before you get started, take into account these considerations about the design and function of your new bathroom from the remodeling experts at the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.


A primary consideration is the available footprint to create your new bath. This is often a concern as children reach their teen years and also with expanding families. If there aren’t enough bathrooms in the house, you may want to add another, or it may be that you simply need to improve the layout and features to make better use of the existing space. For example, if the bath will be shared by multiple members of the family, a separation of the sinks from the rest of the room may be helpful.


Determining how you will…

A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classic repertory theatre company, is thrilled to announce its 2020-2021 season with the theme, SPIRITS RISING. A Noise Within hosted a Facebook Live event where ANW Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott broadcast their season announcement from the Redmond Stage. New and returning season pass holders will have the opportunity to access priority seating beginning today. Single tickets will go on sale to the public on Tuesday, June 9.

“Through the ages and from the ashes of troubled times, the human spirit, indomitable and eternal, rises,” said Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. “Yes, we have all been united by particularly strange and trying days of late. And across the globe, along with inevitable chaos and conflict, our better angels are on shining display. Kindness, empathy, a helping hand to a stranger; these are the human qualities A Noise Within chooses to celebrate in our season. Hence our 2020-2021 season theme, Spirits Rising!”

A Noise Within’s inspiring new season begins in early fall with a straight run of Lewis Carroll’s masterwork Alice in Wonderland (August 22 – September 13, 2020) for audiences who had to miss the production in the spring of 2020. Alice is directed by Stephanie Shroyer, who had previously directed L.A. Times Critic’s Choice The Madwoman of Chaillot in ANW’s 2017-2018 season. Following Alice, A Noise Within will produce Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (September 27 – November 15, 2020), Stephen Sondheim’s musical thriller directed by ANW Producing Artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, who recently directed L.A. Times Critic’s Choice Buried Child.

Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott continued, “Last season, only a handful of audiences saw our delightful and moving production of Alice in Wonderland, and we’re excited to not only bring Alice back but…
