The Frankos also tackled three bathroom renovations. The main bathroom was previously dark, cramped, and dingy, but it did feature a clawfoot tub (albeit lopsided and painted a startling red). After taking it down to the studs and fixing some plumbing issues, they added a window to bring in natural light, introduced wood trim, refinished the tub, and laid new floor tiles.
