Does your bathroom have an orange sink, gold-veined mirrored walls, purple paint and a toilet that requires a plunger to operate? Then you need to enter the Ugly Bathroom Contest.
Several local remodeling contractors and suppliers have teamed up to sponsor a $9,500 bathroom makeover for a lucky Pierce County homeowner.
The contest was created by Duke York, owner of remodeling contracting company York Enterprises, and Harvey Rosen, owner of Rosen Plumbing Supply. The contest will be judged by the 65 members of the Design Professional Council of the Master Builders Association.
All that’s needed to enter is to email up to three photos of your porcelain-filled abomination to the contest site. And there’s more than one way to win.
“A bathroom that is completely disintegrated and falling apart is one way (to win). But maybe a ’50s bathroom that has turquoise fixtures and pink tile would be another,” York said.
The bathroom makeover is based on a 6-by-10-foot bathroom and will include Sheetrock, all the typical fixtures including a tub/shower, lighting, flooring, cabinetry, countertop and more.
“If they want rough plumbing moved or the walls kicked out, it’s on them,” York said. The contest is for only owner-occupied homes.
The winner will be announced at the Rex Awards (the MBA awards for the best remodels in Pierce County) at the Fircrest Golf Club on May 15. The winner does not need to be present.
